Right of children to free and compulsory education act 2009: A critical view
Dr. Pratibha Sagar, Kundan Singh
Place of education in any society is a commonly acknowledged fact among all. Since independence, even prior to independence, in spite of making several provisions, India could not mark at satisfactory level so far as Universalization of Elementary Education is concerned. This paves the way to RTE Act, 2009 because Every human being is entitled to education which unlocks the human capacities and capabilities. The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act (RTE Act, 2009) has been implemented in the country since 1st April, 2010. All the educational functionaries at the Primary and Upper level such as teachers, teacher educators, Administrators, children and parents are to be sensitized on the Act as well as the issues and concerns of implementation of the Act.
