 It ensure that every child under the age group of 6 to 14 gets quality and free education 2. ensuring that all the students and their teachers meet some specified norms 3. bringing  children of marginalized section into the ambit of school education.nearly all educationally developed countries attained their current educational status by legislating free and compulsory education -- Britain did so in 1870 -- India has dithered and lagged behind in introducing such legislation, with grave consequences.

Of the nearly 200 million children in the age group between 6 and 14 years, more than half do not complete eight years of elementary education; they either never enroll or they drop out of schools. Of those who do complete eight years of schooling, the achievement levels of a large percentage, in language and mathematics, is unacceptably low. It is no wonder that a majority of the excluded and non-achievers come from the most deprived sections of society -- Dalits, Other Backward Claases, tribals, women, Muslims and financially backward -- precisely those who are supposed to be empowered through education.

 The Prime Minister Shri Manmohan Singh has emphasized that it is important for the country that if we nurture our children and young people with the right education, India’s future as a strong and prosperous country is secure.

This entitles children to have the right to education enforced as a fundamental right.

 As I see it, there are three main points you will have to relate your speech to: RTE is realistic, it is achievable and it will change the face of education. Here are some points you could include FOR the motion.

Realistic:
The government has already introduced measures such as the mid-day meal to encourage children from economically backward homes to attend school. (I suggest you do some research on other measures that the government has introduced)
Children who fail classes lose interest in studying and are more likely to drop out. Parents whose children fail feel discouraged, and if they are not well-off, feel that it is a waste for them to pay for education. Already, schools cannot fail children till the 9th Std. This means that there will be less school dropouts in the 6-14 age group, which is what RTE targets.


Achievable:
I can 't give you exact points for this, but I would suggest that you look up the literacy statistics of various states and point out how they have been rising, suggesting that parents do want their children to be educated.

Change the face of education:
When we are forced to cater to ALL children, not just the ones that fit into the cookie-cutter mould, we will have to rethink many of our current, outdated systems and constructs of education.
RTE also requires 25% of seats, even in private schools, be reserved for economically backward students who will not pay full school fees, but will be subsidized by the government at a rate they consider acceptable. This will lead to fewer schools being run for a purely profit motive. Schools will also have to rethink their approach to teaching when they have to deal with a mixed group.
This 25% cannot be put into a separate division, so even children from wealthy families will be mixing with kids from poor families. As a direct result of this, they will grow up to be more broad-minded.
In order to ensure that children are learning what they need to, in spite of not failing classes, new methods of assessment like CCE are being introduced in both the Central and in many State Boards.

Since this is a debate, you should prepare for the following possible arguments:
RTE does not require parents to send children under 14 to school.
Private schools have not agreed to the 25% reservation.
Government measures are not always successful and are often not implemented properly.
There is no proper provision yet to ensure that all schools follow the guidelines.

Finally, I suggest that you make it clear that although RTE is both realistic and achievable and will definitely change the face of education in India, we cannot expect this to happen overnight. This is a major change that will take time to fully happen.

 ·  About 75% of the Indian population is literate in India

o  This means that about 250 million people in India are illiterate

o  Surprisingly, 150 out of these 250 are children in the age group of 6-14

·  This number was roughly the same in 2001

·  The censuses of 2001 and 2011 show us that in a span of 10 years, there has been very little progress in the Status of Education in India

·  The Right to Education Act aims to provide free and compulsory education to all individuals aged 6-14 in our nation. It was passed in 2009, and it is a relatively new act.

·  It goes without saying, that for any new initiative by the Government of India, there can never be 100% work and 0% corruption

·  The RTE is no different, and the success of this noble act is uncertain

·  The Education Sector has been allotted only 4.3 % of the GDP of our Nation, whereas the worldwide average is 6%, and in a country like India, which houses the largest illiterate population in the world, a lot of more money needs to be put in to change the situation.

·  The RTE Act is not the first attempt to educate India. Article 45 of our Constitution aimed to provide free education to Indians, within 10 years of its being passed. This meant that the deadline was 1960. The it was amended to make the deadline 1970, amended again to make it 1980, then 1990, then 2002 and then 2010, when it was finally merged with RTE Act. It has failed to make any progress or contribution to Literacy in India at all!

·  Our country has a student teacher ratio of 42:1, showing a massive lack of teachers. Out of the existing number of teachers, many of them are barely qualified para-teachers.

·  India needs about 6 lakh more classrooms if illiteracy has to be tackled. 86% of the schools in India have no toilets! Forget about libraries and playgrounds!

·  In India, male literacy is about 80%, while female literacy is about 60%. This is a huge gap. The gender bias and other stereotypes are too common in India. The Government should first tackle these problems.

·  The Right to Education Act is an unrealistic goal. There is no chance of it changing the face of education in India

                                   RIGHT TO EDUCATION-REALISTIC & ACHIEVEABLE

                                                      FOR THE MOTION

RTE states that every child between the age of 6 to 14 years has the right to free & compulsory education and that the private schools shall admit 25% of students without demanding any fee. My opponents say that such a situation will create inferiority complex in the poor class .... How funny!! Most parents whose kids go to reputed schools in the city believe that their children , sharing bench with poor students is no social threat ... Then why should the institution or public be bothered about it???

Our central govt. is so generous, it is even ready to provide finacial assistance by contributing 65% and the rest 35% will be handeled by the state govt. . By enforcing this act we are certian to have an educated next generation to hold our tricolour high!!

RTE is the first step towards the attainable 100% literacy rate.Children are like soft clay, if moulded properly,in the right enironment,learn from their very childhood that each individual is same. With this practical experience of studing together, this friendship developed at childhood will last forever. Is there anyone here who has ever discriminated any of his classmate on caste,class or relegion?? I dont think so... Then why are we opposing RTE??? On what grounds??? On what basis???

I emphasize"RTE is not only going to educate India , but will solve all its problems of caste, class and religion.... It will be like many shots from just one arrow!!

So people lets posit it & Achieve our goals!!!

HOPE THIS WILL BE OF GREAT HELP!!
