THE REALITY OF RIGHT TO EDUCATION By Eisha

Since independence, country is trying its best to fulfill all the commitments for making education freely and easily accessible to its citizens. From time to time, different policies and programs were initiated to boost education system in India and to encourage Universalisation of Elementary Education, but the real scenario is really unacceptable. However, whatever the achievements are, these were still only on papers and actually due to various reasons and factors, these obligations could not be achieved yet. One of the best moves on this way was to provide free and compulsory education to the Children from the age of 6-14 years as a fundamental right that is RTE (2009). RTE Act was enacted by Govt. of India on 4 August 2009 and came into effect on 1 April 2010 all over the country except Jammu and Kashmir. The RTE Act promises to guarantee free and compulsory education to each and every child with and age group of 6 to 14. Various provisions are given in the Act to deal with issues related to enrollment of children from minorities and socially backward classes as well as children with special needs; re-admission of drop out students; teaching learning material; special resources to needy students etc. The current study highlights the status of RTE Act, with special focus on admission of students under this act and provision of resources to the needy students in grant in aid schools of Vadodara city. Keywords: Right to Education, Grant in aid schools.
