EDUCATION ?.. Education is not preparation for life; Education is life itself. Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence. An education isn’t how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It’s being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don’t.

But it was a severeheadache to the Students and also withthe teachers.The latest comments from the studentsCalicut and Kannur Universities are ofmuch worse in nature……The news cutting from “The Hindu” alsotells the same. “What to do with the Grade ? No idea..”
Medical – Engineering….. Great Problem ????? In 2004 issues started in Kerala ,as 4 self FINANCING medical colleges started in Kerala .for the information of all ,its not the state government who gave permission to start college .but its the medical council .we dont need permission of state government for starting a college .we only needs a NOC certificate from state government. For giving NOC ,the state government gave a suggestion to the colleges that 50%of seats must be reserved for state merit. And for the rest you can do anything….
In 2005 admission was as 50:50 Huge donation for medical Management Seats SFI Protesting Government failed to initiate proper guidelines for starting of self financing colleges and their admission process 2006 – Election – LDF Govt. In the first year itself they failed ,the private management consortium formed and no of colleges increased to 9.
In 2007 4 colleges under Christian management got their minority right This year government formed Muhammad committee Each colleges gave admission to whoever gave more money This allegations started big quarrel between government and managements Decided to conduct an entrance exam of their own and gave admission based on that
it created a 3 type fee system in the same college for same course – Injustice ? From 2008 the admission in self financing colleges is going on uncontrolled What can be done ????
A strict legislation can solve this issue Government should take care to impliment a single fee system Admission should be from state merit . All colleges should bring under single regulatory committee. The same kind of problems exist with the Engineering courses also..
