It has been 5 years since RTE (Right to Education) has become a law in India. When it was enacted, the UPA government had showcased it as a “game-changer” for the underprivileged students in India.
A key provision of this law was reservation of 25 per cent of the seats in schools to under-privileged students.
A recent study done by IIM-A and Central Square Foundation shows that only 29% of the 2.14 million seats reserved in the private sector for underprivileged have been filled.
There are wide variations – in Delhi, 92% of the seats were filled up and in UP, it was only 2%.
It would be worthwhile for all State governments who are below this national average of 29% to figure the best practices which have worked in States like Delhi and adopt these practices to lift their performance.
Hopefully, this national average of 29% will improve over the years to come.
