Free and compulsory education to all children up to the age fourteen is constitutional commitment in India.
The Parliament of India has recently passed Right to Education Act through which education has become fundamental right of all children of age group 6-14 year.
The Article 46 of the Constitution of India holds that:
“The State shall promote, with special care, the education and economic interests of the weaker sections of the people, and in particular of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, and shall protect them from social injustice and all forms of social exploitation”.
