After 8th Class, RTE students can’t be expelled from school: Right to Education [Free Education from 1 to 8] Act

Right to Education RTE Act: Schools are ordered to not issue school leaving certificates forcefully to the students after completing the 8 classes under the RTE act. The government is ensuring free and accessible education from class 1 to class 8 to all students in India through the Right to Education RTE Act. the RTE Act has also allowed parents to enroll their children in private schools without paying the fees through RTE 25% reservation for EWS students. Now schools are ordered to not issue unnecessary school leaving certificates to the students or parents after completing the 8 classes under this RTE act.

Schools will not forcibly discontinue admission of the students

Private schools are bound to enroll at least 25% of students in their schools who can access education without paying the fees under the RTE Act. But they are providing free education from class 1 to class 8. After completing class 8, parents have to pay the same school fees monthly. The government has received multiple applications from social authorities in the state about forcibly issuing school leaving certificates to the students who have completed their 8th class in their school. After that, the school education department released a circular to all the schools in the state and listed guidelines for not canceling the admission of students immediately after completing the eighth class under the RTE 25% reservation scheme. 

Circular on implementation of RTE Act

The department has pointed out the issue of removing students from the school after completing the 8th class. The circular has said that school should not remove their students who are getting free education from the RTE 25% reservation scheme in their respective schools. However, instead of discontinuing the admission of these students, schools are advised to talk with parents, if parents agree to pay the school fees per month and students also want to study in the same school after completing the 8th class, then they should not cancel or issue school leaving certificate to the student as it will impact negatively on the student’s mind.

Amendment in RTE Act 2009

The Right to Education RTE Act is aimed at providing free and compulsory education to all children in India. The recent amendment states that unsubsidized English medium schools will not be eligible for RTE admissions if there is a government or subsidized school within one kilometer. This means that children might not be able to get RTE admissions in English medium schools if there are government schools nearby.

Additionally, the RTE Act only provides fee reimbursement to schools up to Class 8. After Class 8, students may have to find another school, which could be a challenge for them and their families. These amendments have caused concern and anger among parents, as they may limit access to quality education for some children and create uncertainties regarding their educational journey beyond Class 8.

Authorities will ensure the implementation of RTE

All the schools in India including state government schools, Central Government schools, government-aided schools, and private schools are following RTI Act 2009 and providing admission to students who belong to economically weaker sections and providing free of cost education from class 1 to class 8. There are a total of 25% of seats reserved in schools for EWS students, and they are not asked to submit any type of fees to the schools till class 8.

The scheme was introduced to increase enrollment in schools and provide basic education to all students from age 6 to 14. Apart from this, Government and local bodies are also providing mid-day meals to these students under the scheme in Government schools. The National Education Policy 2020 also promotes the implementation of the Right to Education Act and has not changed the free and equal education up to class 8. However, some schools were canceling the admission of the students but after getting multiple applications and protests from Maharashtra Navnirman Sena, the Department of Education is reaching out to these schools and uploaded a circular on this misbehavior of schools with their students.
