'RTE success banks on shoulders of the community'

Submit suggestions on the Act before September 30

  The larger share of responsibility lies on the shoulders of the community members, members of Gram Panchayat and Taluk Panchayat for the effective implementation of the Act, said Sulochana Kodavooru from Padi - Valored.

Speaking as the resource person in a seminar on Right to Education Act 2009 at Taluk Panchayat which was jointly organised by the District Adult Education Office and Padi - Valored, she said that the state government had recently published copy of the Act in Kannada to reach out to more number of public.

“Any citizen of our nation can read the Act and send suggestions and feedback to the Government to make amendments to the Act. The last date for the submission of suggestions and corrections is September 30,” she said and added that Padi has asked the government to bring out a set of rules in connection to holding back of primary school students.

In the inaugural address, former ZP President Sushma Janardhan said that introduction of the Act will be of no use if the public are not aware of the Act. In spite of all the rules and regulations, child labour is still dominant, which is indeed a huge threat to RTE.

All those who find children working in homes and construction units must report it to the authorities concerned, she said.Taluk Panchayat President Ramachandra Kumpala in his presidential address asked the public, educationists and NGO’s to join hands for the success of the Act.Taluk Panchayat EO Vishwanath Poojari, ZP member Victoria D’ Cunha, District Adult Education Officer Kodandram were present.
