Read:-RTE Act No. 35 of 2009
All the Regional Joint Directors of School Education and District Educational Officers in the State are informed that under Right to Education (RTE) Act Right to Education is accorded the same legal status as the Right hs7iife a provided by Article 21 (a) of Indian Constitution. Every child in age group of 6 to 14 years shall be provided up to 8 years of Elementary Education on admission to an age appropriate class in the vicinity of his j her neighbourhood.
It is further informed that there is a declining trend in Government schools' enrolment over the years. This is resulting in closing of zero enrolment schools, merging/ consolidation of non-viable schools with neighbouring schools during the rationalization process. Multi-grade teaching becomes inevitable when the enrolment does not justify allocation of full complement of teachers. Further, continuous efforts to identify Out of School Children (OoSC) needs to be made to ensure that all children are enrolled in schools.
In the above context, it is proposed to take up a special campaign "Mana Vooru -Mana Badi" to complete the Admissions for academic year 2019-20 in all Government/Mandal Parishad jZilla Parishad Schools from 23rd April to 30th April 2019.
