Has RTE( Right to Education) in India become the right to schooling only and not to learning and education?
Putting a question mark on government policies and the implementation of Right to Education Act, the Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) 2012 has found that learning levels have dipped to an all-time low. Pratham's (a NGO Foundation) CEO-President Madhav Chavan said," RTE has become the right to schooling and not to learning and education. Pratham's Madhav Chavan said, "Measures the government is taking are not working and since 2012, things are moving in the opposite direction." Discontented with government provided education , parents are turning towards private schooling with a vengeance.Does this indicate a growing distrust of the common man against state-run schools in the country?
