RTE Act Doesn't Seem Complete Yet-Schools Confused

RTE Act Doesn't Seem To Be Complete Yet
Admissions for the academic year 2013-14 are already on track across India. Yet, the confusion rules the implementation of RTE(Right To Education) Act.

Based on the Government's delay in issuing a circular has now led to delay in the admission of many non-state board schools this year. And hence, the Pre-primary admission in many non-state board schools in Mumbai were postponed till December.

These schools usually are said to start their admissions by October-November. During the month of April, 2012 the Supreme Court order which was issued to all schools across India stated that all schools, except unaided minority ones, will have to keep aside 25% seats at the entry level i.e. pre-primary or class 1 for children from socially/economically weaker sections (EWS) under the RTE Act.

As time passed on in this discussion, an amendment to the law said that only theological schools like marasas and vedic schools can skip reservation. Other schools, including unaided minority schools will have to keep aside 25% seats during admissions for next academic year.

A circular which was issued on 25th December, 2012 said that unaided minority schools will not have to follow the 25% RTE quota for admissions.

The confusion is in such state that some schools have already nodded for implementing the act where as many are not. What do you think is the main reason behind this confusions?
