Is education becoming a business?
The entry of corporate sector in technical education has affected the middle class. They claim to prepare students for IITs from class sixth onwards. But the fee is very high. It becomes virtually impossible for the common man to avail the benefit.

NOWADAYS, with increasing awareness towards education, especially regarding the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), it has became a dream for every student, who has completed his class 12th, to pursue his engineering in the elite engineering institutes.

Has the the increase in corporate culture in intermediate education become a business? Corporate colleges have increased the fee irrespective of the norms to be followed as instructed by the state board of intermediate education.

Now a common student, with average marks say (500/600), is being charged an amount of nearly 18,000 by corporate colleges for Engineering Architecture Agricultural & Medical Common Entrance (EAMCET) plus intermediate.

Its very hard for the common man to afford such exorbitant fees. The corporate culture has now entered into schools and is turning education into business. These schools claimed that they will lay the foundation, from class sixth onwards, towards orientation regarding the IITs.

It was a good move but the fee they are demanding is beyond reach of the common man.

I, hereby, request the education ministry of the government to check the fee charged by the corporate schools so that even an ordinary person can benefit from it and ensure that education is not turned into a business.
