B.Ed colleges Students denied from exams
The Bangalore University Task Force on Teacher Education on Monday, in its final report on B.Ed. colleges affiliated to Bangalore University, declared that students of the blacklisted B.Ed. colleges of the academic year 2011-12 are not allowed to take up their second semester exams.

Referring to a Supreme Court order that students of colleges without affiliation to the university should not be allowed to sit for the exams for the ongoing year, the Task Force urged the Registrar (Evaluations) to apply the dictum to students of nine colleges.

"The university need not show any mercy either towards the students (of blacklisted colleges) or to the institutions having made the admission without any rights for the academic year 2012-13," it stated.

The Task Force recommended that in future, Bangalore University must provide a copy of the National Council for Teacher Education norms to the members of the Local Inquiry Committees prior to their inspection.

The Bangalore University Task Force on B.Ed colleges has recommended to the State government to constitute a monitoring and supervisory board to supervise teacher education colleges.

The proposed supervisory board comprising representatives from the Department of Collegiate Education (DCE), Department of State Education Research and Training (DSERT), Education Department and universities in the State would co-ordinate with all the universities and with the Southern Regional Committee of National Council for Teachers' Education (NCTE).

The Task Force submitted its final report to Bangalore University Vice-Chancellor Prof B Thimme Gowda on Monday.

The university recently permitted several of the colleges where irregularities were found to conduct the exam this year (in June), on "humanitarian grounds".

Further, the report recommended the government to limit the number of teacher education colleges to about 130 and ensure these colleges comply with the NCTE norms.

"In the previous academic year, out of the total available 17,400 seats in 349 unaided private colleges, only 8,381 seats were filled.

Not more than 1,100 teachers are required for these colleges and monitoring and supervisory board should take care of the appointment of faculty to these colleges," the report observed. All irregular, malfunctioning and defunct colleges under the university should be closed down from 2012-13, it added.

Recently, Bangalore University had decided to cancel the approval of 70 B.Ed colleges for the academic year 2013-14.

Out Of the 95 B.Ed. colleges, only 25 can now apply for renewal of affiliation from the coming academic year.

Colleges such as KLE Society's College of Education, Acharya College of Education, M S Ramaiah College of Education will lose affiliation next year while Jnana Vikas College of Education, Rajiv Gandhi College of Education and others have lost affiliation from 2011-12.
