A Positive Signal: A Better Future
When you move to
Delhi roads you can easily notice many
children begging with their parents. It is a bare fact we all come across
everywhere in the country which is very sad too. These children do not go to
school; they do not enjoy two meals a day like other children. Most of the
public take a look at them once and move forward. But these children stays
there and their hope for a better future too.
Though literacy rate in
India improved significantly over the last
one decade but we have a long way to go. Over the years after liberalization
and privatization Indian economy has shown remarkable growth signs but at the
same time it has been noticed that poor have become poorer and rich people have
become richer. That means a great divide is building slowly in the country. To
check this we need to improve some aspects at the grass root level and one of
those things are inclusive education.
Every child has the right to study and government must facilitate this. Supreme court recently uphold the Right to Education Act, 2009 which says provision for 25 per cent free seats to the poor students in all schools except unaided minority schools across the country. This is the biggest positive and remarkable sign for inclusive education till date. This step will hopefully remove those barriers which a child from a poor family face while seeking admission.
