Improved Access to Quality Education

Educational and training facilities have been increasing rapidly. However, access, affordability, and quality remain serious concerns. Employability is also an issue. How can we improve the quality and the utility of our education, while ensuring equity and affordability?

Should vocational streams have the same access to higher education as academic streams? If so, how?

How can faculty of high international standing be attracted to such institutions? What kind of incentives should be provided? What kind of institutional/governance structure should be devised for this purpose?

1) Improved Research Funding in Education Institutions
2) Single window selection for Ph.D scholars across India
3) Decent Scholarship for Ph.D research scholars
4) Incentive for research publication in International Journals
5) Government should hire only candidates with research exposure
6) No money should be involved in appointment for research positions including assistant professors, associate professors and professors
7) UGC should mandate all Universities to hire only Ph.D holders
8) Colleges can be allowed to hire NET/GATE qualified candidates
Above changes will improve the research culture in Universities and will result in more attractive option for International standard faculty. Simple thumb rule is never compromise on appointments in Government funded Universities.

Incentives: Funding for more research and additional incentives for research publication and patents

In my opinion, among the many possible options, there can be at the minimum 2 steps to have faculty of high international standing at Indian educational institutions.

Firstly, the present faculty at the top class institutions need to be given international exposure. For this, the faculty should be encouraged to present their work at national/international conferences. At these conferences, besides being able to present papers/presentations/reports, the faculty members will have the valuable opportunity to network with their peers and form collaborations and partnerships for research projects and other research related endeavors. A special focus should be given emphasizing the importance of publishing in journals of international repute.

Secondly, to encourage the young graduates to participate in research endeavors. For this, the current professors must take initiatives to involve their students in a variety of research projects. As a young graduate, I see the present structure of higher educational institutions as not attractive or welcoming. Of course better salary levels, international exposure and recognition for the research will be instrumental in retaining and bringing talent in academics.

Finally, Indian scholars studying abroad should be the prime target for recruiting faculty in the institutions of high international standing. Reverse brain drain is the way to go!

The subject is very relevent to today' s situation.Most of the distinguished professors look for world class research facilities in the concerned university or institution, which we are lacking. Government has to spend a lot on setting up those facilities, which they already has started in the form of IISER's .hope they continue to do that.

Government must empower the institution of national interest to hire and fire the faculties and only institution can have the final wording on salary and other perks offer to the faculties. They must have a independent establishment on this regard. Government should not interfere in this regard. The institutions must generate their own revenue through research works/consultancy and should not depends upon government grants. As of now the government have the wording over the salary structured offered in such institutions. Government must give a 5 year duration to generate their own revenue for faculties salary and other perks. We may fallow the Ivy league universities model. they must encourage the private entities to establish the institute of national importance based on non- profit scheme. The faculties must have remuneration based upon their research works done by him/her and teaching feedbacks by students.

1) Higher Pay, Better Designation, Staff quarters with Good Schooling, good Medical facilities along with 24x7 transport to the nearest Railway/Bus Station
2) Academic freedom.
3) Benefits (CL/EL etc) to be given on par with their counterparts in Govt Universities.
4) Less administrative overload.
5) Enough grants for conference registrations and Travel(at least two in a year).
6) Workload as per AICTE Norms.

India must be willing to dream big and most importantly be open to ideas based on how other successful nations have done.
The pdfs from the following link shows tiny Abu Dhabi's economic vision for 2030.
Perhaps we can copy some ideas from them.

Its not only money that is required to attract top class faculty, its academic freedom that attracts in genuine cases. We should encourage multidisciplinary subjects and we should form independent governing bodies for Central Universities, IITs and IIMs and should make them to compete with each other in attracting faculty, industry based research and international scholars.

We should also learn from western countries how they are able to create intellectual wealth. We should not go by strict rules and regulations, I don't think Louis De Brogile could have shifted from History to Physics if he were born in India or Venkatraman Ramakrishnan could have shifted from Physics to Biochemistry if had continued to stay in India.

People should be encouraged to pursue science at any age or any background without compromising on quality. Please do away with all these idiotic rules like Physics should be your major subject in case if you wish to pursue doctoral studies, this will create intellectual wealth then there will be no problem in having faculty with international standing.

Agree with the post above. In this day and age of interdisciplinary studies we must be allowed to take projects in various fields and allow to collaborate with different labs for attracting research funds.

To excel , continuous LEARNING IS A MUST. For most faculty in colleges and universities this is just confined to refresher courses. It is imperative that faculty be allowed to work in labs with mentors in their field: this will ensure overall excellence in research in our country.

All National Professors and eminent scientists should make time for mentoring of in service faculty. It could be for a week or a month but this type of exposure will enthuse and create a atmosphere for continued excellence. Why a teacher from Nagour, Rajasthan cannot learn under a Prof in CCMB Hyderabad is my question? Presently only brilliant young scientists are being encouraged and admitted for mentoring. This academic casteism should change.

In my opinion, human behaviour is very much linked with the surroundings so the planning commission should take neccessary steps to develop the infrastructure of the government schools.
Firstly, employing educated faculty is the matter, in order to achieve this a high level training program should be organised and the inefficient teachers should be asked to resign and the sincere sikhshya sahayaks should be promoted, and when these steps are taken in a stringent manner a good number of educated people would be attracted towards the system of government schools.
