KANPUR: Every government, public and private school should have 25% reservation at entry level for the students from humble background from the academic session 2012-13. This was decided in a meeting of district education project committee convened by district magistrate to discuss the implementation of the Right to Education Act with the BSA at the collectorate on Thursday.
The DM had instructed the BSA to send a notice to all the government, public and private schools to reserve 25% seats in class I for the students from economically poor background from the upcoming academic session of 2012-13.The school authorities have also asked to submit the list of the BPL students admitted in the schools within a deadline from the commencement of new academic season.

"The government and private schools should cooperate with the administration to implement the RTE Act in the district so that we can become a model city for implementing it," DM M P Agarwal said.According to the recent judgment of the Supreme Court in favour of Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009, (better known as the Right to Education Act or RTE Act), the composition of students in classes in private schools and the economic matters of private educational institutions will undergo dramatic changes.
This has authorities of several schools worried as they don't want to support RTE but can't deny it as well.
