About Right to Education

Every citizen of a country whether he/she is poor or rich has some in-born rights which they can exploit for being a native to the nation. However, people particularly belonging to the low class or those living in slums because of their ignorance and less attentiveness about these rights, they are helpless to stand up for justifying their rights.

One of the basic rights is surely the right to education in India that the illiterate or low-class people are deprived of because of their unawareness. For every child who is under the age of 6-14 years can avail free and basic primary education under the RTE Act issued by the Indian government. In order to put this act into force on an end-to-end basis, the government collects revenues from every citizen of India.

Like the consumer rights in India, the RTE Act has turned out to be very helpful for children belonging to SC, ST, OBC classes or even those general children who are economically not well off. As per the different surveys conducted over the past years, it has come into the knowledge of surveyors that children belonging to economically weak families cut a sorry figures in completing their fundamental primary education on account of lack in wherewithal and economic support. For this reason, RTE act was brought into force and worked wonders for such children.

Unfortunately, despite making efforts to raise educational awareness among the poor people, they are not conscious or willing to provide their children the primary basic education at the least. Even when they are aware that the education is free of cost, making their children literate is something they do not believe essential. For them making money is more logical than receiving education. Albeit the Indian government has prohibited child labor in many ways, the low class people of the society are yet engaging their children into laboring work in order to fulfill the need of earning money.

As a result of the poor people not fulfilling according to the welfare acts passed by the government, the governing bodies cut a poor figure in providing any valuable benefits to them. Nevertheless, they censure government for not efficiently launching these campaigns. Maybe the campaign is still lacking some special features and therefore it is the responsibility of Indian government to improve it completely and re-launch the same with more effectiveness. This way, people will be encouraged to admit their children to the schools and avail the benefits the government has to provide.

However, to meet the goal of RTE successfully, apart from the government, the public also need to focus on the importance of education.
