last week The Hindu In an interview with the newspaper, the top bureaucrat defended the central government’s decisions in this year’s budget and said that even if the government invests more money, the quality of education in the country will not improve.
Arguing that there are enough school teachers in the country, he said, “It’s not about quantity in education, it’s about quantity. Whether teachers go to school or not. Do they teach well? Do they make the child do homework? Don’t they just pass the child but also see whether the child has learned or not? It’s not about money, so really nothing will be achieved by investing more money in education.”
He added that allocation of more funds for higher education would also only be “a SOP for the conscience of intellectuals that we are doing something for it”. While it is necessary that “depoliticization of the university” should be done.
Criticizing the remarks, the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) on Friday said they are not only contrary to the National Education Policy 2020, but also “ignore the issues brought forth by PM Narendra Modi regarding the education sector”. .
ABVP said, “The comments of the Union Finance Secretary on budgetary allocation for education in the interview shows his lack of proper understanding on matters related to education and is highly irresponsible.”
