‘Self-financing sector ,a centre of exploitation’

Self-financing sector in Kerala is exploiting both students  and teachers,alleged Kerala Self-financing College Staff Association in a press meet today.

“The quality of higher education in Kerala is deteriorating as the self-financing engineering,arts and science colleges are moving in a wrong track.’

“It is high time the government take necessary steps to protect highly qualified teachers ,non-teaching staff and students from the hands of corporate managements,who are only concerned about profit-making. Many such institutions are not keeping academic excellence.”

“Some managements are demanding huge donation from poor students in certain courses and exploiting their dream of earning a degree.”

In Kerala, around 50,000 students are studying in 989 self-financing colleges across the state  including arts and science,engineering,medical,pharmacy and teacher education colleges.

The government had appointed a three member commission under the leadership of Ad.K.K.Dinesan  to study the state of self-financing colleges.

As per the commission,self-financing college students must have all freedom as in the government and aided colleges. Teachers must get decent salary and other benefits.

However,the report has not yet been implemented.

But, the self-financing colleges are not providing ESI,PF benefits to its staff.

“Most of the staff are working just like slaves”-the Association pointed out.

 

The organisation will conduct convention at Kozhikode town hall on August 4 to discuss various issues in this sector.

Universities  are also exploiting teachers. Majority of college teachers who  take part in compulsory  examination duty  and answer sheet evaluation work are denied remuneration on time.

Out of 473 colleges in Kerala,375 are under self-financing sector and the number shows the significance of such institutions in higher education.
