The recent incident of killing of a small primary student of Ryan International School at Gurgaon again raised questions about loopholes in private educational institutes. The private institute employs fourth class staff without taking proper measures to earn profit. Private schools charge heavy fees in name of good education, providing world class facilities, security, communication etc. but the result is zero.
Their CCTV cameras don't work, they don't provide timely information to parents, they don't hire employees as per norms, but just thinks and operate to achieve maximum profits.

In last decade even the working condition of teaching community has gone from bad to worse. Government gives lot of benefits to private educational sch…

Brokers trade JEE toppers to coaching classes for credit - The Times of India

This is the first breakthrough in to coaching business. This incident has proved that it is purely commercialization of education. A student who secure good rank in IIT-JEE may earn a nice amount if wishes so. The amount is in term of Prize awarded to him but actually it is the money against securing his name as their student. If the coaching sector is investigated it will definitely proved that all the entrance toppers name are sold in market to various institutes. These institutes then advertise the names of this students in their marketing campaign to attract student for admission.

In my time education is a noble cause and teachers are respected for their services but the sale-purchase of good rankers has turned the education into business and eaten the social touch of Education sector. Government spends so much on education sector, gives subsidies, loans etc. bu…

Corruption in Education (AICTE)

AICTE (All India Council of Technical Education) , the technical arm who gives approvals on behalf of Government of India for Technical colleges and courses is in limelight due to suspension of its Chairman over corruption case and nearly three dozen office has been sent back to their parent cadres. The step has been taken by HRD ministry so that no influence happens in investigations. CBI (Central Bureau of Investigations) is probing a case of demanding money for increase in intake of seats against some AICTE officials. This incident shows that corruption is rooted deeply in our system and I know that in last 2-3 years so many engineering colleges opened in Delhi & Haryana. I knows that that big amount and handsome gifts had been given to officials for approval of Colleges even when they are not fulfilling the infrastructure, faculty, other required norms. It is very sad that we want to make India Super Power but our institutes which will give us the future army for work is not …

Commercialization of Education

Commercialization  of Education is on boom in India these days and its starting was from the days of boom in IT Sector when many private companies opened their computer training centre giving diplomas and degrees in various town & cities of every state. Most of which failed and run away with hard earned money of peoples. Similarly the concept of Distance Education launched by government in its various universities is purely business model behind it because whenever a students miss any deadline he have to pay the fines but if university misses all deadlines no measures will be taken in that case. I myself have gone through a graduate distance programme from Guru Jambeshwar University, Hisar, Haryana and I never received the study material on time I have to pay the fees by end of august but I always received material in the last week of January. In last year of course for one subject A soft copy (CD) of that subject received to me only two days before the exam. I want to say that wh…
