Free and compulsory education of children in the 6 to 14 age group in India (1) become a fundamental right when, in 2002, Article 21-A was inserted in the 86th Amendment to the Constitution. This right was to be governed by law, as the state may determine, and the enforcing legislation for this came eight years later, as the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act, 2010, or the RTE Act.
(2) With examples from all around hundred countries which having various and similar pieces of legislation or regulations already in place, there were practices drawn from similar experiences. (3) Since its enactment, the RTE Act has been lauded and disparaged. But there has been a concern not only over its provisions but also about the lacunae in the school education system. However, there are clauses in the Act (4) which has enormous catalytic potential but it have gone largely untouched and unnoticed. A focus on three of these provisions can result in an immediate and discernible impact.
The RTE Act is a game-changer in that it establishes that the onus to ensure free and compulsory education lies on the state. (5) However, the ‘compulsory’ and ‘state liability’ part needs to be imbibed by the educational bureaucracy, which is now lacking.
