Introduction

The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009 was passed by Parliament on 1st April 2010. However the state government notified its state rules late, delaying implementation. As reported by civil society organizations and teachers, first phase of School Management committees (SMCs) was formed in the year 2010 without formal electoral process as mandated under RTE act. Last year in the month of August to September, second phase of SMCs have been formed in fairly transparent and democratic manner. Training of elected members of SMCs and formation of school development plan is a major challenge in this year.
