RTE Portal launched by School Choice Campaign

The portal will enable a coalition of educational organisations, NGOs, government bodies etc. to join us in building the portal. The idea is to monitor the RTE process on national, state and civil society levels. Forum discussions, news alerts, local social audit experiences, community concerns – all aspects of the RTE will be covered in the portal.

The Right to Education Bill has been debated, discussed and deliberated by various Government commissioned bodies since 2002 (National Advisory Council, National Knowledge Commission, Central Advisory Board for Education), Standing Committee for Human Resource Development and civil society organisations (including Azim Premji Foundation, Confederation of Indian Industry and Centre for Civil Society). Numerous educationists, community leaders and commentators have also presented their views on the Right to Education Bill in the media. This website tracks the evolution of discourse around the Right to Education Bill, broadly divided in to three thematic areas:
