Reforms for Qualitative Improvement in Higher Education
All of us who have worried about the progress of higher education in India have received many comments and criticisms about things that went wrong. The report on university education set targets for the development of higher education in the country. In formulating these objectives, the Ramakrishnan University Teaching Commission (1948-1949) formulated it as follows: "The most important and urgent reform of education is to transform it, to strive for linking it to the life, needs and aspirations of the people and, consequently, making it the powerful instrument of social, economic and cultural transformation necessary for the achievement of national goals. To this end, education must be developed to increase productivity, achieve social and national integration Accelerate the process of modernization and cultivate social, moral and spiritual values. "The National Higher Education Policy of 1986 reflects this vision of Radhakrishnan and Kothari. The Commission has five main objectives for higher education: increased access, equal access (or equity), quality and excellence, relevance and promotion. Social values The policy orientations and actions covered by the 1992 "Program of Action" have been developed in such a way as to translate these objectives into practice, giving importance to the first three objectives, namely the access, equitable access and quality.
