Human Resource Development Minister, Kapil Sibal, while addressing the valedictory session of the Conference of State School Education Secretaries, described the role of the Government Schools system in the implementation of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act (RTE). He explained that 93% of our children are studying in government schools.

He mentioned about a software that has been prepared to support transparent recruitment of teachers and underlined the need for a transparent teacher transfer policy, emphasising that the role of the teacher, of the school and of the government must be to ensure thateducation is child centric. The minister called upon states to come forward and implement the RTE with enthusiasm. He pointed out that the centre had allocated additional funds for the states and made the sharing pattern in a ratio on 65:35 for five years. He also called upon the States to work towards appropriate teacher qualifications and infrastructure norms as mandated by the RTE.
