Education law covers all activities and operations of educational institutions, staff working therein, teachers and students. 86th Constitutional Amendment made right to education a fundamental right, putting the onus on the state to provide “free and compulsory education to all children under the age of six to fourteen years”. This also comes within the ambit of education law and anybody denied admission in government schools can move the court for enforcement of this right. Right to (free and compulsory) Education Act, 2009 provides details about accessibility and quality of education to be provided.

When an educational institute drafts its policies and rules, it must bear in mind to comply with all legal requirements and the rights of the students and teachers. Also, it is equally important for the enrolled students to follow all the rules laid down. Unfair means, commercialisation, corruption and favoritism, ragging and unruly treatment of students- all these must be checked to ensure minimum standards and quality of education is maintained.
