Jammu and Kashmir State Government has decided to bring about amendment/augmentation in the J&K School Education Act 2002 so as to bring it at par with the Central RTE (The Right to Children to Free and Compulsory Education) Act-2009.
This was stated by the Minister of Higher Education, Mohammad Akbar Lone in the 62nd meeting of Central Advisory Board of Education held in New Delhi Thursday.
Owing to the difficult topographical conditions and backwardness of the State, the Minister sought revision in the funding pattern to the tune of 90:10 for the State under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) and Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA), presently shared at the ratio of 65:35 & 75: 25 respectively. The same was in principle agreed by the Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) during the meeting.
