Education Sector Hotline February 23, 2016

Schooled In Socialism

Of late, we have had a lot of legislative and stakeholder activism in the K-12 and higher education space in India. States like Tamil Nadu, Rajashthan & Maharashtra has seen the most of it. This primarily includes Fee Regulation of private unaided schools. Similarly the government is in the process of formulating its National Education Policy. Technology is now playing a very important role in the delivery of education but our laws and regulations are archaic and in need of radical change. The entire philosophy behind state intervention needs to be looked at. At the same time the state needs to focus on improving the government school and college system.

This article addresses some of these concerns and proposes some ideas for the way ahead.
