The “Right to Education (RTE) Act 2009” was established in the year 2009 by the government of India. This made education mandatory for all in the age range of 6 to 14 years, until they have completed their basic education. As soon as the RTE was established, it was expected that the quality of education in schools will improve and better educational facilities will be provided to the students in all the schools.
