With social inequality there is no education for all, says Argentinean archbishop

.- During his weekly program, “Keys to a Better World,” Archbishop Hector Aguer of La Plata, Argentina, said it would not be possible to achieve the goal of education for all as long as there is social inequality in the country.

The “noble ideal” that all children receive an education cannot easily be reached as long as there are so many families in dire straits in the country, he warned.

Archbishop Aguer explained that nonetheless, “it is not only an economic question.  It is a social and cultural one as well,” as “zones, sectors and portions of the national population exist that have been relegated or forgotten and that lack basic skills and the elementary resources to react with dignity to the situation of injustice into which they have fallen.”

“It seems unreal that in Argentina, a rich country—which anyone on the outside can easily see—such a situation affects vast sectors of the populace.  And this is not only something that should motivate many people and institutions to charity and the solidarity of some social groups, but it should also lead us to re-think the wider state of Argentinean society,” he said in conclusion.
