Consulttaion with Parliamentrians

RTE Forum is a national level Network working towards implementation of the RTE work in collaboration with its state partnersacross 21 states. It is a nodal advocacy network of the RTE act in India which works with policy makers, ministries, teacher’s unions and parliamentarians among others for changing the grim ground reality of elementary education across the country barring a few states. The nation moved into enacting a law for quality and equitable elementary education for all and the Network was formed to make this law translate its provisions into implementation. Even after 6 years of its implementation there are various gaps which require to be plugged and on some aspects it has progressed tremendously. However the complete picture is grim as less than 10 percent schools are RTE compliant according to the stock taking report of the Forum. Dovetailed with these issues is another emerging concern regarding the document ‘Some Inputs for Draft new education policy’ which have further diluted the Act instead of weaving a policy to strengthen it by removing the deficiencies and showing a renewed commitment to actual implementation of the Act. This has brought forth the culpability of the state once again which require immediate action. The consultation with the parliamentarians was convened to address these issues and 50 parliamentarians were informed about the issues and invited for a cross party parliamentarian consultation on the 11 th August 2016 at the constitution Club in Delhi
