Self-Financing Arts and Science College Teaching in Kerala

Mohammed Shafeer K.P.

Abstract


Self financing colleges initiated to rejuvenate the quality of higher education and  to alleviate the burden of education on public exchequer had failed to meet its dreamt expectations as education turned to be a money making endeavour. Arts and science college education in Kerala retarded the intellectual growth of the state as majority of the colleges in different universities of the state belonged to the self-financing category. Teaching, research and extension activities in higher education institutions diminished to great depths when the private managements and stakeholders concentrated on profit providing minimum infrastructure and facilities, appointing low standard or substandard teachers with minimum salary and discouraging extracurricular activities of the colleges.


Keywords


Kerala, quality education, higher education, private managements, self financing colleges.
