    Ahmedabad: The state education department has decided to implement certain norms under the Right to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) to enroll 25 per cent poor and socially backward students in class I.

    According to the notification issued to district education officials, around 5,300 students in eight municipal corporation cities of the state would be enrolled in class I from the starting academic year. These children should belong to below poverty line (BPL) cardholder families of scheduled caste, scheduled tribe, other backward classes apart from orphans, child labourers, children of migrants, special children, kids with cerebral palsy or children with special needs, physically challenged and HIV positive.

    State education department — in an official communiqué — has said 25 per cent kids from poor and socially backward areas would be admitted to private schools apart from grant-in-aid schools in eight cities. Of these cities, Ahmedabad will have 2,000 kids from socially backward class enrolled in standard I, 1,000 students in Surat, 500 students in Rajkot and 250 in Bhavnagar, Jamnagar, Junagadh and Gandhinagar.

    “Students will be enrolled in class I and free education will be provided to them till class VII,” stated the communiqué. Ahmedabad district education officer R I Patel said though they have received a notification, they were yet to begin interacting with schools in the city about implementing the norm.
