Haryana Free and Com­pul­sory Ed­u­ca­tion Act came into force on June 3. The act makes it manda­tory that pri­vate schools re­serve 25% seats for chil­dren from eco­nom­i­cally weaker sec­tions and dis­ad­van­taged groups. If el­i­gi­ble, chil­dren can­not be screened be­fore join­ing the school and trained teach­ers have to be pro­vided for their ed­u­ca­tion that is free. The Act also en­sures that no neigh­bour­hood schools deny ad­mis­sion to chil­dren be­tween the age of 6 and 14 years.
