am Related News Latest study: Indias enrolment ratio is still well below global average The enduring myth about Indias superior higher educational institutions was tested recentlywith a report assessing the countrys labour force and its preparedness The reportreleased by staffing company TeamLeasefound that India is failing to properly educate its workforceespecially beyond the high school level According to the reportIndias gross enrolment ratio (GER) the number of students enrolled versus the number of eligible students for higher education was a mere 132 per cent in 2003; it is now projected to rise to 157 per centstill substantially lower than the global averagemarking slow progress in the governments goal of attaining a GER of 30 per cent by 2030 India is a laggard compared even to other developing countrieswhose GER averages 36 per cent And there are as many as 374 districts where the GER is even lower than the fairly abysmal national average Not only is the Indian state failing to get its youth into higher educational institutionsthe college graduates it does produce are by and large ill-prepared to enter an increasingly globally integrated labour market They lack the skills to get the jobs they trained for and are not considered employable Study after studysuch as the McKinsey-NASSCOM one in 2005quotes employers stating their dissatisfaction with the quality of graduates There are jobs in the IT sectorfor instance but not enough qualified engineers to fill them According to the TeamLease reportwell over half 58 per centin fact of young Indians suffer from some degree of skill-deprivation The challenge for the state is threefold: firstit must get eligible students into college or provide them with some form of higher education training; secondit must improve the quality of instruction available at such institutes; and thirdit has to do this in a way that is cost-effective Although the 2012 budget increased education spending by 18 per centthe dismal state of Indias public finances will hobble any effort to seriously address the higher education deficit on both quality and quantity Expanding access to such institutions must be a priority if India is to reap any kind of demographic dividend from its young labour force More than half the countrys population is under 25and a third are less than 15 years old The drive towards the universalisation of primary education via the Right to Education Act and a push for the expansion of secondary school education (with the Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyanfor which the World Bank recently lent India an interest-free $500 million) means that more and more of these young people will be eligible for and aspiring towards at least some college-level instruction Certainlythe number of universities and colleges has increased since liberalisation A fast-growing economy needs skilled labourand this demand was matched by peoples changing aspirationsleading to a sharp growth in the number of public and private higher education institutes in the country In 1991India had 184 universities and 5748 colleges; by 2011this number had increased to 537 universities and 25951 colleges A lot of this growth has been driven by private colleges (many affiliated to state universities) Butas a FICCI and Ernst and Young report found last yearmost higher education institutionspublic or privatehad poor physical infrastructuresuffered from faculty shortages and had outdated curriculawith little power or incentive to update them The UGCthe principal higher education regulatorreleased a list of 21 fake universities earlier this yearsome of which are just hole-in-the-wall offices AICTEwhich regulates technical institutionsidentified 340 private institutes that are not accredited indeedonly about 4500 of all of Indias universities and colleges are accredited The proposal to unify different regulators under a single bodythe National Commission for Higher Education and Researchfails to address the reasons for the structural weakness of current regulators Even if one sets aside the quality of instructiononly about 8 per cent of the labour force are university graduates; the rest enter the competitive global economy at a serious disadvantage Clearlythe government has to work towards both expanding access and ensuring a modicum of qualityand there are at least nine pieces of legislation in the pipeline to help improve the supply of quality universities and colleges for a whole generation of young Indians But whether these bills will be enough to successfully reform the countrys broken higher education sector is another matterespecially given the limited availability of quality faculty It is easy to be hoodwinked into believing that there is nothing broken in the Indian higher education system there areafter allplenty of success stories of people graduating from IITs and IIMs and then going on to receive dream job offers But those institutes service a tiny fraction of our populationand even they do not perform well in global university rankings If the government is not carefulour hypothetical demographic dividend is going to
