Is education a commodity for sale?In recent days, educational system goes through a dirty path. Yesterday in a news channel I saw an interesting news. Kerala's state president of students party KSU said that the minister of education play a dirty game with his party. Here interesting thing is both the minister and KSU president are in same party. Our educational minister is in muslim leag. But KSU is a students party of UDF.
I do not like to said about politics. I just indicate the situation of our state. 2 years back fees for goverment engineering seat in a management college was only 35000 rupees. But in this year that fees increases to more than double of earlier fees. This cannot absorb most of the middle and low class family. Why this happens? Now each and every year the number of educational institutes increasing. That is quantity of education is increasing each year. But in each institute they utilise the maxima of demand of student. They sold their education at high cost. Yes today the education is an commodity to sale. I hope a day will come, and that day all of them will understand that the education is not a commodity to sale, it is a valuable one more than money and it is to serve and share.
