�Effective strategy needed to attract more students to Govt schools�

By City Correspondent

GUWAHATI, Nov 9 - �The State government should have to implement a proper and effective strategy to stop the decreasing number of students in government schools. The problem has been created because there are some drawbacks in the teaching system. So we have to correct those issues to make the education system vibrant,� said educationist Virender Kapoor in a conversation with The Assam Tribune here today.

Kapoor, an alumnus of IIT Bombay, was the director of a prestigious business school under the Symbiosis umbrella. He also holds a masters degree in international relations. With more than twenty-five books to his credit, he has emerged as a leading think-tank in human behaviour.

Kapoor, who was here to deliver a lecture on how to make schools vibrant through effective leadership at the Don Bosco Institute, during the conversation with The Assam Tribune, also pointed out that public-private partnership will be needed to make a vibrant education system.

�In government schools, there is mostly lack of accountability. On the other hand, in private schools teaching staff dedicate themselves to ensure quality in teaching and learning process, because if they cannot do it then there is a chance of losing the job. But in government schools, there is no such fear among the teaching staff,� Kapoor said.

He also alleged that government rules made for its employees are also responsible for such a situation because they fail to ensure accountability among employees. In such a situation even assessment drives like �Gunotsav� will not prove worthwhile in reforming the system, he cautioned.

�The assessment drive is good. But I don�t think that the result of the drive will make any change, because there is no system to punish the teaching staff who show poor results,� he added.

In the meantime, the educationist said that government should subsidise the fee system for poor but talented students of society enable them to pursue education in private schools having excellent teaching records.

�The public sector has failed in every aspect in this country. Because when a person gets a permanent government job, he is most likely to start neglecting his duty. This is because there is no rule to kick him out from the job due to negligence in duty. It is the main problem in this country,� Kapoor added.
