India's Education

In ancient India only boys from rich family's went to school. Boys left home around the ages of 8-12. They studied with a teacher or at a monastery. They learned many religious teachings and law and literature, studied medicine, math, and astronomy. They finished their studies by the age of 20 or 21. Most girls stayed at home and cooked, and did household chores. Girls from rich family's often learned to read and write. Girls also learned to sing, dance, and paint. Today, education is free for all children ages 6 to 14. Also children don't have to leave their houses for education.

-India is pretty noisy so bring along some headphones.
