Is Smriti Irani listening ?

Apparently , no one ( or very few ) want to get into teaching

This is obvious from the number of faculty vacancies in AICTE approved institutions , as shown below :

Faculty…………………………………… Teachers Required…….  % age Vacancy

  • Applied Arts & Crafts……………………….  2,678…………………….. 56
  • Architecture and Town Planning………11,762…………………….. 51
  • Engineering & Technology……………..5,29,543……………………..28
  • Hotel Mgmt & Catering………………………..3245……………………… 43
  • Management……………………………………….61,610……………………..27
  • MCA…………………………………………………..  26,714……………………. 15
  • Pharmacy…………………………………………….31,421……………………. 20

Why such a poor state of affairs  ?

According to leading Educationists , some of the reasons are  :

  • Poor salaries in teaching profession
  • Stringent Quality Norms
  • Archaic Service Conditions
  • Little scope to earn thru consultancy
  • Very little Industry-Interaction / Internship
  • Poor Research facilities

Even as Smriti starts up a dialogue among the Stakeholders ( Students / Teachers / Educationists / Administrators etc ) ,in respect of formulation of a NEW EDUCATION POLICY ,  she would do well to frame an ONLINE QUESTIONNAIRE ( Yes / No : True / False : Multiple Choice ) and upload it on her Web site for people to participate in thousands

What is wrong with our current state of Education and what needs to be done to fix it , can only emerge from such a REFERUNDUM
