National Seminar on Right to Education: Constitutional Dynamics
Two Day National Seminar on Right to Education: Constitutional Dynamics is organized by the Faculty of Law - IFHE, Hyderabad in collaboration with National Commission for Protection of Child Rights, New Delhi.
Date: 18th - 19th August, 2012
Theme of the Seminar:
A popular adage - "An illiterate person is a weird animal" - is an eternal caution to human wisdom. Education is always hailed as the true refulgence of human development and a nation's strength. Education knows no stages and status in the pursuit of learning. Learning in alphabets is no less than the endeavor of a prospective doctorate. Our ancient culture emphasized the prominence of education for all in order to ensure fraternity, real peace and prosperity in the society.
Our paramount law i.e. The Constitution of India made ample provisions to enable the State organs to implement the sagacious mandates contained in Art-21, Art-21.A, Art.29, Art.30 Art-45, Art-46 and Art-47 coupled with the spirit contained in Art-51.A(k). Our rulers and the governments, both at the centre and states, are reported to have made some efforts which could not prevent public displeasure and sharp criticism.
To-day, higher education is said to be at cross-roads or inaccessible for majority of Indian Citizens and quality primary and secondary education has become a dream for most of the children, the future of India. Time is ripe now to take stock of the true situation in Education sector, covering primary and secondary, undergraduate and post-graduate, professional and vocational - being offered till now through conventional institutions and establishments and also through Distance Education Mode.
In practice the right exists in theory but there is no capacity to implement this right. A general demand for total revamp of education policies is emerging and the public discontent simmering should be answered fruitfully.
