CCS Dashboard#ccstalks TweetChat: ‘Is the RTE undermining its own objective?’, 30 April 2014, 7-8pm

#CCSTALKSDespite enrolment figures rising significantly since the RTE was passed in 2009, we see the Act leading to #schoolclosure of over 5,000 private schools that are currently serving the poorest sections of society. Is the RTE, which aims to achieve universal education, serving its purpose?

Join the TweetChat on ‘Is the RTE undermining its own objective?’ from 7-8pm on Wednesday, 30 April 2014. Parth J Shah (@parthjshah) will be hosting this week’s discussion!

Log in to and follow #ccstalks, or simply follow #ccstalks from the Twitter homepage. We look forward to talking with you!

Does compulsory education violate the rights of children or of their parents? These are just some of the questions we are looking to explore with you.
