Manzoor Ahmad Sofi

Education is a basic right of every child. But when children are not able to enjoy this right, there is a need for an Act to enforce the right. In spite of all efforts, if the Act is to be implemented in its true spirit, it is necessary for the stakeholders to have an awareness of the Act. This study is an attempt to investigate the awareness of Right to Education (RTE Act 2009) among the parents of Muslim Community of Srinagar City. The sample consists of 146 Muslim Community Parents selected randomly from the rural and urban localities of the Srinagar city. Descriptive survey method was used for the present study. The main objective of the study was to find out the awareness level of Muslim community parents related to RTE Act 2009. From the results, it was found that the parents who send their children to private schools were more aware about the RTE Act than the parents who send their children to government schools. A significant difference was also found in the awareness level of RTE Act among rural and urban Muslim parents and that the urban parents are more aware of RTE Act than the rural parents.
