There is a general opinion that reforms in Education imply bringing new courses from different domains of careers of life and introducing them with trained manpower. The Indian reality with regard to education is something very different to the ideal one and thus in spite of having so many publicans private universities, the country is struggling to create quality manpower and the gap is quite an index to remember.
UP CM Yogi Adityanath, who has always been labelled as the poster guy, is a true hardliner as far as education is concerned. He seems to be the perfect man to diagnose the disease of education and truly the steps undertaken by the UP government certainly calls for better introspection. First and foremost, copying in the examination hall has stopped and more than 1.8 lakh students were absent on the first day of the UP Board Exams.
Security forces have been alerted to ensure no exam malpractices are allowed in the compound. The huge number of students who didn’t file application also included 53,100 high schools and 1.27 lakh, intermediate students. As the UP government has installed CCTV cameras in the classroom and also deployed STF and local intelligence, the students who generally rely on exam malpractices didn’t even make any attempt at sitting in the examination.
Certainly, there is no denying the fact that the Yogi Adityanath model of UP government can be an ideal one for the whole country. Not only it will help to curb the education mafia but also help in building a quality human resource with the desired skill set.
In other words, if malpractices in examination procedure can be screened, the whole approach towards quality and contemporary education in India will do justice to the deserving students. The Yogi Adityanath government deserves all the applause for taking such a bold stance.
