Education for all-right to education is a fundamental right
Caroline Satur and Dr. Sunil Gouraha
Right to Education is a basic Human Right. It is sine qua non for the development of a human and only with the development of its subjects, a country develops. Constitution of India imposes the obligation on the government to provide education to the citizens. Right to education is included in the right to life enshrined in Article 21 of the Constitution of India which provides right to live with dignity and it is the education which brings-forth the dignity of a human. An individual cannot be assured of human dignity unless his personality is developed and the only way to do that is to educate him. The Constitutional Amendment Act, 1976 included the subject ‘Education’ in the Concurrent List of the VII Schedule of the Indian Constitution which enables the Union Government to make law on this subject. Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009 passed by the Indian Parliament on August 4, 2009, came into force from 1st April 2010. The Act promises to ensure education for all children between 6 and 14. The question which arises is, has the government succeeded in its motive by passing the Right to Education Act or has failed in providing right to education. There are a number of challenges to access free and compulsory education in India. The main purpose of this article is to point out the opportunities in providing education to all.
