POLICIES ON PAPER ARE TANGENTIAL TO THE POLICIES IN PRACTICE: PLIGHT OF HIGHER EDUCATION

POLICIES ON PAPER ARE TANGENTIAL TO THE POLICIES IN PRACTICE: PLIGHT OF HIGHER EDUCATION

Our custodians are expert planners in making the excellent policies and roadmaps for a crop of quality higher education but there is hardly an effort to identify the good quality seed, farmer and necessary infrastructure for irrigation and organic manure to result in a higher yielding quality crop. Until this is addressed, there can’t be any meaningful output.

There are many Government / Private institutions in the country which are doing gross injustice to their students and consequently to the Nation. Insufficient classrooms, insufficient Laboratories, serious shortage of teaching professionals (Gurus)*, No Technical staff, no Workshop practicals, no engineering drawing halls.

It is very unfortunate that taxpayers' precious hard-earned money is simply going to waste. Is there any way, the custodians can make public the Utilization Factor for the tax-payer’s money spent in the name of higher education? Most unfortunate for the Nation is that the Policies on paper are opposite to the Policies followed in practice.

* Unfortunately institutions are hiring “Teaching Employees'' and not the "Teaching Professionals (GURUS)" because they fail to differentiate between these two terms.
