PRIVATIZATION OF EDUCATION SECTOR - THERE IS A NEED?
The society need to debate as to whether government needs to permit private companies to undertake education at school level and for higher education. The current compulsion of a society or a trust can be done away with and an option can be provided for profit motive education sector. The private sector can be mandated to provide 33% seats for weaker section of the society. No tax concession and land at market rates. Even world Class University can be permitted in private sector. This can be coupled with an Education regulator and national level cenralised examination Boards for all major qualifications.
The government also needs to heavily invest in effective and efficient education in a big way to ensure skill building for all sections of the society, in a competitive manner.
