It was Saturday afternoon and although the world was on vacation, I was busy serving guests for lunch at my owners’ house. Talking and laughing could be heard in every corner of the house. They didn’t bother me much, especially since I had to answer every call according to the guests or the host. It was 2009, and I was seven years old, wearing a sweater and shorts and bragging about successes in my room, trying to make one child better than another. Suddenly, the old man read in the magazine that the government must pass a new law – the Right to Education Act. But for me the general conversation about everyday work was more meaningful than this new topic, because I couldn’t read or understand it, the high-level conversation, they talked about their kids, and I talked about it. Did not work Even understanding the meaning of the word “correct”. This old …

Status of Education: A little Better, But Far From Good, Still

Action History:

The Free and Compulsory Education Bill was the first attempt by the central government in 2003 to enact a comprehensive law on education since the 86th amendment to the constitution. The bill is a perfect example of strengthening officers up to six different institutions to ensure free and compulsory education. In addition, for economically disadvantaged students, the government has allocated 25% of private school seats to the old licensing permit regulation system. The bill was rejected after criticism.

The Right to Education Bill was the second attempt by the central government to establish a proper education system. Some important provisions of the Act:

Promise to provide the same quality free and compulsory education to all children from 6 to 14 years of age up to primary level.

Order to allocate 25% seats in joint private schools for students from weaker sections. Schools are paid less school fees or tuition fees in public schools. Aided schools will “retain at least one percent of adoptive children, as annual recurring support will be at least 25 percent of recurring costs.”

• All other students are required to open and board new government schools and all students must study in their area within three years of graduation.

The government sets up School Management Committees (SMCs) for parents and teachers in government schools and support schools. SMCs will own school assets, manage accounts and pay salaries.

Establishes a National Commission for Primary Education, oversees various “authorities”, “local authorities” and “competent authorities” for enforcing and regulating the bill and resolving issues under the Act. Too many rules. Payment of deeds and offenders.

Transfer of teachers from all public schools who do not move to individual schools anywhere – Establishment of school-based teaching staff.

The Finance Committee and the Planning Commission rejected the bill due to lack of funds and sent a model bill to the states to take necessary action.


Apparently, 60 years later, universal primary education remains the dream of an era. Although approximately 95% of higher education institutions have an annual standard of education (ASER 2009), 52.8% of Grade 5 students do not have the expected reading skills in Grade 2. Free and compulsory primary education was introduced in December 2002 through the 86th Amendment to Article 21 of the Constitution. In doing so, the right to free and compulsory education for children was drafted in 2005. It was reconsidered and became law in August 2009, but was not reported for about seven months.
