A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of the ‘Right to Education’.
The Right to Education Act of India is defined as follows: “The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act or Right to Education Act (RTE), is an Act of the Parliament of India enacted on 4 August 2009, which describes the modalities of the importance of free and compulsory education for children between 6 and 14 in India under Article 21a of the Indian Constitution.”
With the Right to Education Act thus, the education of young children has come into effect in the Indian Constitution as a Fundamental Right. The Act further decrees that private schools must reserve 25% of the seats for underprivileged children.
Finally, the Act also states that “no child shall be held back, expelled, or required to pass a board examination until the completion of elementary education.”
