RTE answer to many child violation cases: NCPCR

If the RTE is implemented in letter and spirit, many child related cases will be solved on their own," the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights chief said.



Bhubaneswar: Proper implementation of the
Rights To Education Act can solve a host of problems faced by
children in the country, NCPCR chairperson Santha Sinha said
Thursday.

"If the RTE is implemented in letter and spirit, many
child related cases will be solved on their own," the National
Commission for Protection of Child Rights chief said.

She expressed concern over non-implementation of RTE
in many states and blamed lack of coordination among
departments like school and mass education, women and child
development, panchayati raj and police.

"Unless all the departments work in tandem, it is
difficult to get actual benefits of RET," Sinha said.

Replying a question on the commission not having a
policy to stop children from becoming Maoists, Sinha said "If
the children are in school, neither the Maoists nor others
will get at them. We have to ensure that all children attend
school."

The commission has asked the state to act in cases of
schools having no teachers, liquor shops near them and fees
demanded by some government run ones.

Unavailability of funds to address problems of
children as claimed by many states was not an excuse as the
country had enough money to take care of them, she said.

The commission held a two-day public hearing on
violation issues related to child rights.
