Right To Education

Law and Government are both an essential part of the structure and functioning of a country. They determine how a country lives, follows the rules, abides by their decisions and the way they respond to a crisis with unity. There is a lot of confusion among folks regarding both the topics but itis easy to understand with proper context.


Laws are standards set by the government that a citizen must abided by and cannot break. Breaking it can lead to punishment on sever counts.  Today we will learn about a fundamental law that is the right to education.

Right To Education


The Constitution’s Eighty-Sixth Amendment Act in 2002 introduced Article 21 A. It claimed that education is essential for children and should be regarded as a fundamental right. The exact words were that ” the State shall provide free and compulsory education to all children of the age of six to fourteen years in such manner as the State may, by law, determine.” The right to free and compulsory education act followed this, introduced a decade ago in 2009.


The constitutional amendment and the act passed both came into fruition on the date of April 1, 2010. The amendment specified that every child between the ages of six and fourteen should have compulsory education in their neighbourhood educational institution, including low-completion and disadvantaged children. The act also states that the provisions be made for non-admitted children to be admitted into the class.


It also” specifies the duties and responsibilities of appropriate Governments, local authority and parents in providing free and compulsory education, and sharing of financial and other responsibilities between the Central and State Governments.” This allows the children to get a necessary educational degree to kickstart their careers without their parents going bankrupt to teach their kids.


For low casts and tribes, it is given under 12 section C of the RTE Act, that 25% of the seats should always be reserved for scheduled casts and scheduled trie children in unaided and private schools. Thus, the constitution makes a law that both the government and the parents have to uphold, providing an education that does not stop by a parental obstruction, cost cuts, and state’s inactivity.


Thus, the child’s fundamental right is protected and ensured by the law and the government. The ground is set by the law and is followed by the parent’s child and the government. This is an essential law regarding the future of the country and its citizens.



Thus, the right to education implements both the government and the law to carry out what is best for the child’s future, determining their career path. The education will help the child nurture themselves and find the best outcome for themselves.

It will get them a job that is well paying and change the generational outcome that has led to poverty due to unfortunate decisions and lack of education. We hope you understood more about the right to education through this article. Hope you have a great day!
