To understand the problems in execution and implementation of Right to Education (RTE) in the district, ‘Shiksha Samvad’, a workshop cum seminar was conducted at the Zila Parishad premises today.
The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act came into effect from April 1, 2010 after the constitutional amendment of Article 21a, which gave RTE the status of Fundamental Right. According to this law, all children falling under the age category 6 to 14 years have the right to get primary education (i.e. education till class 8th) for free.
But this is a huge task and the government is facing many problems in implementing this Act.
In the workshop today, many officials and non-officials working in the field of child education and specifically working to implement this Act came together to share their experiences and to suggest methods and solutions to many issues being faced in the execution of the Act.
On the occasion, Bharat Mehta, DEEO Udaipur; Paresh Shah, Program Director NCPCR, New Delhi; Prem Shankar Paliwal, District Coordinator, NCPCR; Abrar Ahmed, CEO Zila Parishad took part in the discussions.
