PRIVATISING ED­U­CA­TION

Hindustan Times (Patiala) - - Region -

There are re­ports that the govern­ment may aban­don the re­spon­si­bil­ity of higher ed­u­ca­tion and hand it over to pri­vate play­ers, who could sell it like a com­mer­cial com­mod­ity. Such a step will make ed­u­ca­tion dearer and a dis­tant dream for the poor and mar­ginal sec­tions of so­ci­ety. Ed­u­ca­tion is a long-term in­vest­ment for the de­vel­op­ment of a na­tion and pro­duc­ing a civilised so­ci­ety. Many pri­vate in­sti­tutes in the ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor will ruin the aca­demic free­dom and erode qual­ity bench­marks and their only aim will be mak­ing money. Karan Singh Vi­nayak,
