The SLC results were published last Monday. 69 percent failed. People are shocked.
Who is responsible for this mess? Will any action be taken against the people who did not carry out their responsibilities properly, or against schools which charge a lot but do not provide quality education? Are those who disrupt education by calling for random bandhs going to take responsibility? What about those who set question papers without going through the syllabus? Many students are without books even midway through the academic year. Who is going to take responsibility for this? Will action be taken against schools where not a single student passed?
Educational experts say that the courses were revised last year, but instructors did not do their homework after these changes. If this weren't bad enough, there were all the bandhs, hartals and lockouts. Earlier schools used to teach 220 days a year. This fell to 180 in the last few years and this past academic year did not even cross 100 days.
