A Study of Awareness, Implementation and Challenges of Right to Education Act, 2009 in Schools of Delhi
Free and Compulsory Education was guaranteed to the children of age group 6-14 years by the Right to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009. The Act provides a justiciable legal framework that enables all children in the age group of 6-14 years free and compulsory admission, attendance and completion of elementary education. In the present research study the status of awareness and understanding of provisions of RTE Act, its implementation, challenges and suggestions amongst teachers, principals, SMC members, parents and NGO workers in Municipal Corporation Primary Schools of Delhi, has been tried to explore. The data was collected from 24 Schools of Delhi, including 120 teachers, 24 Principals, 24 SMC members and 48 parents. The findings of the research showed a wide gap between what was expected to be done and what has been done so far.
