RTE ACT NEWS : RIGHT TO EDUCATION ACT IMPLEMENTATION FAILURE

RTE ACT NEWS : RIGHT TO EDUCATION ACT IMPLEMENTATION FAILURE
Various News of RTE Act and Its Implementation in India :-



जागरूकता के अभाव में परवान नहीं चढ़ा आरटीई
RTE did not go through due to lack of awareness
नागौर।जरूरतमंद एवं असहाय बच्चों को निजी स्कूलों में नि:शुल्क प्रवेश देकर अच्छी शिक्षा देने के लिए वर्ष 2010 में लागू किया गया शिक्षा का अधिकार अधिनियम उदासीनता के चलते परवान नहीं चढ़ पाया है। एक्ट को लागू किए हुए चार वर्ष पूरे हो रहे हैं, लेकिन आज भी इसकी स्थिति संतोषजनक नहीं है।


आरटीई के नियमों में पेचिदगियां इतनी है कि खुद अधिकारी भी समझ नहीं पाए हैं। आरटीई एक्ट को लेकर जागरूकता नहीं होने का परिणाम यह है कि जिले में 1600 से अधिक निजी स्कूलों के 10 हजार बच्चों को भी नि:शुल्क प्रवेश नहीं मिल रहा है, जबकि हर स्कूल को पहली कक्षा में 25 प्रतिशत बच्चों को नि:शुल्क प्रवेश देना अनिवार्य है। नियमानुसार कोई भी व्यक्ति, जिसकी मासिक आय 20 हजार 700 रूपए तक है, अपने बच्चे को क्षेत्र के निजी स्कूल में नि:शुल्क प्रवेश दिला सकता है। जहां उसके बच्चे को नि:शुल्क शिक्षण के साथ किताबें, स्कूल यूनिफॉर्म आदि भी फ्री दिए जाने हैं।

नियमावली स्पष्ट नहीं
आरटीई एक्ट की नियमावली खुद शिक्षा विभाग के अधिकारियों के लिए पहेली बनी हुई है। निजी स्कूल जरूरतमंद बच्चों को नि:शुल्क प्रवेश तो दे रहे हैं, लेकिन नियमों को लेकर गफलत होने से पुनर्भरण राशि नहीं मिल रही है। यह विडम्बना ही है कि आरटीई के एपीसी का पद साल भर से रिक्त है। जिले की स्थिति यह है कि निजी स्कूलों के संस्था प्रधानों को नियमों के मकड़जाल में फंसा रखा है। पुनर्भरण में भी अधिकारी अपनी मनमर्जी चला रहे हैं। - विनेश शर्मा, सचिव, निजी स्कूल एसोसिएशन, नागौर


नियमों की जटिलता बनी बाधक

एक्ट के नियमों की जटिलताओं का अंदाजा इसी से लगाया जा सकता है कि निजी स्कूलों द्वारा पुनर्भरण राशि के लिए पेश किए गए आवेदनों में से आधे तो ब्लॉक अधिकारियों के भौतिक सत्यापन में फर्जी घोषित हो रहे हैं।
एक्ट के अनुसार नि:शुल्क प्रवेश में वार्ड के बच्चे को वरियता दी जानी है। इसके बावजूद पूरे प्रवेश नहीं हो तो दूसरे वार्ड के बच्चों को प्रवेश दिया जाना चाहिए। इस वर्ष ऑनलाइन व्यवस्था होने से नि:शुल्क प्रवेश में स्कूल व बच्चे का वार्ड बदलते ही प्रवेश निरस्त मान लिया गया है। हाईकोर्ट के आदेश हैं कि किसी भी बच्चे को नि:शुल्क प्रवेश देकर बाहर नहीं निकाल सकते।


सरकार ने शिक्षण शुल्क, किताबें, यूनिफॉर्म व बस किराया मिलाकर पुनर्भरण की फीस 11 हजार 900 रूपए तय किए। इसके बाद शिक्षा विभाग ने निजी स्कूलों से शिक्षण शुल्क की जानकारी मांगी, स्कूलों ने भी केवल शिक्षण शुल्क की जानकारी दे दी। अब उन्हें पुनर्भरण का भुगतान भी मात्र शिक्षण शुल्क का ही हो रहा है, जबकि किताबें, यूनिफॉर्म व बस किराया भी देना चाहिए। इसी गफलत में बच्चों को बाकी का खर्चा उठाना पड़ रहा है

PIL: Rajasthan failed to implement RTE properly

 RTE properly|Rajasthan|PIL|
RELATED
JAIPUR: The Rajasthan High Court has issued a notice to the state government on the tardy implementation of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act in the state.

A bench of Justice Ajay Rastogi and Justice J K Ranka issued the notice on a PIL filed by Prof Rajiv Gupta and others. The government was asked to respond within four weeks. According to petitioner's counsel Pratik Kasliwal, the RTE Act came into force in April 2010 and a three-year time was given to all schools to improve basic infrastructure. However, even after three years, most of the schools are lacking basic infrastructure.

Also, all the aided and unaided private schools are under obligation to provide 25% reservation to children belonging to weaker sections and disadvantaged groups by virtue of Section 12 of RTE Act, 2009. Here too the state government failed to fulfill its legal duties properly, it was pointed out. The petition claims that the state government had failed to give wide interpretation to the term "children belonging to disadvantaged groups" as it only includes children of SC/ST/group having less than Rs 2.5 lakh annual income.

"There are many others like street kids, migrants, children in conflict regions, children of manual scavengers, sex workers and even those girls of upper caste and majority religion(s) who are not allowed to undergo education due to conservatism, patriarchy and orthodox beliefs, who are facing serious disadvantages too."


The state government vide notification dated March 29, 2011 specified the category of "children belonging to disadvantaged groups" but did not include the above categories of children, which is essential if the spirit of inclusiveness embedded in the RTE Act has to be followed.

The petition pointed out that the state government had failed to provide free pre-school education which would create a strong foundation for the children belonging to weaker sections and disadvantaged groups in order to stand at par with other children of same age group.

It pleaded the court to ensure that schools which have pre-school education and are making fresh admission in pre-primary and Class 1 will have to conform to 25% reservation at all levels wherever fresh admissions are there. The admission process by lottery system should be conducted in front of all parents who have applied for such admission and in the presence of a functionary of the education department among others, it demanded.

Only 4% EWS parents aware of reservation under RTE Act: Study


The report was released at a Delhi state-wide conference on the Right to Education Act by Indus Action — an NGO.


Only four per cent of parents from economically weaker sections (EWS) are aware about the availability of 25 per cent seats under EWS category in the capital’s private schools, under the RTE Act, a study has shown.
The study also found that only half of these four per cent parents have managed to navigate through bureaucratic and psychological barriers to apply.
The report was released at a Delhi state-wide conference on the Right to Education Act by Indus Action — an NGO working exclusively towards implementation of Section 12(1)(C) clause of the RTE Act — with support from Central Square Foundation.
“The Right to Education has opened up many opportunities for children from economically weaker sections. Yet, despite the best efforts to spread awareness, eligible families seem to have little knowledge about the policy. Section 12(1)(c) of RTE Act has the potential to put roughly 10 million children across India on a different path in the next five years, making it the single largest opportunity seat scheme in the world. But we need a better state-wide implementation plan for that to happen,” Tarun Cherukuri, founder, Indus Action, said.
The report details on-ground implementation of the mandatory 25 per cent reservation for EWS children and those who are socially disadvantaged. It is based on responses from 350-odd families in South, Southeast, Southwest, North, Northeast and Central Delhi.
Section 12(1)(c) of the RTE Act mandates that private unaided schools reserve 25 per cent of their seats in entry-level classes for EWS students and those from disadvantaged groups.
Even though awareness levels are low, the report states that eligible families were adequately equipped to apply.
“ 94.8 per cent people had at least one of the birth proof certificates. 96.85 per cent people had at least one of the accepted documents for address proof. And 82.8 per cent people had at least one of the accepted documents for proof of income,” the report states.
Yet, families chose not to apply, with the exception of four per cent families who did — high fees being a major concern discouraging them from applying to private schools.
The report notes that families did not approach government officials for information, relying instead on help from other families ( 29 per cent) and employers (28 per cent)

RTE कोटे से ऑनलाइन ऐडमिशन का हुआ आगाज
Apr 11, 2014, 08.30AM IST
Tweet
मुंबई:ऑनलाइन ऐडमिशन के जरिए भले ही सरकार गरीब वर्ग के बच्चों को शिक्षण सुविधा मुफ्त में देने की बात कही है पर, व्यावहारिक तौर पर देखें तो मुंबई स्थित 304 स्कूलों में से पंजिकृत हुए 282 स्कूलों में बच्चों को ऐडमिशन मिलना किसी चुनौती से कम नहीं है। अभिभावकों का आरोप है कि राइट टू एजुकेशन (RTE) के तहत जब स्कूलों में आवेदन करते हैं, तो अधिकतर स्कूल्स द्वारा उनके बेवसाइट पर RTE के बारे में कुछ जानकारी ही उपलब्ध नहीं है। इसके चलते अभिभावकों में उलझन हैं। इसके चलते ऑनलाइन ऐडमिशन का पहला दिन ही अभिभावकों के लिए परेशानी भरा रहा। गौरतलब है कि RTE को लेकर बीएमसी और शिक्षण विभाग में अनबन चल रही है। इस वजह से RTE के मुद्दे पर दोनों विभाग एक दूसरे पर लापरवाही का आरोप लगाते हुए आधिकारिक बयान से देने से कन्नी काट रहे हैं। 8 हजार सीटें के लिए 30 अप्रैल तक आवेदन किया जा सकता है। इस बाबत अनुदानित शिक्षा बचाव समिति के अध्यक्ष एस. एम. परांजपे द्वारा बीएमसी शिक्षणाधिकारी शुभांगी जोग से मुलाकात करने की बात समिति ने कही है।

SC seeks response of Centre, states on violation of Right to Education Act

SC seeks response of Centre, states on violation of Right to Education Act



RIGHT TO EDUCATION ACT / TEACHER ELIGIBILITY TEST INDIA / NCTE GUIDELINES


Petition asked the states and the UTs to recruit and train one lakh additional professionally trained teachers every month.
   

The PIL, filed by the National Coalition for Education — a network of organisations fighting for the RTE — said at least 1.5 lakh schools and 12 lakh trained teachers were required to fulfill the goals envisaged under the RTE.

 It sought a direction that "the states and UTs upgrade all deficient schools with appropriate physical infrastructure so as to be in compliance with the RTE Act within six months.

"The states and UTs regularise and make permanent all contract and para-teachers in the country," it said. The petition also said the states and UTs should disclose the number of students admitted under the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) quota in the state in accordance with the provisions of the Act. 






 
A bench headed by Chief Justice P Sathasivam issued notice and sought their response after summer vacation on a plea filed by an organisation, National Coalition for Education.
  
The plea said lack of resources and failure to implement provisions of the RTE Act has resulted in a significant decline in education performance.
  
Senior advocate Colin Gonsalves sought a direction to all the states to complete the required neighbourhood mapping within six months and new schools be constructed six months after completion of the process.
  
The petition asked the states and UTs to recruit and train one lakh additional professionally trained teachers to end the shortage of educators within a year.
  
It sought a direction that "the states and UTs upgrade all deficient schools with appropriate physical infrastructure so as to be in compliance with the RTE Act within six months.
  
"The states and UTs regularise and make permanent all contract and para-teachers in the country," it said.
  
The petition also said the states and UTs should disclose the number of students admitted under the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) quota in the state in accordance with the provisions of the Act.
  
"Based on the aforementioned facts, it is clear that the Right to Education is being violated across the country. These violations have persisted for years and remain today in face of the RTE Act's requirement that they be remedied within three years of it coming into force.
  
"And more troubling, they persist despite widespread awareness of their existence by various responsible governments and authorities and in the face of previous orders from this court on October 3, 2012 to remedy them," it said

याचिकाकर्ता ने लगाया है शिक्षा का अधिकार कानून के उल्लंघन का आरोप 

नई दिल्ली (ब्यूरो)। देशभर के स्कूलों में शिक्षकों और संसाधनों की कमी के चलते शिक्षा के अधिकार कानून (आरटीई) के उल्लंघन के आरोप पर सुप्रीम कोर्ट ने शुक्रवार को केंद्र व सभी राज्य सरकारों से जवाब तलब किया। सर्वोच्च अदालत में दायर याचिका में इस कानून पर सही तरीके से अमल कराने के लिए सरकारों को निर्देश जारी करने की मांग की गई है।
चीफ जस्टिस पी. सदाशिवम की अध्यक्षता वाली पीठ ने केंद्र, राज्य व केंद्र शासित प्रदेशों को नोटिस जारी कर ग्रीष्मावकाश के बाद जवाब दाखिल करने को कहा है। याचिका नेशनल कोलीशन फॉर एजुकेशन संगठन ने दायर की है। याचिका में कहा गया है कि संसाधनों की कमी और आरटीई के प्रावधानों को लागू करने में विफलता के कारण शिक्षा के क्षेत्र में काफी गिरावट आई है। पीठ के समक्ष वरिष्ठ अधिवक्ता कोलिन गोंसाविस ने सभी राज्यों को छह महीने के भीतर दूर-दराज के इलाकों का अध्ययन करने का निर्देश जारी करने का आग्रह किया। साथ ही कहा कि यह प्रक्रि या पूरी होने के बाद छह महीने के लिए नये स्कूलों का निर्माण होना चाहिए।
