ABSU unhappy over implementation of RTE in tribal areas
 

From our Correspondent

KOKRAJHAR, March 8: The Education is the Fundamental Right which is included in the Article 21A of the Constitution of India; this fundamental right is made more worthy under The Right of Children of Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009. The Act ensures the children from age of 6–14 years, for free and compulsory education.

However, the All Bodo Students’ Union (ABSU) in a statement sent by the General Secretary Romeo P Narzary and Education Secretary Kwrwmdao Wary said in many tribal areas of Assam children are deprived from getting free and compulsory education. In the recent Provincialization of the LP, UP and Secondary and Higher Education the Provision in the case of the elementary education which the RTE ensures that all the schools must be recognized and provincialized by the government as in the provision under Section 6 & 7 of the RTE Act, the statement said adding that the Provision in The Assam Venture Educational Institutions (Provincialization of Services) Act, 2011, provides the terms and conditions which contradicts the Fundamental Right to education in the elementary level. The All Bodo Students Union (ABSU) feels that certain conditions must unanimously considered by the Government of Assam in some factors.

The ABSU said the land issue is the fundamental right is inherent to the land where the persons are living. Therefore for the schools in the forest areas established and recognized must be provincialized as the land permit from the forest or any department cannot remain a hurdle in enjoying the Fundamental Right of Education; there is also a provision in the Schedule Tribes and other Traditional Forest Dwellers’ (Recognition of Forest Rights) Act, 2006 under Chapter II, Section 3(2) clearly directs the government of India and the State to allot land for the schools and other welfare projects for the ST and traditional forest dwellers people dwelling in the forest region. In–fact, denying the rights of the tribals’ forest rights in Assam is very much condemnable.

Mixed–medium (Bodo+Assamese) type of schools must not be left apart and only one medium must be provincialized when the recognition year and establishment is in the same year which will be a discriminatory to the vernacular medium either to Bodo or other medium and therefore the State government must give clear status and meaning of the reason behind the partial provincialization of the mixed medium LP, UP and High Schools. The Union demanded that all the mixed–medium (Bodo & Assamese) venture institutions must be provincialized.

On the distribution of free text–books, the ABSU said the government of Assam must be very sincere on the implementation of the Fundamental Right of Education to all sections of society and medium of instructions. The Union rejects the policy of not sending extra textbooks or the office copy in the LP & UP schools; which is a hindrance to the teacher to impart proper education lacking the opportunity to self study. The other concern is RTE ensures admission of children in any LP & UP schools at any time of the academic year; therefore books must be available at the schools for quick access for the quality education and ensuring fundamental rights. As all children are entitled to free and compulsory education from the age of 6–14 years, all children despite in private must get free textbooks all over the State.

Moreover, the Government of Assam has not maintained the demand of the ABSU to provincialize all the venture institutions without any condition since four decades. The Bodo medium schools were deprived from having sufficient teachers. However, in such condition of the functioning of the venture institutions how can there be a 20 per cent pass percentage maintained in that teacher less Bodo Medium Institutions? The government of Assam has done atrocities to the tribal community neglecting the backwardness and inability to quality education. The union demanded for the tribal venture institutions to be provincialized immediately. The ABSU warned the government of Assam that if the demands for the education are not met, the Union will have to press into strong movement to demand all the pending issues in future.
