Union Budget and health

Most developed countries in the world like the US, UK and France spend around 6-7% of their national budget for public education and health, while India allocates around 3% for education and around 1% for health.
we must realise that economic growth is meaningless unless it reaches 70% of India’s poorest.The Constitution also places more importance on primary education.There should be an end of public unaided schools. The government should utilise the money towards its government schools.
The allocated budget (Rs 750 per child) is not enough.How do we address the problem of an increasing dropout rate in schools at the elementary and primary level if we choose to ignore issues of infrastructure, medical support etc.
