True.

Dichotomised opportunities lead to a stark inequality.

Jose Costa

That's also true in most countries of the world

I agree, the market pays a premium for required and needed skills. I also agree people from upper income families have better opportunities to acquire those skills, since they attend better schools (private or public) or their families place greater value on education. Studies have shown a school voucher system can increase the quantity and quality of education (i.e. quantity of high quality schools and quality of low quality schools). The U.S. education system is basically a two-tier system of a large proportion of high quality schools and a large proportion of low quality schools.

The last sentence,that is, "....students in India's 18000 colleges and universities receive starkly inferior training...." is totally misleading and incorrect.There are many good and well functioning colleges even in remote villages of India which give top class training and knowledge to students than some of the IIMs and IITs where many of the faculty members are maximisers-maximising their opportunities for fellowships,foreign travel grants,awards,seminars(both within the country and abroad),top places in advisory agencies) etc.Please don't blame a college teacher working in a remote place without adequate facilities and struggling hard to gather latest information.

Well Mr.Varma,

I dont think it is an issue of blame. You talk about IIM's and IIT's, but very few people pass out from sych good institutes. Lot many improvements have to come about.

Most of the colleges do devliver a degree, but essential skills are mostly left untouched.

And rural areas find it difficult to develop owing to lack or opportunities in the form of less supply of education, scanty funds, non willingness of teachers to teach etc.

G.Visakh Varma

Mr.Alex M.Thomas,

Some colleges do impart essential skills;some departments work in an excellent manner and some teachers are dedicated.In rural areas,some colleges within their constraints do a lot of good academic work and practical training to their students.

Alex M Thomas

Mr Varma,

I do agree to that.

Based on my experience, I can vouch for this. The course and teaching may be excused as being faulty due to lack of investment but the worst part is the evaluation system -- one that emphasizes examination performance and that too in a criminally redundant test of memorisation skills.
