The Right of children to Free and Compulsory Education Act or Right to Education Act (RTE), is an Act of the Parliament of India enacted on 4 August 2009, which describes the modalities of the importance of free and compulsory education for kids between 6 and 14 in India under Article 21a of the Indian Constitution. India became one of 135 countries to create education as a fundamental child right when the Act came into force on 1 April 2010.
The Act makes education a fundamental right of each child between the ages of 6 and 14 and specifies minimum norms in elementary schools. It requires all private schools to order 25% of seats to children (to be reimbursed by the state as a part of the public-private partnership plan). Kids have been admitted into non-public schools supported by economic status or caste-based reservations. It also prohibits all unrecognized schools from practicing and makes provisions for no donation or capitation fees and no interview of the kid or parent for admission. The Act also provides that no child shall be held back, expelled, or required to pass a board examination until the completion of teaching. There’s also a provision for special training for college drop-outs to bring them up to par with students of identical age.
