Access to education in India is rife with inequalities, despite the 2013 Right to Education Act. For example, although the numbers of children being enrolled at schools is increasing, there is a huge disparity in the number of children from rural vs. urban areas. 31.3% of children from rural India remain out of school, whilst the percentage of children out of school in urban areas has decreased to 2.54%. Differences in access are also evident between children from different Castes and Tribes, leading to complaints that the Indian Government is not doing enough to make the education system inclusive.
