Join in on the debate between Vinod Raina (Member, Central Advisory Board of Education) and Parth Shah (President, Centre for Civil Society) on whether private schools do in fact have a role to play in the future of our children’s education.
Vinod Raina asks ‘Nowhere in the world has universal elementary education been achieved through private schools — how can India be an exception?‘ and Parth counters that ‘It is in recognition of the merit of private schools that the Act (RTE Act) says they must reserve seats for the poor. Why not give students a 100 per cent choice?‘
