The Supreme Court has upheld the validity of the Right to Education Act under Article 15(5) and 21-A of the Constitution about compulsory education to six to 14-year-olds.

Sitting in two related cases, the constitution bench of CJI RM Lodha and justices AK Patnaik, Dipak Misra, SJ Mukhopadhaya and Ibrahim Kalifulla also ruled as valid the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009, and the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Rules 2010, reported The Hindu.
