July 2010 - Right to Education Act

July 2010 issue of ezine deals with 'Right to Education Act'

Though the constitution provided ‘right to education’ under Article 45, it has taken nearly 60 years for the various successive Governments to enact a law.  For the first time in Indian history, a law was brought into force by the Prime Minister addressing the Nation.  Though debates are going on about  the various challenges in implementation, it is a right step towards building the nation.  Though the scheme may face lot of teething problems for another four or five years, the real fruits of the scheme will start emerging after nearly 10 years.  Earlier, many were skeptical about RTI Act, when it was launched.  Presently, RTI Act has started giving good benefits.
The issues like 25% reservation in private schools, creating awareness among the poor parents who send their children for work, identification of eligible children may pose challenge during the initial period. If the general public, NGOs and the Government officials show some commitment, this historic law can position India  at the top of the world.
