The Right to Education Act of 2009, also known as the RTE Act 2009, stands as a pivotal legislation for the welfare of children. Enacted by the Parliament on 4th August 2009, this Act underscores the importance of education, establishing it as a fundamental and compulsory right for children between the ages of 6 and 14. Free education is not just encouraged but mandated, recognized as a fundamental right under Article 21A of the Indian Constitution of 1949. However, despite its noble objectives, certain issues have emerged in the implementation of this Act, revealing shortcomings in both its policies and regulations. Some areas fall short in fulfilling the Act's intended purpose, pointing to a need for more effective execution. Additionally, inherent problems within the Act itself contribute to these challenges. While the RTE Act contains numerous rules and policies, there remains a gap between its intended goals and the actual outcomes. This gap calls for attention from both the government and the Parliament, urging them to address these issues, make necessary amendments, and ensure that the Act achieves its envisioned impact on the education landscape in India.
