Students Can Now be Failed in Classes 5 and 8, No-detention Policy Scrapped

The NDA Govt Cabinet on Wednesday  August 02,2017 approved scrapping the no-detention policy in schools till class 8. 

The provision to that effect will be made in the Right of Children for Free and Compulsory Education Amendment Bill (RTE) which will allow states to detain students in class 5 and class 8 if they fail to clear their final exam.

The students, however, will be given a second chance to improve through another examination in May or June before they are detained. 

Under the present provision of RTE Act, students are promoted automatically to higher classes till class 8. This is one of the key components of the RTE Act, which came into force on April 1, 2010. The bill will now be tabled in Parliament for approval.
