During the interactions with students, the teams also spoke on the differential aspects of The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act, 2009 and how they can get benefit out of it.
The outcome of the research with regard to the comparative study of implementation of RTE is that the Government must put their prime focus on the transparency of the selection of students in schools under the RTE Act as the powerful or the privileged take advantage of this facility and get their children admitted by wrong means instead of the poor students for whom the opportunity was originally provided. There is a need to make sure to make the schools and general public aware of the Act and its provisions and lastly initiatives must be taken to upgrade the infrastructure facilities of the government aided schools.
This project sensitized our own students regarding rights of underprivileged at the same time young budding lawyers contributed their mite in bringing awareness regarding the Right to Free and Compulsory Education of the children between the age of 6 to 14 years.
