Concern and Problems Regarding Privatization of Education

 Factors leading to growth of Private Institutions in Education

Concept of Privatization in Indian Education System

To ensure effectiveness of curriculum transaction in classroom

Although privatization has paced the growth in educational system as discussed in previous articles, there are few concerns which should not be overlooked. They are:-

1)      Under representation of the weaker sections: Education should be holistic in nature. But the marginalized sections still struggle for entry in private institutions due to high fee structure. Thus, education once again becomes a privilege to be enjoyed by the elite class.

2)      Quality of Education; It is general notion that private schools /colleges provide quality education when compared to government schools/colleges. However, when it comes for higher and professional education the government run centres of excellence like IIT’s, IIM’s, AIIM etc are still the first choice of students.

3)      Commercialization of Education: Treating education as a business to get maximum returns has led to commercialization of education. Many private educational institutions charge hefty fees while students do not get full value for their money. Teachers are compensated inadequately, hired and fired at the owner’s will. Even teachers without proper qualification are recruited. All these also affect the quality of education. Infact, these institutions exist only for reaping money.

Therefore, it can be said that privatization is important to expand education qualitatively as well as quantitatively. The government should take both the pros and cons of privatization and encourage it to achieve economic development while discouraging commercialization so that all sections of society can benefit.
