COIMBATORE: The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has reconstituted the Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) Committee to examine the feasibility of bringing pre-school and secondary education under the Right to Education Act.

The committee will be headed by Agra BJP MP  Ramshankar Katheria. It will have 23 other members, including the ministers of education from Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal, Assam, Kerala, Haryana and Manipur and vice chancellors of the Central University, Gaya, National University of Educational Planning and Administration, Chairman of the Central Board of Secondary Education and also the Director of National Council for Educational Research and Training.

In August 2011, a CABE committee to examine the same subject was formed under the chairmanship of the then MHRD Minister of State, D Purandeswari, but it has not submitted a report. The new committee has been asked to hold consultation with all stakeholders, including parents, teachers’ associations, school managements, State governments, representatives of local bodies and civil society organisation and submit its recommendations in six months.

The committee has been asked to examine feasibility of bringing pre-school and secondary education under the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009. The advisory committee should also propose draft legislation incorporating the pre-school and secondary education component in the Act and prepare detailed financial estimates for implementing it.
