Education Freedom Day
Education Freedom Day is held on March 21. The first Education Freedom Day was observed on January 17, 2013. The date, however, had to later be changed due to incompatibilities with local holidays such as Chinese New Year and summer holidays when schools are closed. Presently it is observed in March. In 2016, EFD was observed on March 21. Event organization is handled by DFF and volunteers around the world. Volunteers are encouraged to organize events that benefit local educational communities. This event in the third decade of the month March is annual. Help us
No person shall be denied a right to an education. In the exercise of any functions which it assumes in relation to education and to teaching, the State shall respect the right of parents to ensure such education and teaching is in conformity with their own religious and philosophical convictions.
Education shows us the importance of hard work and, at the same time, helps us grow and develop. Thus, we are able to shape a better society to live in by knowing and respecting rights, laws, and regulations. Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom. It helps people become better citizens, get a better-paid job, shows the difference between good and bad.
