A vexed problem facing us is the clamor to open more colleges and to reserve more seats for backward classes. But it will be a sheer folly to expand such facilities recklessly without giving any thought to the quality of education imparted. If admissions are made far more selective, it will automatically reduce the number of entrants. This should apply particularly reduce the number of entrants. This should apply particularly to new colleges, many of which are little more than degree factories. Only then can the authorities hope to bring down the teacher-student ration to manageable proportion. What is more, teachers should be given refresher courses every summer to brush up their knowledge. Besides, if college managements increase their library budget it will help both the staff and the students a great deal.

At the same time, however; it will be unfair to deny college education to thousands of young men and women, unless employers stop insisting on degreases even for clerical jobs. For a star, why can’t the Government disqualify graduate from securing certain jobs, say class III and IV posts? Once the link between degrees and jobs is severed, at least in some important department, it will make young people think twice before joining college.
