Promulgation of RTE-Act among Disabled Children
Disability is not merely a physical fact, but also involves a normative, cultural, and legal concept. The society’s perception of a disabled person also reflects its idea of a normally functional human being and the definition as considered by the society gives us an insight into the society’s self image. The recognition by the society of the terms mentally and physically disabled also implies a responsibility of the society towards the people who fit that description. A society with deep ethos of social responsibility is likely to be more open in its definition of disability. The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009 is landmark legislation in the history of the Nation that makes elementary education a fundamental right for children between the ages of 6-14. But millions of children with disabilities got left out in the Act. Being a Challenged Person i would like to extent to knowledge about educational and psychological well being of disabled children’s. In my point of view there are many challenges and issues are not implementing properly the challenges like lack of awareness, not involving the teachers directly, there is no implementation in lower level educational systems, there is any reviews of the act at least yearly once. Etc. This paper highlights some of the challenges that are faced by children with disabilities in achieving their right to education. If we can implement all above issues related challenges all most maximum numbers of disabled children are benefit in future. This paper also disseminates knowledge by giving suggestions for effective implementation of RTE for the children with disabilities.
