The commercialization of tertiary education in India: challenges and strategies for educational leadership
This project work explores the challenges of the commercialization of tertiary education in India. Several years ago, some philanthropists started private institutes in order to provide free education to needy children. Nowadays, however, the motive of Indian private institutes has changed into monetary purposes. Commercialization in higher studies contradicts “Education for all” by allowing only the financially able people to get an education. Tertiary education becoming beyond the reach of many common students is the driving force for this research project. I hope this handbook will act as an eye opener for school administrators, government executives and policy makers. I believe this guide will (a) reveal some harsh impacts and consequences of commercialization in Indian education and (b) present purposed strategies that will create an environment to curb the menace of commercialization.
