Should we not regulate the private coaching centers?In our country, when there is a small business opportunity, in private coaching, hundreds jump into it, almost immediately. One can see the hundreds of NEET coaching centers springing up in every nook and corner, of even the smallest of towns. The fees charged is quite high.
The reports emanating from the students is not good. There do not seem to be qualified teachers. Would it not be a better idea to have some check on the quality of teachers? Can there be some qualifying test, which should be made compulsory, so that the teachers can teach the particular students who enroll in such coaching centers.? There is the UGC NET and the State level SLET too. Can we have some similar qualifying examination so that there will be better quality of teachers?
Or should we leave everything to market forces? For instance, some one hundred engineering colleges have already been closed in Tamil Nadu. A few have no fresh admissions and are just waiting for the existing batch of students to graduate. If left untouched, the same fate will happen to the private coaching centers too.
