Reservation in Private Schools under the Right to Education Act: Model for Implementation
Publication: Center for Civil Society
Date: Wed, 2010-12-15
Section 12 of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009 (the Act) has made it compulsory for every private unaided school to admit at least 25% of its entry level class from children belonging to weaker and disadvantaged groups. For this category of students the state government will reimburse schools an amount equal to either the fees charged by the school or the per child expenditure in state schools, whichever is lower.
Through this document the Centre for Civil Society seeks to highlight the lacunae in the current framework for 25% reservation for weaker and disadvantaged groups in unaided private schools and seeks to provide inputs on effective implementation of the same.
