Children get admission in middle school

In Kiravara there is a primary school. In Fifth class there were 12 male children and 5 female children. All children passed fifth class. When these children went for admission in  nearby middle school which is situated in Lardeh village, the principal of the school demanded 100 rupees from every child for admission. When our NGO partner CID team leader came to know about this fact, he sent the para teacher to talk with the principal.  The principal  of school refused to admit the children saying admissions were closed. The Para teacher told him about Right To Education act that any children between to 6 to 14 age can be admitted any time in his or her near by school without any charges. The principal then agreed to admit the children without taking any fees. Now all 17 children are enrolled in thi middle school.
