Today's students are tomorrow's citizenry. They should be taught good values and be taught to make sound judgements. Students should be given chance to engage in debating different viewpoints.They should be given space for discussion in schools. Educational institutions should not just teach how to conform but teach to think critically, to think rationally and to think logically.No private organisation making profits is interested in that. Engineering graduates from private colleges know no engineering. For the money they had paid, they got degrees. They have to be retained to make them job worthy. So privatisation of educational institutions has not worked in India.Knowledge corpus is doubling every five years; so if one finishes engineering college in four years, he would be outdated as soon as he leaves college. He has to relearn his subjects, and constantly update himself on the latest developments.There are efforts taken to bring foreign educational institutions so that quality will come out of competition. Here there is already many private firms competing with one another. There is no need for more.
While vocational colleges may train candidates for job market, universities can train for higher research. Teacher training institutes have to be improved first, so that we have good teachers.Good teachers will mould whole generation of employable engineers, doctors and professors.
