How to improve implementation of RTE 25% reservation?

30 March 2016, 4-5pm

25% reservation under RTE aims at inclusion of the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) in private education system. Numerous studies suggest that the implementation has been ineffective. Is 25% Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) quota under RTE an effective policy intervention? If yes, shouldn't the govt. fund students rather than schools to promote choice and accountability?
