 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.

Right to Education  Act ensures compulsory admission attendance , & completion of elementary education till the age of 14 years.

the aims of RTE are ;

bringing  children of marginalised sections into the ambit of school education:

ensuring that all schools and their teachers meet some specified norms :

ensuring that all children recieve quality schooling free from any kind of discrimination.

 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.
