Project 21(A)
Right to education

Article 21(A) of the Indian Constitution provides for free and compulsory education of all children in the age group of 6 to 14 years as a Fundamental Right in such manner as the State may, by law, determine. 

 

Various reports by think tanks and research groups have highlighted the non-implementation of certain key provisions of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009. Further, according to a UNESCO report of September 2016, “India will be half a century late in achieving its universal education goals.”. Thus, it becomes the need of the hour to work on the implementation of this act which lies at the heart of education policies in India.
