Corruption in Education Shops - School Management & Chor-Bhakt Parents Tango

Anti Corruption • 8 January 2015

British & much of its nationalism hyping commonwealth doesn't care about public education anymore, no national library system.. replaced by populist jives, private mobile apps as knowledge tanks, and paid media sermons. Bribe to admission, bribe to examiner, bribe to teaching shop, bribe to #success certificate, bribe to employer, bribe to fame, bribe to gain wealth, bribe to marry, reproduce, repeat, reach the heaven #JioLala #bhakts

India’s education system is mired in corruption and a high rate of teacher absenteeism in the country is a key factor for it according to many studies, and moreover gaining knowledge is last priority for students, parents, teachers and administrators. 25% teacher absenteeism in India is among the highest in the world, second only after Uganda that has a higher rate. The global average of teacher absenteeism is about 20%.

It is just becoming a deliberately manufactured earning system for profit of private companies doing business of entrance tests and other jugaad - cronies in education institutes earn thousands of crores, degree certificates are always on rent or sale like any other commodity for snatching lucrative jobs, private or public. Teacher absenteeism does not just affect quality of education; it is also a huge drain on resources resulting in the wastage of education funds of Indian citizens. Politics in teacher appointments and transfers is a major reason for teacher absenteeism.

The study identifies the absence of well established criteria for teacher recruitment, a uniform policy on promotion, remuneration and deployment as some of the main reasons identified for teacher absenteeism. In Bihar, two of every five teachers were reported absent, the figure in UP was reported to be one-third of the total teachers, most other states are not great either. In some states like Kerala / West Bengal figures were reported lower.

Teachers also believe highly in lucrative private tutoring practice - the imported knowledge trading culture of capitalist profiteers. It does not complement any learning at all and leads to corruption and injection of graft mindsets into childhood and future of the nation itself! The practice of ghost teachers and involvement of teachers in mismanagement of schools were other gray areas identified in the Indian education system. For example, out of 5000+ schools in Delhi, most charge more than IITs for nursery admissions while enjoying public funded properties and donations.

Another indictment of the sorry state of Indian education was the view held by students that cheating in examinations is their traditional right, well in line with their parents lust & greed for profits of success at any cost. In Indian universities, cheating is now well established. Cuts for manipulating entrance tests ranges between 3000 to few millions for popular and high ROI courses such as computer science, medicine and engineering.

Bribe giving parents are even more corrupt who are brainwashed to not think what is so special about hyped and branded education shops that has an administration and profiteers openly promoting values that would severely harm future social fabric of whole communities and mutate our liberal culture of acquiring knowledge altogether. A school that accepts donations is a worse place for human minds to attain its fullest potential through value based real learning. Schools are over-rated by stupid parents (lured by smart Public Relation acts) thinking of getting into one school vs another as a big deal. Next time someone asks for a bribe or donation simply send your kid to another school or invite more turbulent immoral times for the very next generations you are ready to compromise, chanting chalta hai!

Most of us got where we are solely not by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps. We got here because somebody - a parent, a teacher, a crony or a few well-wishers bent down and helped us pick up our boots. We are very clever & prompt in finding shortcuts to quick bucks, gratifications and mockery of laws, regulations etc. We were independent in terms of the technological Know How & Know Why only in areas like Nuclear Science, Space Science & other few that too because of the great Indian scientific minds who stayed back in India to work for development of the scientific progress instead of running behind money.

How many Nobel Laureates after Sir C. V. Raman we have in India (not talking about those migrated to some other countries & won the Nobel Prizes)... unfortunately no other than him because our education system respects the muggers, filled with politics & most of the educational institutions are managed by politicians & industrial cronies with intentions of making quick bucks, right to loot money. So instead of putting some well intention & well directed efforts to correct these basic problems we feel happy to criticize decisions of the other nations.

We import defense equipment, engine & other automotive technologies, bullet train technology & a lot many from USA, Israel, France, Japan, Germany? On Make In India, do we think that just by manufacturing in India will help us to learn & understand 'KNOW WHY' also in addition to 'KNOW HOW'? Yes this drive will create large number of job opportunities but it will not help us to learn & understand 'KNOW WHY' behind these products & technologies unless we start putting sincere and parallel hard efforts to "REALLY" embed knowledge, revamp the whole education system not merely some BRAND or celebrity craze campaigns!

Anti Corruption

Literally Non Cooperation Movements by Central govt via Saffron Governor Generals for power profits at next EVM melas. "Have you ever heard of any democratic system in which a bureaucrat tells his minister: I can't tell you the number of vacant posts of teachers in govt schools ?" says Delhi Dy CM. Democracy? We're ruled by few teams of "Bhakt India Company". How will the so-called babu alias IAS jugadu gangs earn the crores in commissions plus development cess and gets promoted and transfer back to the elite gymkhana of white-money gods cum branded leaders for the hypnotised herds of blind followers? अंधेर नगरी चौपट राजा - समाज को आईना

    Noted and arranging for fee deposit next week. Its also not correct to treat every parent's wealth & sources of income with same set of assumptions.. every child have right to education and belong to future societies, we do not treat them as investments for personal profits nor should allow education shops play with cultural engineering producing jugaadu replicas compatible with like-minded recruitment grapevines.
