How not to reform education
Cutting resources and curbing freedom of critical voices are definite examples of how not to reform education
Delhi University is set to achieve a unique feat of sorts in the coming academic session. Each batch of its current undergraduate programme students would have experienced a different kind of course structure. Those who enter the third year were four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP) students when they took admission. The annulment of FYUP was one of the first policy decisions of the Narendra Modi government. Last year’s admissions were under the usual three-year semester system-based undergraduate programme. After the vice-chancellor’s bulldozing of all dissent against the choice-based credit system (CBCS) last month, the forthcoming batch of students will be under a different course structure.
