By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: Corruption in education is a serious blight that undermines the quality and availability of schools and universities around the world, according to an international report.Anti-corruption campaigners Transparency International have published a global survey showing that about one in six students has had to pay a bribe for education services. Corruption in education is a major hindrance to achieving the second Millennium Development Goal of comprehensive primary school education for all the world's children by 2015. Corruption in education can take many forms: bribes paid by parents to teachers to ensure good grades and examination results; bribes paid by teachers to public officials to get preferred posting and promotion; embezzlement of funds allocated to purchase teaching materials or to build schools. Corruption in the education sector can also mean the bypassing of criteria in the approval of school establishment and accreditation, cronyism and nepotism in procurement and teacher appointment, resulting in "ghost teachers" or the selling of information on exams. Instead of MP Quota make transparent rules for admission in 1100 Kendriya Vidyalayas as increasing the MP's quota for admissions to KVs is a terrible idea of aiding and abetting corruption, and should be abolished and abandoned..Reportedly Unlimited corruption exists in primary education all over country and specially in KVs in admission process as allegedly quota raj permits this and brokers and middleman and agents take advantage of quota and make beeline to MPs and KV seats are reportedly sold at a price in the open market and eligible students get deprived .Reportedly many parents admit that they paid money to the brokers and middleman and agents to get the MP letters for quota in Kendriya Vidyalayas. CBI need to raid and to arrest the brokers and insiders involved in the fraud for the admissions happened till date in quota raj .It need to be found out whether the seats given were for eligible candidates or any corruption involvedas large scale allegations are made and reported . ".Smt Smriti Irani is undermining the PM's promise of striking at the roots of corruption and continuation of quota raj is eroding PM clean image. Increasing the MP's quota for admissions to KVs is a terrible idea of aiding corruption, and should be abandoned. Quotas such as these promote a culture of patronage, which undermines the idea of an equal opportunity merit-based system. If the intent is to ensure more children from disadvantaged backgrounds find a place in these schools, then the ministry should set up a mechanism that would enable this. Far from ensuring equality of opportunity, the admission quota will lay the ground for creating avenues for corruption and a web of patronage. Both of evils needs to be eradicated from root.
