Mentors for educational institutions
Education is one of our fundamental rights recognized by our constitution. But it is still a matter of great regret that we have completely failed to ensure the quality of our education in most of our educational institutions. What lie behind our deteriorating quality of education are the illegal interference of politics and unethical practice of favour giving by the authority, in the recruitment policy in particular. In many institutions, the illiterate persons head the authority. Sometimes the managing committees are constituted of persons whose educational qualifications are below the SSC level. Recently, we have come to know from the report of a national newspaper that the chief of the college committee was the night guard of a bank. So it becomes a matter of great concern when the authority evaluates an educational institution as part of their business project. An illiterate businessman can be a patron, but he can never be the head of an educational institution. Only a qualified and educated governing body can determine, manage and frame a fair recruitment policy for the welfare of an educational institution.
