Indian Law: Right of Children to Free Education

In a developing country like India, a majority of the population is illiterate and living far below the poverty line. Inevitably, the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009, was enforced by the Indian government to regulate the education of children. Children related laws and issues are of considerable interest to the government and the judiciary. Under the Indian laws, every child is guaranteed, the right to admission, education and the right to not be expelled from a school.
