UN bodies hail education law

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Apr 2 (PTI): Major UN organisations today hailed the implementation of Right To Education Act and said this "ground-breaking" initiative will propel India to even greater heights of prosperity and productivity.

UNICEF, ILO and UNESCO applauded the law which makes education a fundamental right of every child in the 6-14 age bracket in India.

"Tens of millions of children will benefit from this initiative ensuring quality education with equity," said Karin Hulshof, UNICEF Representative in India.

"RTE will propel India to even greater heights of prosperity and productivity for all guaranteeing children their right to a quality education and a brighter future," Hulshof said.

Noting that a large number of children in India are still out of school, Hulshof said the world cannot reach the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) of having every child complete primary school by 2015 without India.
