EEBill

THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA, COMMITTED TO THE UNIVERSALISATION OF EDUCATION THROUGH A DIRECTIVE PRINCIPLE, WAS AMENDED TO MAKE FREE AND COMPULSORY SCHOOL EDUCATION A RIGHT. THE AMENDMENT REQUIRES A LAW TO BE ENACTED — DRAFT BILL FOR WHICH WAS PREPARED AND TWICE MODIFIED IN 2003. IN THE DISCOURSE ABOUT THE DRAFT BILL, AS WELL AS IN RECENT PIL ON FREE SEATS FOR THE POOR, CONCERN FOR A COMMON SCHOOL SYSTEM HAS BEEN AMPLY REITERATED. BUT, HOLISTIC SOLUTIONS SUGGESTED IN EXISTING LAW, SUCH AS IN THE EQUAL ACCESS NEIGHBOURHOOD SCHOOL PROVISIONS OF DELHI MASTER PLAN, ALTHOUGH BEING SOUGHT BY COMMUNITIES, CONTINUE TO BE DISREGARDED IN THE DISCOURSE. THIS LIST IS FOR DISCUSSION PREMISED ON ALREADY EXISTING LAW, SO THAT THE PROPOSED EDUCATION LAW IMPROVES UPON THEM.
