The first Student First! Dialogue Series of 2010 organised on 11 March 2010 at the India Habitat Centre started with an open forum discussion on Implementing the 25% in the RTE Act 2009: Developing a Model.  Mr Jan SJ Rao, Associate Director, School Choice Campaign chaired the program which saw the active participation of over 50 participants from various sectors- NGOs, educationists, civil society, parliamentarians, economists, corporates, parents and the youth.

The discussion addressed some critical questions that’s needs to be answered systematically and comprehensively for this idea of the RTE Act to work well- definition of weaker and disadvantaged sections, selection of beneficiaries, admission criteria and process, mechanisms for reimbursements, monitoring of the project were the highlights of the discussion.

Suggestions, ideas and feedback arising from the program coupled with consultations and workshops with various stakeholders in the coming days will be used to develop the model further. The final implementation model for the 25% reservation in private schools and CCS legislative analysis of the RTE Model Rules will be presented to MHRD and various State governments.
