Right to Education: The Way Forward

Vinay Rai (Author) Narendra Kumar (Author)
Synopsis At present, there are nearly 22 crore children in the relevant age group. However, 4.6 per cent of these children (nearly 92 lakh) are out of school. The school management committee or the local authority will identify the drop-outs or out of school children above six years of age and admit them in classes appropriate to their age after giving special training.

The Act makes it a right of every child to get education and makes it obligatory for the appropriate governments to ensure that every child gets free elementary education. The Act mandates that even private educational institutions have to reserve 25 per cent seats for children from weaker sections.

This book by two eminent & experienced educationists captures this essence of the Act by explaining its relevance to an aspiring India and millions for whom the legislation is a key tool for emancipation. It analyses key obstacles and challenges before the Act. The study also highlights the importance of Public-Private-Partnership model in the country's education system and suggests a prescription for successful implementation of the Act.
