The Lok Sabha passed the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (Second Amendment) Bill, 2017 on Wednesday.

On Wednesday, the Lok Sabha passed a bill to amend India's most important law on school education. The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (Second Amendment) Bill, 2017 removes a foundational provision of the Right to Education Act of 2009: that schools cannot make any child repeat a class until Class 8.

The amendment, to Section 16 of the Act, does away with this restriction - enforced from 2010 and also known as the " no detention policy" - and allows states to decide whether to detain children in Class 5 or Class 8, or both.

Activists and educationists contend that the change will inevitably lead to the dilution of other elements of the Right to Education Act, which is meant to back a fundamental right. Elementary education became a fundamental right in 2002.

As the lawyer and activist Khagesh Jha noted, scrapping the no detention policy will undermine the provision of admitting children in age-appropriate classes.
