DUTA Continues its Evaluation Boycott even after a month



Evaluation Boycott

Delhi University Teachers Association, DUTA has decided to continue the Evaluation Boycott by adopting resolutions in favour of boycott by majority. DUTA has categorically demanded that the UGC’s Roster Notification of 5th March must be put in abeyance to ensure that no working ad-hoc or temporary teacher is displaced in the new academic session.

DUTA has been boycotting the evaluation for a month now to protest the new faculty reservation mechanism in universities and a host of other issues. In a General Body Meeting, the DUTA decided to continue its evaluation boycott by adopting a resolution, the teachers’ body said.

Meanwhile, the university again appealed to the teachers to end their evaluation boycott in the larger interest of students. This is the third time in two weeks that the varsity has issued such an appeal to the teachers

It has also demanded the immediate notification of revised allowances for teachers and workers as per 7 CPC. On other pending issues related to the counting of past services for promotions and absorption/regularization of all ad-hock and temporary teachers, DUTA has demanded urgent meetings with the VC that he has evaded so far. The MHRD and DU Administration have connived to prolong the suffering and anguish of teachers and attack the foundations of public-funded higher education.

Private Sector to Fund and Aid in boosting Higher Education in India



Private Fund

Higher Education in India might receive a significant monetary boost as the government is planning to rope in private companies and high-net individuals (HNIs) to finance and promote higher education across the country. The ministry of human resource development has prepared a draft of the plan and will present it before the Union cabinet for consideration.

Two government officials have stated the plan will be implemented through the higher education funding agency (HEFA), a non-banking financial company, under the human resource ministry.

Roping in HNIs and private companies might lead to improvements in higher education in India, and government officials seemed optimistic. “Bringing in industries or industrialists or high net-worth individuals for HEFA equity will have three benefits. One, structured and clean private funding. Two, outside experience of managing higher education funding. And three, curb chances of manipulation at the institutional level,” a government official told Live Mint.

In February 2018, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that the education sector was a priority for the Indian government.

Why does this matter

In 2014,reports says that a mere 10% of students have access to higher education in the country. The article cited a report by a development economist Abusaleh Shariff, and mentioned that residents of Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, and West Bengal have the worst access to higher education.

Report details that lax quality and a lack of accountability and widespread innovation is what ails higher education in India. Indian higher education seems to be suffering from a two-fold problem of quality and quantity. The Indian government seems to think that privatizing education is the only solution. However, along with private investment, the government also should look to invest more in education. India’s spending on education is much lower than that of other countries.

Perhaps some degree of privatization is the only way out for better higher education in India. However, along with adequate funds, the government must ensure the funds are being allocated to improve the quality of teaching offered to Indian students, thereby, improving accountability of the system.
