The plea, filed by Centre for Civil Society, has alleged “Right to Education has been reduced to right to schooling”.

The Delhi High Court has sought AAP government’s reply to a plea challenging its new education reform plan ‘Chunauti 2018’ which seeks to check dropout rate of students and improve education quality with special focus on the weaker students.

Under ‘Chunauti 2018’ scheme, students would be mapped and the weaker students would be given “special focus” to enhance learning levels from classes 6 to 9.

A bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal also issued notices to all the three municipal corporations here and sought their stand on the plea which has demanded that ‘Chunauti 2018’ be extended to primary classes as well. The plea said the current scheme prescribes assessments and supplementary learning interventions only for children of classes 6 to 9.
