With the passage of The Right to Children Free and Compulsory Education Bill, on free and compulsory education to children in Parliament, the quality of education in schools in the country is set to take a forward leap.

The Bill, which makes education a right of every child in the age group of six to 14 years, stipulates a series of norms and standards for the schools, ranging from teachers-student ratio, building requirements and working hours for teachers.

According to the legislation, there should be at least one teacher per 30 children in schools having classes one to five. The ratio should be maintained upto a students’ strength of 120.
