One Awdhesh Singh, a retired Indian Revenue Service Officer, has put this TRUTH on WhatsApp and is appreciated by all those who love India and wish for the qualitative improvement of our college education. Remember a leading industrialist bemoaning that a large number of our engineering graduates are unemployable? Now read this WhatsApp.—Ed
Imagine that you are appointed a Principal/Director of a college which is notorious for cheating and poor quality of education.
You find that most students cheat during examination with the support of teachers and do quite well in exams. The result of the college has been always more than 90% in recent years.
You are a person with principles and hence you decide to totally eliminate cheating from the examination. You install CCTV cameras in all examination halls and take actions against the students and the teachers who are found engaged in cheating.
The result is that cheating is totally stopped in examinations.
However, the performance of your college dips drastically and less than 20% students pass. This has been the worst performance in the history of your college.
You now face flak from all sides.
Students are angry because they failed due to your strictness.
Teachers are angry because their track record got spoiled due to you.
Trustees of college are angry because the result of their college has taken a beating under your charge.
This is what is happening in India right now.
