Haryana mulls RTE for p lus-2

The Haryana government on Wednesday said it is considering implementing the Right to Education Act at the plus-two level.

 According to Haryana education minister Geeta Bhukkal, her state was ahead of others in implementing the RTE Act and so it was considering to implement it at plus-two level also.

Her statement came in the backdrop of the HRD ministry contemplating to extend the deadline for executing the provisions of RTE, which comes to an end on March 31 next year, by another two years. The government may move necessary amendments in this regard.
The Act provides for free and compulsory education at the elementary level in neighbourhood schools.

Bhukkal was presiding over a meeting of the sub-committee of the Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) which deliberated on the contentious no-detention policy and continuous and comprehensive evaluation programme in schools.
