Views: 600

The school education department of Chhattisgarh has taken up the initiative to provide free and compulsory admission to poor children on the 25 per cent seats reserved for them. This step is an initiative to implement Right to Education (RTE) in Chhattisgarh, in which every school is instructed to keep seats vacant under the RTE Act till end of August and for the new session.

Having a population of 3,860 financially poor students, Raipur has recorded the highest number of admission in Chhattisgarh under RTE in 2012-2013. District education officer Ashok Banjara stated that the department has circulated instructions to all private schools to keep seats under the RTE Act vacant till August 24.

All the 170 nodal schools are asked to keep the details ready about reservation of seats for different categories of students like differently abled, poor, SC and ST children, etc in order to avoid confusion among people.

Few private schools tried violating the RTE norms by refusing admissions to poor students stating that the school’s ambience would be affected. But, few cases that reached high court were given admission in preferred schools.
