Right To Education Act (RTE)
« on: June 26, 2011, 07:29:32 PM »
जल्द होगा लागू ''  '"शिक्षा के अधिकार का कानून''  '
होशियारपुर, 25 जून (निस)। राइट टू एजुकेशन एक्ट वर्ष 2013 से पहले लागू कर दिया जाएगा। इससे लागू होते ही केंद्र से मिलने वाली ग्रांटों का रास्ता साफ हो जायेगा। इस संबंधी केंद्र सरकार को आश्वासन दे दिया गया है।
यह जानकारी पंजाब के शिक्षा मंत्री सेवा सिंह सेखवां ने शनिवार सायं स्थानीय लोक निर्माण विभाग के विश्रामग्रह में पत्रकारवार्ता को संबोधित करते हुए दी। एक अन्य सवाल का जवाब देते हुए उन्होंने कहा कि पंजाब के सहायता प्राप्त स्कूलों में अध्यापकों को पिछले समय से रूका हुआ वेतन जारी कर दिया गया है और सेवानिवृत्त हुए करीब 8 हजार अध्यापकों को वर्ष 2003 से पेंशन देने के लिए सरकार ने 287 करोड़ रुपए प्रावधान किया है। हालांकि यह पैंशन 5 किस्तों में दी जाएगी। पहले किस्त के करीब 58 करोड़ रुपए जारी कर दिए गए हैं। उन्होंने कहा कि राज्य की लड़कियों को उच्च शिक्षा के लिए सरकारी स्कूलों की ओर अग्रसर करने के लिए पंजाब सरकार 3 किलोमीटर तक जाने वाली जमा 1 और जमा 2 की लड़कियों को मुफ्त साइकिल प्रदान करेगी।
पंजाब में करीब सवा लाख लड़कियों उक्त कक्षाओं में शिक्षा ग्रहण कर रही हैं। पेपर लीक होने के बाद मुअत्त्तल किये गए तीन अधिकारियों संबंधी पूछे गए सवाल संबंधी उन्होंने अपनी प्रतिक्रिया प्रकट करते हुए कहा कि उक्त प्रकरण के बाद पीसीएस के नेतृत्व में एक टीम को नियुक्त किया था, जिसकी रिपोर्ट आने के बाद ही उन्हें मुअत्तल किया गया है। अब उक्त अधिकारी बेतुक ही ब्यानबाजी कर रहे है जबकि इससे पहले उन्हें चेतावनी दी जा चुकी थी।
उन्होंने कहा कि एलीमेंटरी स्कूलों में रिक्त पड़े करीब छह हजार पदो को भरने के लिए जिला परिषदों को लिख दिया गया है उनकी प्रक्रिया पूरी होते ही उक्त पद भर दिये जाएंगे। उन्होंने कहा कि करीब 1500 लैक्चरारों को पदोन्नत कर दिया गया है लेकिन मामला हाईकोर्ट में होने के कारण रूका पड़ा है। करीब 4500  मुख्य अध्यापकों को पदोन्नत करने का कार्य भी तेजी से चल रहा है। करीब 800 मुख्याध्यापकों का जो पिछले तीन साल से विदेशों में का वेतन रोक दिया गया है और इस संबंधी जिले के शिक्षा अधिकारियों ने पंजाब सरकार को लिख कर दिया है कि उक्त अध्यापक पिछले तीन सालों से वेतन नहीं ले रहे। इसके बाद जो योग्यता के आधार पर आगे आता है उसे पदोन्नत कर दिया जाएगा।
एक अन्य सवाल के जवाब में उन्होंने कहा कि शिक्षा विभाग में इस समय लैक्चरारों की बहुत ही कमी खल रही है, जिसे दूर करने के लिए कार्य शुरू कर दिया गया है। उन्होंने कहा कि गांव स्तर तक  के स्कूलों में लाईब्रेरी खोलने के लिए लाइब्रेरी एक्ट आया जा रहा है। इस संबंधी तैयारी अंतिम चरण में इसे शीघ्र ही पंजाब कैबिनेट से मंजूरी दे दी जायेगी। उन्होंने कहा कि जब ग्रामीण स्तर के स्कूलों में भी लाईब्रेरी सेवा उपलब्ध होगी तो संबंधी इलाके के नौजवान इस ओर अग्रसर होंगे और नशों से बच जाएं

All India Helpline for admission of poor children

January 03, 2012

New Delhi: To facilitate admission of disadvantaged and economically weaker sections in private schools as per the free and compulsory education Act 2009, a non-government organization Social Jurist has opened an all-India helpline.

Any individual from any part across the nation can access totally free legal assistance through helpline numbers - 9868529459, 8826456565 between 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on all days except Sundays or one can write to Mr. Ashok Aggarwal, Advisor Social Jurist, 478-479, Lawyers Chambers, Western Wing, Tis Hazari Courts, Delhi-110054. Alternatively, email at Juristashok@gmail.com.

According to the Right to Education (RTE) Act, which came into force from April 1, 2010, 25% seats are reserved for EWS candidates in all private unaided schools. However, private schools in several States and Union Territories have not implemented this provision at all, and the respective governments have not taken any action against schools that are not fulfilling their obligations.

Realizing that poor sections are not benefiting from the government scheme, Social Jurist decided to help those anticipating admission to private schools. Ashok Agarwal, Social Jurist Advocate advisor said that they not only want to highlight the issue but also help students from these groups to get admission.

Social Activists, civil society bodies, non-government organizations, parents' bodies, and professionals like lawyers have a role in getting these provisions implemented. Lawyers associated with Social Jurist have previous experience of EWS admissions in Delhi relating to unaided schools on public lands since 2004-05. As a result, now there is more willingness and expertise amongst the lawyers to get the RTE Act provision implemented for the benefit of all.

Annual Status of Education Report 2011
Families across rural India ignoring RTE
Aditi Tandon/TNS

New Delhi, January 17
The grim tale of India''  's school education has got grimmer, with new evidence surfacing to show that families across rural India have been ignoring the guaranteed Right to Education to seek private paid education.

Though a whopping 96.8 per cent children aged 6 to 14 years (the age group the RTE Act covers) are now enrolled in school, children''  's attendance is declining and so is their ability to read simple text and do simple mathematical calculations.

Almost half (48.1 per cent) of India''  's rural primary school students are either attending private schools or seeking paid tuition. Across the nation, private school enrolment for children aged 6 to 14 years rose from 18.7 per cent in 2006 to 25.6 per cent in 2011.

The findings are part of the much-awaited Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) 2011 released by Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal.

The survey, which covered 6.5 lakh children in 16,000 villages of 558 districts, found that one in every four rural children was attending private schools. In Kerala and Manipur, over 60 per cent children go to private schools. The percentage of students going to private schools is 71.1 for Manipur; 39.6 for Punjab, 43.4 for Haryana, 37.7 for Jammu and Kashmir and 29.6 for Himachal.

In UP, 45 per cent students were found to be going to private schools in 2011 as against 22 per cent in 2005. In Tamil Nadu, 35 per cent are attending private schools as against 16 per cent in 2005. And the percentage of students seeking paid tuitions is rising. The figure was 22.5 in 2010 and is 23.3 per cent today.

''  '"RTE Act requires all private schools to have basic minimum infrastructure to exist. The issue is whether the government will close down these private schools if they fail to comply with RTE. And if it will, how it would ensure that parents send their wards to government schools for free education at a time when parents are increasingly choosing to seek education privately,''  ' Madhav Chavan, founder member, Pratham, which conducts ASER, told TNS.

Sibal blamed the states for the rot and said it was too early to judge the RTE Act. ''  '"The problem is with the states which prescribe such difficult textbooks that children are unable to cope up and seek tuitions. Also, the RTE Act is work in progress. Its impact will be visible in six years. Even after 18 months of notification, several states haven''  't notified rules. What can the Centre do?''  ' he wondered.

The ASER report further found levels of reading abilities to have declined in several states. Except in Punjab, Gujarat and Tamil Nadu, reading abilities declined pan India, where the percentage of fifth graders able to read Class II text dropped across the nation from 53.7 per cent in 2010 to 48.2 per cent in 2011. Except in Himachal, Standard III children showed decline in ability to read Class I text across India.

In arithmetic, the situation is worse. As for the nation, the percentage of Class III graders who can do two-digit subtractions with borrowing dropped from 36.3 per cent in 2010 to 29.9 per cent in 2011. The decline was seen everywhere except in Andhra, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, where the situation improved. The percentage of Class V children who can solve subtraction problems declined from 70.9 in 2010 to 61 this year.

''  '"In a year dedicated to math, this is a heartbreaking statistic,''  ' Rukmini Banerjee of Pratham said.

Major Findings

    Private school enrolment rising; reading and arithmetic abilities declining
    1 in 5 primary graders in rural India seeking tuitions; 1 in 4 attending private school
    Reading ability: Percentage of Class V students who can read Class II text down from 53.7 in 2010 to 48.2 in 2011
    Subtraction ability: Class III students who can do subtraction down from 36.3% in 2010 to 29.9% in 2011
    Children's attendance declines from 73.7% in 2007 to 70.9% in 2011

RTE compliance

    A majority of students were found to be attending classes not appropriate for their age-group or education level
    Only 40% comply with pupil-teacher ratio norm
    75% comply with teacher-classroom norm

RTE: Sibal says time to focus on improving quality
Last Updated: Saturday, March 31, 2012, 19:37
 

Tags: RTE, Kapil Sibal, Sarva Sikshya Abhiyan
New Delhi: With two years into the RTE and 32 states having notified the rules, government on Saturday said they should now also focus on strict implementation of provisions against corporal punishment and detention and initiate curricular reforms.

HRD Minister Kapil Sibal asserted that improving quality is critical if the objective of the Right to Education (RTE) is to be fulfilled even as he noted a decline in dropout rates in states like Bihar where it has come down to about seven per cent following RTE.

"We have issued advisory to the state education ministers to initiate curriculum reforms as it is a matter of concern that not much attention is being paid to improve quality," the Minister told reporters here.

He said more than 31 states have notified academic authority as per RTE provisions which would look into the curriculum reforms process.

While RTE has seen an increased allocation of Rs 25,000 crore for the 2012-13 fiscal, up from Rs 13,000 crore, Sibal said the states should take steps to hasten the process of teachers appointment as the Centre has already sanctioned six lakh posts.

He said as against mandated teacher student ratio of 30:1, 43 per cent primary schools have over 40 children per one teacher.

With 4.96 lakh classrooms having been sanctioned under Sarva Sikshya Abhiyan which is being aligned with RTE, Sibal asked the state to put "all RTE provisions into practice in schools including prohibition of corporal punishment, detention and expulsion".

2 yrs after RTE, dropouts fall but shortage of teachers

Two years after the Right to Education Act came into effect, the annual average dropout rate at the primary level is down from 9.1 in 2009-10 to 6.9 in 2010-11, over 4.96 lakh classrooms and 6 lakh teachers posts have been added and the Centre's outlay for the RTE-Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan has risen from Rs 13,100 crore in 2009-10 to Rs 25,555 crore in 2012-13.

However, the percentage of girls' enrollment to total enrollment remains stagnant at 48 per cent, while the percentage of SC/ST enrollment to total enrollment has also not shown much change. While in the case of SCs, this has actually fallen from 20 per cent to 19 per cent between 2009-10 and 2010-11, in case of STs, it showed no change from 11 per cent.

Infrastructure facilities available in schools remain almost the same, while there is still need to hire more and better qualified teachers.

The RTE Act came into effect on April 1, 2010, and promises free and compulsory education to all between the ages of six and 14. Releasing a review of the implementation of the Act by the Union Human Resource Development Ministry here today, Kapil Sibal said that while there was overall improvement in enrollment indicators, a 10-point agenda devised by his ministry needs to be implemented to see visible changes. '  "The effects of the RTE Act will only be felt once these are implemented'   , Sibal said.


The 10-point agenda
States mapping neighbourhood schools to enable access to all children, implementing child-centric provisions such as prohibition of corporal punishment, detention and expulsion, besides ensuring admission to children from disadvantaged sections. Teacher-centric provisions of the Act also need to be enforced, including maintaining an optimum pupil-teacher ratio, barring teachers from non-academic duties and recruitment of teachers based on their performance in the Teachers' Eligibility Test besides school curricular reforms, teacher training modules, and better school infrastructure. The agenda also stresses on a grievance-redressal mechanism.
