Providing a comprehensive brief of the Model Rules under the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009, providing analysis to highlighting our argument on how private unaided schools conforming to the 25% reservation quota be reimbursements for those selected seats.
Detailing the 6 changes the Centre requests be made to the Right to Education Bill, 2008.
The Bill seeks to expand access to elementary education by a) increasing the number of state schools; and b) leveraging the 25% reservation of seats in all private schools. The Bill expects the private sector to discharge the constitutional obligation of the state while having no binding duties for the state. The analyses exposes the weaknesses of the Bill, as well as the ambiguity that relaxes the state from accountability and compliance with standardised norms.
Providing a depth look into the 2003 Education Bill and highlighting key aspects of the bill to illustrate how the Bill is not meeting its objectives, and does serious damage to areas of education where some degree of competition and choice exists—both which CCS believes are fundamental agents for a thriving and prosperous education ecosystem.
