SC Directs Schools To Provide All Basic Facilities

Schools Should Have All Basic Facilities
The Supreme Court which has recently noticed schools with poor state of facilities, on Tuesday directed all the State Government in order to provide all the basic infrastructure in all schools within a time limit of six months.


A bench lead by Justice KS Radhakrishnan fixed the time limit and asked the governments to take steps to provide the basic facilities in schools across the country. The bench also said that all its previous directions pertaining to providing infrastructure should be implemented within the time frame fixed by it.

Hence, The apex court has here by asked the authorities to ensure that all government and private schools have drinking water and restroom facilities with next 6 months. This is not the very first time that these type of schools were ordered to provide basic facilities to children. In-fact last year on October 18, 2011 also, the apex court directed all states and union territories to build restrooms, particularly for girl students in all government schools.

But What was the result? Did Government schools provide that facility? Did they really take concern to think of it? Not exactly.

Earlier, the apex court had also stated that it was necessary that all schools provide toilet facilities, as practical researches indicated that wherever toilet facilities are not provided in schools, then parents do not send their children, particularly girls to schools.

The court has also ensured that not providing the infrastructure was an violation of the Right To Free and Compulsory Education of children guaranteed under Article 21-A the constitution.

Well, it is your right and concerned duty to see if your children are having all the basic facilities in the school they are studying. If, not every parent has the right to inform the RTE office about this. Not just as a parent, every citizen in India must be aware of this. Stand, Raise your Voice and Fight for the Right Of Every Children.
