ICSSR sponsored National Seminar on ‘Review of Right to Education (RTE) Act-2009: Access and Quality’ is being organized by Budha College of Education, Karnal, Haryana, during February 14-15, 2015. The Right to Education (RTE) Act-2009 has finally become a reality, and guarantees every Indian child the most basic fundamental right…the Right to Education. The Act, with its latest amendment, became operational on April 01, 2010, and it guarantees every child, in the 6-14 age group, both free and compulsory education. The Right to Education Act (RTE) does not do enough justice to enable marginal improvements in quality and foster creative solutions within the larger educational system. It seems to be an unassailable fact that the RTE Act appears, on paper at least, to be an ideal solution to the problems of education in India. Passing a bill is an easy thing to do. What seems to be the key in ensuring this Act successful, is to make parents, particularly in rural areas, aware of the benefits of education, and to encourage them to send their children to schools. Like many attempted social changes in India, this too has to be started at the community levels. The Act wants to bring a widespread change of the age-old mindset, and make the people at the helm of affairs accountable.
However, the HRD Ministry is planning to review the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan and Right to Education Act. Therefore, the theme of the Seminar has a great relevance, and the brainstorming during the deliberations, will definitely come out with a lot of meaningful suggestions to achieve the aim of “Right to Quality Education for All.”
