The right of Children to free and compulsory Education Right To Education Act, 2009, provides 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. No child shall be liable to pay any kind of fee or charges or expenses which may prevent him or her from pursuing and completing the Elementary Education. The scheme lays down, interalia, norms and standards for infrastructure, Primary Teachers Resources for the primary and  upper primary stage of education and academic responsibilities of teachers. It also lays down principles for the teaching learning process – that teaching should be activity based and child centred, based on constitutional values, and that classroom transaction should not instill trauma, fear and anxiety in children. The scheme/act envisages  to improve the present delivery system of elementary education by, inter alia, greater decentralization of its management, and making it sensitive to the needs of children, especially of those belonging to disadvantaged groups.

This is a major initiative taken up by MHRD for elementary education,  EdCIL Technical Support Group for SSA is extending peripheral and logistic support for achieving the objectives of the scheme.
