NCPCR to Kerala: give admission to children from the EWS section to private schools

KERALA: The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has recently asked the Kerala government to implement the Right to Education (RTE) Act of providing admission to children from disadvantaged or economically weaker sections in private schools.

On Friday, NCPCR chairperson Priyank Kanoongo wrote a letter to Kerala’s chief secretary and said non-implementation of any provision given under the RTE act 2009, by authorities not only amounts to a violation but also fundamental rights of children given by the Constitution of India. “The provision of providing admission to children from disadvantaged and-or economically weaker sections in private schools as per section 12 (1) (c) of the RTE Act, 2009 is yet to be implemented in your State,” he said in the letter.

Section 12 (1) (c) of the act mandated the reservation of a minimum of 25 per cent of the seats at the entry-level class for children belonging to economically weaker sections (EWS) and disadvantaged groups in private unaided schools. The NCPCR has sought a response from the state government within 30 days.

“They have made two categories that rich students go to private schools and poor children go to government schools. The most capitalist model of education exists in Kerala that is why we have asked to implement that provision,” he charged.

He also said that It’s been 12 years since the RTE was executed but still, Kerala has not implemented the provision.
