Stopping coaching business

The Daily Star report titled 'Curbs on coaching' on 15th June, focusing on the education ministry's new guidelines "Policy 2012 to stop teachers from doing coaching business in educational institutions," is very timely. Two important factors are mentioned in the policy: 1) weaker students will get extra time from their teachers and 2) stopping of private coaching by teachers.
The disparity between the rich and poor students will be removed from the educational institutions if these guidelines are followed. But will it be implemented as suggested? Almost all teachers, both government and non-government, are involved in coaching which is now a very prosperous business. They give emphasis on private tuitions rather than classroom teachings.
I remember one of my teachers tutoring the students by recorded cassettes. Most of the students used to go to the teachers for collecting suggestions for exams rather than improving their lessons. The poor students are most affected by this situation as they cannot afford the high fees.
This guideline is therefore a good means to remove disparity between the poor and rich students in the educational institutions, if implemented properly.
