Education sector in India is divided between academia and the industry, between public and private and between old and the young. We can’t change the education sector without involving the parents and children in the process.
The role of the private sector in transforming education is important. Private sector has to transform content so that it empowers the country. Currently we have many discrepancies in the education sector in terms of quality of education and demand and supply of institutions.
When it comes to education, lot of new funds would be required to bridge the gap between demand and supply. Private sector can be a good source of funds for the education space. However, the government looks at private sector with doubt. Regulatory hurdles have been created to prevent the private sector from blossoming in the education space.
The private sector should not focus only on their own profits, because then they will not be able to make progress in a field like education, which many regard as being completely altruistic. When the education in a private institution is not good and the employability of the students who graduate is not there, then these institutions are bound to close down.
