After the recent incidents of cheating came to light, Bihar's image in the field of education has taken a major beating. This news may further take down its reputation. It may sound interesting yet is a truth that a teacher of Botany is serving as the executive of Patna University (PU's) Institute of Library and Information Science and a chemistry educator is heading the PU biochemistry office. Further, an educator of work force administration and modern relations division is heading the postgraduate course in country administration.
Despite the fact that various professional and self-financing courses have been presented in PU amid the most recent couple of decades, not a solitary personnel has been delegated for any of these courses. All the professional courses are being overseen by their guardian divisions. Thusly, either instructors from general courses are facilitating and showing the students or some asset persons are being outsourced. Furthermore, much of the time, the asset persons utilized by the course chiefs and organizers are not sufficiently capable to grant quality training, said a senior PU educator.
PU's Applied financial matters and trade office has been running MBA course throughout the previous quite a few years, however there is not a solitary instructor of the administration workforce. Essentially, the PU Institute of Library and Information Science has been running a library science course throughout the previous three decades, yet it is yet to get even a solitary consistently designated employee. Courses like MCA and BCA are additionally running in the college without a solitary full-time employee of software engineering.
A couple of years back, the chancellor's report panel had purportedly suggested for arrangement of no less than three center employees in each professional or self-financing course, however this suggestion is yet to be executed. Neither did the colleges approach the state government for authorizing posts for the recently began professional courses, nor did the administration ever try to start measures for enhancing the nature of training.
A year ago, the Bihar Public Service Commission publicized more than 3,000 posts of right hand teachers in diverse subjects for all the colleges of the state. In any case, not a solitary post was publicized for any professional course anyplace.
For most foundations, self-financing courses have get to be cash printing machines. Poor and exemplary students are pulled in to these alleged employment situated courses and pay a large number of rupees for finishing the course. In any case, at last, they are frustrated as they barely land any position subsequent to doing the course.
"Students are admitted to professional courses yet they are not gave quality instruction. Research facility offices are not up to the imprint and thus we are not ready to do viable classes. Hypothesis classes are perpetually connected with by contract educators, the majority of whom neglect to fulfill the students," said a biotechnology student of B N College.
Around a few years back, the state training office had requested that all the colleges outfit subtle elements of all the self-financing courses keep running by them so that there may be some consistency in the course structure, charge and students' admission and a base standard of instruction for the students selected in these courses. In any case, any subsequent activity in such manner is still anticipated.
At some point back, PU had chosen to set up a different directorate of professional (self-financing) courses with a perspective to enhancing the execution of the considerable number of courses running at undergrad and postgraduate levels. The proposed directorate should screen the working of every one of these courses - more than 60 in number - and get consistency in their scholarly projects and charge structure. However, this choice is yet to be executed.
