DETERIORATION IN EDUCATION AND RESEARCH

DETERIORATION IN EDUCATION AND RESEARCH




She is not an exception. There are many more in fact no shortage of similar category teachers in the country. One can easily find some in Delhi itself. You will be ASTONISHED to come across teachers even with master's & Ph.D. degrees behaving the same way. 


Such teachers / faculty are able to produce in large numbers the literate (uneducated) graduates every year. Mismatch of Qualification and Knowledge today is causing frustration amongst the youth. These graduates aren’t able to sustain their respective work places. The scenario is real bad for our industries. Bad and dishonest Teachers destroy the career and life of students. 

The burning example of this dishonest (both academic & financial corruption) selection process is the case of DTU reported by the Times of India on March 13, 2015. Kindly go through the link below for details. 




Excerpt:

SCRAP HIRING DONE BY EX-VC, DTU TOLD

Shreya Roy Chowdhury, Times of India / Mar 13, 2015, 03.50PM IST

NEW DELHI: Delhi Technological University (DTU) has been directed to nullify the appointment of teachers who did not meet minimum criteria for recruitment, bar the committee members responsible for their selection from participating in such a process in future and stop “all processes initiated by former VC”. The March 4 letter from the Department of Training and Technical Education (DTTE) communicating the Lieutenant Governor’s directions is addressed to the new vice-chancellor of DTU. 

In March last year, LG Najeeb Jung had constituted a three-member committee headed by former chief secretary of Delhi, R Narayanaswami, to conduct an inquiry into allegations of corruption in a 2012 round of recruitment at DTU. The posts advertised had been for the positions of professor and associate professor. The committee had submitted its report by July, 2014. It had observed that in that round, eligible candidates hadn't been given a chance while several ineligible ones were not only called for interviews but even selected. The former vice chancellor, on whose watch these breaches took place, was sent on leave pending inquiry and has since retired………..

This clearly proves that for the sake of personal gains, the selection process has been reduced to a joke. The overall deterioration in education and research across the country is the result of this faulty and corrupt system. Such substandard teachers aren't capable of teaching the right subjects and hence the whole caucus gets busy in redesigning the Academic Curriculum to suit the individual’s comfort level at the expense of the career of the students and industrial growth. Who bothers for the quality and content of the academic programme? There is no accountability rather whole system gear up to shield such teachers / faculty. This nexus in selection procedure is impacting GDP directly. GDP contribution hasn't touched even 20% from manufacturing sector.

It is because of this failure of literate (uneducated) engineers to sustain "Made in India" that GOI is compelled to go in for "Make in India". It is foolish to expect anything beyond. How do the experts who were responsible for such selections sleep peacefully? 

But what is the solution? Who is responsible for this ROT? Faculty entering through back-door must be made to exit from the same door no matter how much time they have served. NO MERCY, COME WHAT MAY.

Illegally selected faculty is like cobra venom and selectors are cobras. Antidote is their removal and pulling of fangs is equally important, that is banning all such selectors for life from taking any position of responsibility etc. It is high time to act. Start prescribing bitter pills. Let us weed out such people for all round development of the Nation. Society has to take the call.

DTU episode reported in papers must be done JUSTICE. ACADEMIC FRATERNITY IS DESPERATE TO SEE THAT ATLEAST THE REPORTED DAMAGE IS UNDONE.
