Better improve standard of education to make coaching institutes redundant
The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has decided to set up a committee to prepare guidelines to regulate the functioning of coaching institutes, which are being run across India as a thriving business. The recurrent suicides incidents by coaching students and unjustified fee structures of such institutes, have led to the move by the union government.

Taking cognizance of the ever increasing of suicides by coaching students in Rajasthan's Kota city and mushrooming of coaching institutes has made the MHRD to set up a committee to re-examine the entrance tests and pattern of coaching being followed by the coaching institutes.

"There is a racket both at school and college levels that is being perpetuated by the teachers by not delivering in the classroom and coaxing students to have coaching from them after the institutional timings. This means that teachers are the main culprits who give washed down education to students from low-income group students and prepare students to score higher marks through hefty coaching fee charged from rich students," said a clerk working in an office in Jaipur whose son goes to a local college.

Even the newspaper reports about the present lot of students admitted to IITs indicate that students are not performing well in studies as they can no more learn independently and have got dependent on coaching by other. This means that even after cracking the IIT entrance test with the help of coaching institutes, they have not acquired the 'learnership' as I call it. This implies that, even to acquire IIT degree now, they require coaching.

It would be in fitness of things that standard of education in the mainstream institutions should be improved through 'reforming teachers and their classroom processes' to make coaching institutes redundant.
