the birth right of every individual- be it from any religion, race,
creed or caste. The Govt. of India brought into implementation the Right
to Education Act 2009 as its initiative to provide free and compulsory
education to all up to elementary level. The 25% reservation for the
Economically Weaker Section (EWS) in all the private schools was a
landmark that provided the equality of opportunity to the low income
groups to get their wards admitted in the private schools. This
initiative by the Government was appreciated all over India and many
students from low socio-economic background were benefitted from it.
But, the question underlying is that are these students accepted whole
heartedly by the administrators, teachers and students of those schools?
The present paper focuses on two issues: one pertaining to the attitude
of private schools (administrators and teachers) towards the reservation
and the other one related to the conditions faced by the students
admitted under the EWS category. The results and findings of the study
are discussed in detail in the sections in the paper.
