Question:

Discuss this table in the classroom and answer the following questions.

1. Is the increase in the number of colleges adequate to admit the increasing number of students?

2. Do you think we should have more universities?

3.What is the increase noticed among the teachers in the year 2015–16.

4. What is your idea about future colleges and universities?

Answer:

1. No,the increase in the number of colleges is not adequate to admit the increasing number of students because the number of students is increasing at a faster rate compared to the colleges being established.

2. Seeing the ever increasing number of students, we should establish more universities to cater to their needs. But at the same time greater stress should be on opening more and more colleges.

3. There was an increase of 21 thousand teachers in the year 1998-99 compared to 1996-97.

4. In future colleges and universities, stress should be on vocationalisation of education. There should also be a focus on distance education, and convergence of formal and informal, distance and IT education institutions. Colleges should be set up in rural areas to benefit the rural students. Colleges and universities should focus on providing student centered education.
