Impact Report: Right To Education Campaign TN 2021-2022

The Right To Education Act, 2009 (RTE) works towards safeguarding the Fundamental Right of a child’s Right to Education. Section 12(1)(c) of the RTE Act, 2009 mandates a minimum reservation of 25% seats for the free admission of children belonging to weaker sections and disadvantaged groups in entry-level schools (LKG and Grade 1 classes) of private, unaided non-minority institutions. 

2021-22 RTE Statistics – Across TN:

Total number of RTE schools : 8437

Total number of RTE seats available : 1,08,978

Total number of students admitted : 56,166

Due to lack of awareness, 48.4% of the seats are being unfilled across Tamil Nadu. 

Thus, Bhumi has been tirelessly working along with the help of its volunteers. Over the last 4 years, we have been able to bring in significant changes in the number of people becoming aware of this opportunity and also in the number of children who have been able to avail free education through RTE.

Parent Testimonial:

“I am Meena from Chennai. I have admitted my child Vendhan to Beta Matriculation Higher Secondary School this year through RTE. I thank Bhumi for the help provided to me. They guided me right from identification and because of them I am able to admit my child to a good school. As I was facing many hardships due to the pandemic, being able to admit my child in a good school through RTE free education is a ray of hope to our family.

Volunteer Testimonial:

-Alisha Alex Raj, Volunteer

I was keen to volunteer for the society specifically related to education. That’s how I came across Bhumi. It was a different experience to volunteer for the RTE initiative of Bhumi. It revealed the root cause of issues in the education system and also provided a platform to support and address the issues of the parents.

The happiness and excitement in the parents’ voice, when their kids are admitted to a school is something to be treasured. It is always special when I’m a part of someone’s happiness. The joy of providing support fills my heart with immense pleasure.

I’m glad to be part of Bhumi and it was a great experience to work along with the team who share the same ideology. I’m looking forward to providing more support in the upcoming years.
