Positioning India on the Global Education Map
He was speaking at the national conference on ‘Positioning India on the Global Education Map’ in New Delhi.
In higher education, he said, India has taken tremendous steps to improve college education by making accreditation process more scientific and tough.
The Minister said that teacher is the most important component to increase quality education in the colleges and universities. He said that attendance should increase in the classroom because of teacher’s skills not because of the infrastructure of the college.
He further said that India is lacking good teachers in the institutions because good people are not becoming teachers. “We have to attract good people for teaching profession and we have to give respect to teachers; then only we can create a good learning environment in the institutions. Best teachers attract students to the institution not the best infrastructure,” he added.
