Corruption In Universities Shows India's Fall Back

Level Of Corruption In Education Sector
Corruption in Education has a severe consequences which include A high drop-out rate which increases at high levels of poverty Low quality teaching to poor achievement.


Universities are supposed to be distinguished centres of excellence. But sadly, reports that have been emanating from our universities lately show the opposite side of them. This week it can into light that some unscrupulous staff in the academic registrar's office at Makerere University have been manipulating students examination results and grades most likely for financial gain. Apparently, the college of Business and Management blew the whistle after discovering that several results submitted to the academic registration that had been altered.

This state of affairs is very worrying as it clearly suggests degrees and diplomas are for sale in our universities. It puts the reputation of our education standards at great risk and promotes a warped mentality among the youth that one need not struggle for good grades when they can simply purchase them.

This shows how low we have sunk. I a Country where you can buy a degree, you can virtually buy anything, a job, a tender, a policeman, a magistrate, a teacher, a doctor, etc..with all these corruption goes on unabated. But, bribery, must have no place in our universities. It's most unfair that some students do their best to pass their exams while others party their way through the course an still manage to purchase good grades. To fight that, universities must get harsh on not only staff but also students found guilty of such impropriety.

Corruption in Education System means a system that is susceptible to an adverse political, religious and ethnic influence Deepened inequality between rich and poor, preventing entire generations from pursuing a meaningful future amongst other.

Some probable solutions to such act is funding (but not the provisioning) of universal education up to high school level. Providing an independent regulatory authority for the higher education sector so that private firms can complete fairly on a level playing field. And providing educational loan guarantees to bank.

Well, to be frank, Corruption has not left even the education field in a pure stage. Education is a much respected aspect, but still there are many corruptions in the field of education. It is true that not everyone is involved in the corruptions. But these corruptions have made people to doubt about the entire field of education.

In such a case, when a university boasts about its great achievement, facilities or as a best institute/university to be well noted among others in a country/state. Can you believe That? How will you judge a university? What do you say about this issue. How can we stop corruption in Education Field? Who do you think are the main people behind such acts. If this continues, Will education have the same scope later? Share your views with us.
