Education is fundamental right

Dear Editor,

Education is the most potent mechanism for the advancement of human beings. It enlarges, enriches and develops the personality of an individual in a society. A man without education is no less than an animal. Education gives wings to an individual.

The Right to Education also includes responsibility to provide basic education for individuals who have not completed their primary education. In addition to these, access to education provisions, the right to education encompasses obligation to rule out discrimination at all levels of the educational system, to set minimum standards and to improve the quality of education.

The government came out with a framework of 4 As which are Availability, Accessibility, Acceptability and Adaptability. Despite, these provisions there are some children who are deprived from their basic rights. Though government has provided a provision that a free and basic education should be provided to the children from the age group of 6 to 14 still the parents of some children are not letting them study and force them to work on the sites as they are the cheapest labourers available.
