In Pramati Educational and Cultural Trust v Union of India (2014), the Supreme Court preferred an outdated interpretation of minority rights under Article 30(1) in keeping all minority schools, aided and unaided, beyond the scrutiny posed by the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009. The Indian Supreme Court has an opportunity in Independent School Federation of India v State of Uttar Pradesh (2016) to correct this and redeem itself.
