The Fundamental Right to Education


Education is a source of wealth. The only way knowledge is transferred in this world is by educating one another, and education does not only mean studying technology or various process. Education is simply the process of receiving or giving information, being educated is simply just being informed about something.

In India, it is a fundamental right of every person to get an education and hence the government has arranged for schools that provide free education to underprivileged children. The Right of Children to Free Education (RTE) Act, 2009 was created to provide compulsory education to all children between the ages of six and fourteen. This means that every child has a right to a full-time education that is satisfactory and equitable in quality with respect to a formal school.

There are various boards of education in the country of India, some being ICSE, ISC, various State Boards, CBSE, etc. These are boards that have been certified by the government of India verifying that they provide a legitimate mode of education to all students of India. One of the various state boards is the JK board that has educated a lot of students in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. This state is prone to a lot of military activity and chaos, but the JK board is trying its best to educate the students to its fullest capacity. Recently, the JKBose 12th admit card was released and the students can download the same from the official website.

Similarly, there are various other state boards that also strive to educate their students even in the face of adversity. Another board that has a lot of achievements, is the Andhra Pradesh board. Students, in Andhra Pradesh, are ensured a good education along with facilities such as a vast library and a good amount of practical laboratory demonstrations in the school under the AP Board. Last month, the AP intermediate hall ticket was released for students in the intermediate level of education to appear for their examinations.

A long time ago, the government educational institutions were the most reliable places for education but currently, the quality of education being imparted by these government institutions is very low and hence the students here are not able to get the education they deserve. Even after the countless requests made by the public for better educational facilities, there was no improvement. And, as a result of this, a lot of NGOs with a goal to help these children were started. People who were interested in this cause joined these NGOs and started teaching underprivileged children as best as they could.

With the advancement of technology and even some remote places in India having access to it, some people started putting up videos on the internet which would serve the sole purpose of educating children who were not able to learn in the government facilitated institutions they were going to. Someone once said that “The Internet isn’t just a powerful tool for communication. It’s arguably the most potent force for learning and innovation since the printing press.” And an online platform for education is just a small use of this really powerful tool created by humans.

A lot of the government educational boards have also started employing the uses of the internet in imparting education to its students. Most of the topics and required facilities for studies are being made accessible on online platforms that are official with regard to the state board. The AP intermediate hall tickets were released on the official website of the AP board for ease of accessibility to the students.

There are a lot of online platforms in India where students can go and learn about topics that they are interested in. Some teachers from government universities such as IITs and IIMs also upload videos of topics in their fields to educate students all over the country. These videos are accessible through platforms such as NPTEL. However, there are also some parts of the country that are prone to heavy military activities and are hence not granted access to the usage of the internet. One such state in India is Jammu and Kashmir, the students studying here are cut off from the usage of the internet for a good part of the year and are hence unable to use these services. But, the state education board does its best to keep these students informed of the latest technological developments and latest topics in the subject taught to these students.

The JKBose 12th admit card was released recently and the schools in Jammu and Kashmir are busy trying to help all their students revise for the upcoming examinations so that the students can have an opportunity are securing a seat at a good university for higher education.

It is important for a government to provide the aspirants of its country with a good education, as this is the only way for students to succeed in a competitive world.
