The admission processes for admission in this category will begin only after the government resolution on the issue is released
Mumbai: The schedule for school admissions under the Right to Education (RTE) quota in the state will be revised, the State Education Department announced.
The Education Department will announce new admission schedule for schools after the government resolution on the RTE reservation clause is released, the Deputy Director of Schools has said in a statement.
Schools, which were supposed to start distributing admission forms from January 10, have been held back for at least a week.
The Education Inspectors of the state have also made it a point to explain about RTE and clear doubts of all the school principals related to the same.
During the past week, the school principals attended sessions on conducting admissions under the 25% RTE quota .
According to feedback from different schools, the admission forms have already been prepared and they will be released following government’s declaration of the new schedule.
The provision of RTE demands that “every child of the age of six to fourteen years shall have a right to free and compulsory education in a neighbourhood school till completion of elementary education.”
