    While applications for the RTE quota admissions will begin from February 23, officials said that there would be considerably fewer seats this year as many schools had dropped out of the programme
    Spelling an end to a long wait by anxious parents, the state education department has finally revealed that the process for quota admissions under the Right to Education (RTE) Act for the academic year 2015-16 will begin from next week.
    Activists, students and parents have protested several times in the past, over uncertainties in the RTE admission quota. File pic for representation
    Parents and students will be less pleased, however, to learn that their chances for a good admission have become even slimmer this year, with several schools dropping out of the RTE programme. While parents can begin applying for admissions from February 23, schools began registering online on February 16.
    But only 280 schools registered this year, compared to 315 schools last year. Officials said that in less than a year, 35 schools sought and were granted minority status. According to an April 2012 Supreme Court order, unaided minority schools are exempted from reserving 25 per cent of their seats at entry level admissions for children from the socially and economically backward classes of the society.
    This will cause the number seats available under RTE to drop drastically, BMC education inspector Shambhavi Jogi pointed out. We will find out the total number of seats available for admission this year within a day and release it to the public for their benefit. All 24 of our admission centers are already functional and parents can approach any of these centers for help,” she added.
    While parents are largely unaware of this development, activists are upset that the government is approving minority status for schools even though it means worse odds for students. “The fact that minority schools are exempted from RTE is a huge loss to students because the best of the schools in the country are minority schools. I won’t be surprised if by next year another 50-odd schools get minority status.
    Then there will be no minority schools left and the government can stop fooling people,” said Jayant Jain, president of Forum for Fairness in Education (FFE). Many were also angry over minimal advertising for the RTE admissions the second year in a row. “Last year, parents were not aware about the admissions process at all, therefore many children were left out of the system.
    This year, too, we are facing the same problem. Once again admissions are getting delayed and we dread that students will be left without seats, again,” said K Narayan, from the NGO Anudanit Shiksha Bachao Samiti, which helps parents with admission under the RTE quota.
    Details awaited
    While the BMC education department has started the admissions process, they are still waiting for the state education department to release the full schedule.
    “As of now we only know that parents can start applying after February 23, but we have no idea about when the process ends or when the first round of admissions will take place. We are hoping to get the full schedule soon,” said BMC education inspector Shambhavi Jogi.

    Due to introduction of RTE by the great Mr.Zero Sibal, thousands of schools have had to close down.

    Just google and you will be shocked by the result.

    Rajasthan Govt. is trying to to bypass RTE to avoid this situation.

    Same in WB also. They are bypassing the law or simply not imposing it on schools.

    AFAIK Govt schools provide free modern education with incentives (free meal,uniform etc).But these foolish mullas with their stone age book only produce drivers/cleaners.

    2.Don't ban these madrassa,if we stop funds to these madrassas those arab sheiks divert funds to terrorist org.So let them suffer with their stone age book.We will get cheap labor

    Note:Mostly educated muslims are more prone to terrorism than Madrassa kids.

    Let me give you an example of Kerala,

    Close 80% of the Schools in the Kerala in the Private (CBSE, ICSE, IGSCE, Kerala Curriculum) and Government aided ( Kerala Curriculum)sector are minority run, They are better funded and have a better structures also because of their experience with running schools.

    So if minorities are exempted from RTE, what good is it in Kerala, and also is it fair to have additional burden on these not so very well funded Hindu or Secular schools to give 25% free all the while minorities dont have to? So guess who will be closing down?

    Also, When the government says it will reimburse the amount of money spend on 25% free seats according to State per child expenditure, it also means government takes defacto control of these schools, therefore these schools will also loose control, therefore control, therefore admissions, therefore they will shut down.

    Minorities insitutiuons are also being expemt from ESI and other such expenses , while majority schools have to adhere to it.

    Since Education falls in concurrent list, the state and central government has control over it. There is no way any Kerala government will let anything good happen to Education sector, though it has to be said RTE is the complete creation of Central Government led by UPA, what is Smriti Irani doing?

    So RTE is not a socialist legislation then:rolleyes:

    So I get that you are a propagnadist and not someone who is actually interested in knowing if socialism is good or bad. Good to know.

    RTE is a socialist policy, but the problem here has more to do with mixing religion with politics.

    This is vote bank politics.

    Ok. For now I will give you the benefit of the doubt. I thought that you had read the whole thread. I was actually talking about post no#9 by @sasi

    What is your response to that?

    @Mad Indian
    I went through the article link provided by @sasi
    I agree with everything the author says except the part of dumping it. I think the problem as per the author says is implementation and ignoring the root causes of the problems. Also, the demands of the act are too much to be addressable today.
    The solution would be dilution of the act and making it acceptable and universally applicable. Dumping it would send a wrong message. Right to Education should be there, at-least in principle.
    And I don't think minority schools should be exempted, as it defeats the very spirit of the principle.
