Universities need to be brought under rating system
Monday, 28 April 2008

With the growing number of universities in the country, a system for evaluating performances of the higher seats of learning, public and private, has become urgently necessary in the country. This will enable the people to know the quality of each of these educational institutions. A silent competition among the universities will then follow and improve their respective position. Students and guardians will be able to compare the ratings of the universities to select one of their choices. Dr Akbar Ali Khan, chairman of the Regulatory Reforms Commission and a former adviser of the caretaker government, said these at a roundtable in the city on Friday. He wisely suggested to introduce a rating system and to publish that rating every six months or a year. The country is infested with corruption. Almost nobody can have any work done without bribing officials concerned. We have emerged as on of the most corrupt nations for the past few years. We must eliminate this widespread corruption for our dignity and survival. Hundreds of universities have been set up in the country within a decade or so. But almost none of them can give the students quality education. Many of the so-called universities have proper atmosphere either. They even lack necessary infrastructures and teaching staff. Students and guardians spend huge sum of money at these institutions and get almost no education in return. It is worth mentioning here that these private universities have been set up on the pattern of western countries. But they have no rating system like their models. The government should compel all universities to introduce a rating system immediately.
