Maharashtra not to fail students from Classes 1 to 8
Mumbai: The Maharashtra government issued orders late Monday directing all schools in the state not to detain or fail any student between Classes 1 to 8, an official said.
The government order was issued making this policy effective from the current academic year 2009-2010.
It has been issued under the provisions of the Right to Education Act passed recently by the central government.
As per the government directive, those students who have been failed this year will be now promoted to the next class.
