As there are talks of Indian education system being privatised in India, According to the experts there are two roadblocks in the way of transforming India into an economic giant and one of them is education. And i believe that if education is privatised, lot of our problems will be solved.

It is said that engaging the private sector in providing quality education across primary, secondary and post-graduate levels will not only augment the Government's efforts in education but significantly upgrade the quality of education and its relevance to the times.

Should Education system be privatised in India?

Mr. Bhat and Ms. Sarika, i think at the end of the day what matters is end product that you get out of these institutions, and Private institutions are producing time and again better results as they are focussed on what they really want from these students, and most of the government institutions are in their own mess at many times and are not focussing on students quality education that needs to be provided to them...

There are lots of students who are already losing the chance to get education in Government schools due to their economic problem. What to say about private schools. If education is privatised, then a major mass of students won't be able to get education due to high fees. So it should not at all be privatised

This is a difficult question to answer. The reason being our environment is very complex and that itself need lots of efforts and work to simplify it in the first place. Few I can state is the leadership should ask themselves whether the support to the Economy provided by the citizen is adequate enough or not? Then whether the citizen need support the big Agenda behind our existence as a nation? Whether our leadership ever worry about such a state for our Nation? If so in what capacity we are willing to pursue that agenda and whether what sorts of endowment of citizen and the creation of wealth for the nation that can support such an agenda? When we answer these questions or the leadership try to then the question of what to do with our Academia will naturally fall in place. Otherwise we wouldn't be able to set a proper target for our output from the Academia based on which the Academia can be designed. Also trying to privatize education might make it difficult for the less endowed to pursue quality education however economically feasible that is, though historically it was the private education that started it all and later on for accomodating uniformity in citizen public institution cropped up in the environments of Nation States.

Why not free the education system fro the hackles of the government. In the last 65 odd years, government hasn't been able to eradicate illiteracy. Now let us try the Private sector to give it a shot and redeem of the right of education.

The need for education is to generate skilled labor and who needs skilled labor, the capital owners. So it is natural that their self interest should see to it that skilled labor is available in plenty so it is their responsibility and need to see that education is in the private hands to a large extent. Government can play a minor role with their contributions though it is the private interest that need to build nurture and grow academia in a nation. This ofcourse is not my opinion, Adam Smith narrated about this during his times and western societies follow this path. Efficient r&d, product innovation, improvements and experiments are all needs for private interests or capitalists to sustain their self interest for which the manpower is sought in academia and they should play a major role in this.

my dear friend privatization doesn't mean that students are being charged. instead teachers are being paid by the private sector instead of directly from government... students fee is provided by government itself.

Privatization is as needed as the jan lokpal bill by Anna Hazare. Guys I myself visited many time to government school whre my mom teaches and saw that there are many helpful kits provided for interactive studies for students every year but the remain untouched for years. And more over even teachers are not trained well enough to teach the students using those kits though a training has been provided for the teachers to use the kits. How ignorant!!!! This is only because its a government school ....? Right?

If govt. can generate employment opportunities through both the pvt. and public sectors, I dont think privatization of the education sector will create a problem for those whom we say cannot pay the fees.In a way, both should work hand in hand, on one hand govt. creating employment opportunities to increase the disposable income and on the other, improving the education system by privatising them.

I think i have a solution for this problem as there are to be govt universities which have seat only on the basis of merit and no reservation. And second kind of govt college which has a certain amount of reservation for those under BPL andstudents who a left behind. The process should be so that the students having their ranks in a particular range a to pay a capital fees of some amount .ie a boy who has his rank between 1000-2000 should pay a capital of say 10 lakhs and another having his rank from 2001-3000 should pay 15 lakhs and so on. The advantage of this concept is that the poor and the brillient a getting chances to study as per there potential. Here the problem of only the rich getting educated will not arise.

Private education does not necessarily have to mean expensive education. A balance has to be drawn and a system created, a system which is inclusive and supports disadvantaged children. Therefore in order to prevent an imbalance (i.e. too great a profit orientation of private players in the education industry), the government should partner various private sector actors to provide an education system accessible to all. For example, in order to compensate for its smaller role in the education curricula etc., the government of India can set up monitoring bodies and provide a certain percentage of funding in exchange for a reservation quota. A private - public partnership would be ideal for creating a balance in the education system for the better.

i think yes it should & why not....when one can invest to buy a car ...when one can take loan to build house then why cant one borrow to get educated after all it will be an income generating asset...privatization doesnt only mean high fee structure and raising standards of living it also means quality education. infact we should open the windows n look outside the box we've been living in.

Privitisation of

education will sure have its good results in the days to come , especialy due to the competion the private Institutions create  create agianst the Govt run Insitutions.

But there is fear of education getting costlier. It is dreamed that the Govt will regulate the costas and also subsidise the cost of education at all level and so the education will be failry priced and common man can get it.

 

But look at the present scenario. What role the peoplein the power centre are doing. Ministers are interested in making money in race of admissions to Educational Insttutions. The PG courses in the field of Medicine are already thrown beyond the vision of the common man.

That means Politicians support private Institutions with Govt regualtions continued. Then they can make hey from any side.

In Govt Institutions some times permanat teachers are not appointed due to the encumbarnce of the posts by Job Reservation policy.

On the other side Private Institutions make money collecting fees from public and paying less salary to staff.

What  is wanted is not private Institution but privatisation of TEACHING.

 A new system should come where in a qualified teacher is selctedby student and education is imparted , within the sphere of Govt regulations , and the student pays the proper fees to the teacher and the Regulating authority ( Education dept ) gets its service Tax.

That type of steps , especialy in Primary education is most feasible and viable and practicable.

 

When a qualified , and Licenced doctor can treat a patient , do an operation and also issue Medical Certificate  acceptable to Court,  !!!!!, why shouldnt' a qualifeid and licensed teacher be made eligible to play his  similar role in his field.

 

Yes , a student properly taught by private qulified teacher can face Tenth standard examination if Govt authority makes a way for it.

Under such circumstances neither the pupilsnor the Govt  willbe in trouble.

 

Let us not forget. There are only  3 things in education. The knoledge, the teacher and the Taught. And  these  3 are building the nation.

Government should not give up its role.

Congrats to Tamil Nadu Government which in this year's budget announced upgrading of government schools, setting up of new polytechnics, medical colleges and making PG studies in Government colleges absolutely Free. Also it has increased allocation to education and has increased fresh recruiting drive for teachers in all levels. The policy is clear in TN one Govt Engg College and Medical college in each district of the state to accommodate the poor and deserving students. In entire India in TN more students will be studying in government colleges/schools in the near future. Good work with needs to be appreciated and emulated by all State Govts

Yes, i partially support the argument, the advantage of privatisation the education surely enhance the confidence of the children, better facilities to the students, value addition in education and also better and updated talent and skilled teaching staff would be available for better challenge and competence among the students.  but it would promote more capitation and fees structure which should be controlled by participation of the ruling government so that the said education should be within the reach of a common man therein by creating equality and justice.

Education has always been a joint sector activity. Private sector has always been there. Witness the plethora of schools and colleges set up by private individuals in our cities and towns (and villages too). There is only a need for proper regulation of education in the private as well as the public sector. Recent privatisation efforts have resulted in a lop-sided emphasis on so-called professional subjects rather than a wholesome focus on education comprehensively.

But of course, you are absolutely right. In the final analysis, only the end product matters. Not whether the service provider (the educational institution) is funded by socialistic tax money or by market economics.

The major worry when private players enter into the arena is that the main consideration turns towards courses that are currently hyped up. The less glamorous courses don't get attention as they don't bring in immediate money from the paying consumers. So, an MBA course might get too many institutions where people will still be willing to pay astronomical sums as fees whereas the fundamental sciences don't get any attention. That the fundamental sciences are the pillars upon which the whole edifice of modern economy stands does not find any merit.

Having said that, it is still better than having a Govt. sector institution where the one with "reach" gets the gold medal. At least the market forces might be able to bring in balance as opposed to the case where the supposed cream of the institution in actual reality might turn out to be worthless. The market economy type of educational institutions will be associated with a lot of social pain without any doubt.

Our population is increasing by the second, and our educational infrastructure is struggling to cope up. More and more institutions will mean higher percentage of educated population. We need infinite institutions today! If we plan today, we might manage to educate all our children tomorrow. That is the need of the hour. To depend fully on the government on this is living in Utopia. Privatization is the only answer. In addition incentives should be given to encourage quality educational institutes in form of financial support, recognitions, rankings, quality control standards, awards, etc. We need to hurry. We have no time to waste. Government should also plan free and compulsory education for all. If we start planning today, our children may be able to see the day tomorrow. Literacy is the answer to poverty.

Absolutely, agree with you. At the end of the day, only thing that matters is the quality of the end product, i.e. the future citizens of the country.

Since private enterprise is prone to excesses, a case in point being the recent hike in school fees to the tune of an excess of 30% on an already relatively high base by the private institutions and the resulting furor by parents, it is towards this end that a regulatory body with teeth is needed to oversee and regulate the educational institutions right from the primary level to highest level just like the capital market is regulated by SEBI, Banking system is regulated by RBI, telecom sector is regulated by TRAI, etc. In case there are good quality Govt institutions, they should be allowed to flourish within this framework without fear or favour.

While there is no doubt that the private sector is the way to go given the pitiable condition of education right now, it not the "one size fits all" solution either. Private sector just cannot be allowed to go the complete free market way. There are dangers resulting from the very factor that is behind the success of Private Enterprise, namely greed. Too high a price for education and there will be medium and long term trouble. Too narrow a focus on areas of knowledge that hyped for profit and there is a deficiency in probably more curcial, but less hyped fields. Market forces will correct these eventually, but cost of correction is probably something that no society would be able to bear.

Thus, private sector in education is necessary, but has to be regulated and has to coexist with Govt sector.

Yes I support for the privatization of education system but formulated with strict rules and regulation so that It should not become a business. Privatization will lead to a better structure for studies. We can see in our common life that students are taking private tutions after attainding the schools and college. It is because they are not getting clear idea from there. As the schools are the base for our life and from there it is decided where the life of students will go. So, there should be a better institution for this. These days the structure of schools are made in such a way that the syllabus can be covered by any student, which is decreasing the efficiency of brilliant students. Rather it should be made grade wise so that the brilliant students can be catagorised in one grade A and the other in B. And this can be done ony by privatisation.

For what it is worth, education in general has already passed into private hands. Today, if any parent looks for quality education in larger towns and cities, it is the private schools that are shortlisted first. Same goes for higher education also, though to a lesser extent than the primary and secondary education. However, in the higher education whether Govt. funded or not, the institutions already function as a private enterprise - are self funding, autonomous, charge hefty fees, etc. Therefore, the question should now be -- How does one ensure that the private sector in charge of educating the future generation does a commendable job ?

I am not telling there should be complete privatisation, if that happens yes common man cannot afford to study any more but then how many of them are going to Government schools for education and then later getting very less or no opportunities at all in future as everybody knows the qualtiy of the education that these government institutions provide apart from very few like the IIT's and others, so Privatisation in the sense let government keep a cap on how much should be the donation and let government sponsor for the poor than running their own institutions, when they are not able to give literacy to all then no point in doing a half job, Half job done is Job not at all done according to me, these government Institutions are just not enough opportunities to reach one's potential with no backing of funds, here comes the participation of private players which does a lot more good than Government.

According to me privatisation of education is necessary from several points. In the first place, education has become a very expensive venture for the government and for which it cannot afford.

Secondly, the educational infrastructure of the government is very poor. There are shortages of school buildings, teaching staff and many other facilities. The government lacks resources.  And all these adversely affect the overall equality of education of a person. It has also seen that government spending so much on education and is not able to reap the proportionate rewards due to several reasons, therefore, education should be privatised.

This is especially true for higher education like advanced research which costs the government a fortune. With all the above facts we can conclude that privatisation of Education is needed in the country.

This is my view, would like to know what others think on this important matter.

Privatization has hampered the importance of the merit students. Every second person with the power of money is getting admitted to various courses through an ample amount of donation. Therefore the privatization in the education should be ignored rather the government education should be supported for the better future of India.

Praveen that is where we have to correct the system. And give quality infrastructure with upgrading of teacher. ensuring schools are not used as cowsheds, up-gradation of syllabus.... well the list is endless.

Fine, This is better taken care of in a private institution. But can we name any of these institutions to set up schools and colleges without hiking prices etc. No solution comes the easy way. There is always a price.

Privatization is a crap and everyone is well aware of it's consequences. We are not the country of riches rather we are on an average poor people who would love to save money from everywhere possible. Look it in another logical part, if the students will study in government run schools and colleges then certainly the revenue will go towards the government itself or in other sense to us and betterment of our amenities and facilities in shape of transport, education, infrastructure etc. I'd rather support the private bodies must be controlled by government for their fees structure and quality of services, undoubtedly the infrastructure may be better but they need to understand that India has a future that is no football, and they aren't authorized to deprive anyone of their rights to education.

Privitizing education in India! To quote Manoj Chaturvedi. "It is said that engaging the private sector in providing quality education across primary, secondary and post-graduate levels"  .

Education for whom? A miniscule minorty that always has its way. What about the education of the vast majority of the downtrodden who do not have basic primary education. Can anyone tell me of a giant private educational organisation who will put their money in the villages for education? Can you name any?

Privatization comes with a big baggae - money. Can majority of Indians afford it. We do have great educational institutions and that will suffice for those who need it and can pay from their pockets. If there is more demand, I am sure more quality education istitutions will spring up. That is the law of the market demand and supply.

Totally agree with Sarika...yes she is right the volume of students will increase who will not get admission in Govt institution for better education. Rich people will take the advantage of this privatization in education system. They will easily get admissions without putting their sincere efforts but what about the students who slogs and put their utmost efforts just to get admission in the good universities.

Madam Sarika, losing chance to join Govt. schools is not because of economic problem but its the problem of caste based reservations. Only a section of people are getting admissions in Govt. institutions (particularly from +2 education) others are being deprived of this privilege. So people are looking for Private institutions. Education was partially privatised. I dont believe that Govt. will completely privatise the education in future.

Well, I strongly believe that the article is in the favour of mass segment. Although I don't understand the whole concept of so called privatisation of higher education, I strongly believe education sector having humongous opportunity for an investment is what govt looking for. If I were to go with what has been enlighten in one of the comment for this article is of politician and corporate are seeking their potential in the sector, I think it’s probably be right, as all of us know both of them need large audience and education sector is not only the productive to deliver return on investment, but also is a sector which forms an opinion. All I care is that what govt is trying to do out here? If filling out investment gap is the only aim to strengthen economy then I must say this can’t be done on the stake of young generation. Why isn't govt concentrating on proper warehousing of crop that goes wasted just because of rain for that matter? We still have majority of population below 54% of literacy rate, but emphasis are just for the name sake. By privatisation of higher education are we trying to compete with so called develop countries? If at all that is the motive then I believe thoughts needs to be put on to the fact that half of the young generation of these countries can’t afford higher education just because of cost implication. Why the hell govt wants to make it impossible for the advantage we have over the world of having youngest generation by having such illogical rationale of privatisation of education. First of all there should be a need based analysis before reaching up to the conclusion of implementing or I would rather call it suggesting or proposing such plans. Has the govt analyzed current need in higher education sector? If yes where are those analysis? What is the frame work that suggests that privatisation is the best possible solution to the education sector or for that matter it is good for the economic growth (if at all this is the aim). As per the present scenario privatisation should not be allowed in the higher education reason being that government education system is the only best destination that public can afford and reach as compared to private education system which not only be the higher in terms of cost but there will be several other issues like quality of education etc. I am not completely in favour denying privatisation of education down the 20 years but I would rather emphasise the process that should take a steps to eradicate inequality in regards with letting potential candidate to fulfil her/his dreams and make it big for the country.

100% Privatization will cause discrimination; therefore, it should be implemented through Public Private Partnership. By applyingthis method, infrastructural cost would be borne by both i.e. private agency as well as government and it will be governed by government administratively within ambit and as per provisions therein under the relevant articles of the constitution of india.

 On reviewing of the situation, it would  conclude that by permitting private education in india, the rift between poor and rich in getting education has been widened.  Therefore, it is clear that privatization of education has become headache to the down-troden  and on the contrary to the nation itself.  Only the institutionalists have started to fill-up their pockets by grabbing exhorbitant money by way of fees, which is a very  sad for our nation.

No. Privatization is a threat to the balance in the education system in our country. Already we are seeing many engineering colleges admitting students based on the money they offer. The recent example of BALAJI institutions of medical sciences. The quality in education can be acquired by proper monitoring of values and ethics of the education institution. It doesn't yield anything special if its privatized. Most noticeably, The premier institutions in our country IIMs, IITs are all govt, which are known for their excellence. Still if we doubt about the transperancy in govt institutions and the corruption factor, then we can go for a collaborated approach which may yield even better results, just like many leading industries under PUBLIC-PRIVATE ownership.

What we are seeing is the ceo's and managers of all the good organisation are mostly from govt colleges and even the placement ratio in govt. engg. colleges are very higher compared to so called well certified private colleges. Since we have experienced a lot of rush of new private colleges around us we know that all that is for money none of them are good at placements deducting some execptions.

I think education should not get privatised. Its fine with the quality of education we get. But what about the people who can't afford the fees demanded by the private institutions. They are getting the basic education at least through government schools.

No doubt if any thing is  done by private organization instead government organization or by government itself, there is guarantee of quality, but there is every possibility of increase in cost  and ultimately education would not be affordable to  down troden society.

Govt. has served education since so many years but there is no result.

But, it does not mean all sector should be privatized as it will lead to no education for poor class.

We, commentators on Internet, have the finance to study in private institutes but what about lower middle class and poor class. India has half of the people below poverty line in practical.

If we want to grow our educational field that govt. should strive to improve govt. institutions.

The first step is qualitative teaching by qualified faculty. Salary hike for teachers can provide flood of good teachers in govt. field also as it is the only reason for lots of faculty in private sector.

The second step is change of evaluation scheme which is only concerned with marks today. It should be based on practice & knowledge AND not with memory power.

The third step is proper subjects. The educational system has too much irrelevant subject been given emphasis. E.g. - Mechanical Engineering has syllabus of C and C++ which is a Computer subject. Computer Engineering has subject of Maths which is not at all relevant. 10th Standard has 'History' which is never going to change and still 19th is considered as most important standard of career. 2nd Standard has subjects like Environment which is a deep subject for higher standard and irrelevant in 2nd standard.

Further, there are so many subjects which are useful but nowhere in syllabus like Designing, Writing Skills, Environment, Red Technology, Vedic Maths etc.

Govt. should incorporate heavy changes in this fields and provide free education with good infrastructural development in this sector.

Private schools are preferred by all in primary education and it is government run institutes which are much sought after in higher technical education. So the problem lies in infrastructure and quality of staff. There are no takers for engineering seats in many private colleges in Tamil Nadu this year and top rankers chose only government colleges as their first choice.

We need to identify the real problem and create more government institutions at taluk levels and simultaneously allow private players. Governmen role should be there to balance the quality and costs.

Education has already become a business field and investments are made in 'private' in this field. Day is also not too far that we will see a public issue of a "............ school limited".

Rather a bad thing to happen. Government is responsible for this. Many govt. schools suffer from non availability of teachers, staff etc. government machinary is so slow that it would take around 1 year to recruit and fill up the blanks. this is the area where private colleges rule.

If government focusses on standards of education and staff, private education may die its natural death.

I think there should be a PPP mode. Complete privatisation may again lead to costly education. Already huge amount of donations are being collected by private institutions and only few are worthy. Many students are jobless inspite of having degrees.

There are hundreds of engineering colleges but hardly 4-5 polytechnic colleges .There are less medical colleges and the FEES is not affordable for a common man. There is no proper ratio. Students are struggling , parents bothering but at the end everyones getting ditched. Every minister has a instute in his home state and he calls it a trust or charity.

I do support manoj sirs point. Privatization is needed because the infrastructure is lagging in worst conditions in institutes. The old pay scales by the govt for the teaching staff and no one is interested for faculty positions and hence affecting students only. 

Planning commision itself doesnt plan properly when it comes to eduction. They plan but the way its going on seems hopeless.

Researchers, doctors, engineers and other professions defines the fate and future of any country. I think govermant must tightly control this system as in times of saddam hussain in iraq was being done. where the education services provided to the student was worth qualtitive and even hussain's goverment provided scholarship to their student for studies in return of promise that student would never go to abroad and only serve their native country.

In my opnion if goverment wants to build its nation destiny than must take initiative in providing qualatitative education to their students. if not self than must hire the services of particular developed and matured country. So that students will not run towards other continents and belive in  their country people.
