By the end, I had started to realize how subjective this whole business of educational administration had become. Although books have everything laid out clearly, every Chairman decided his own terms and the maximum that we contributed to the whole process of education was by attending annual functions and frequent meetings, that’s all. Nobody ever read anything like, Kothari Commission, Three- language formula, NPE, NCF, CCE or even the most elementary-Education Code for KV Sangathan. What guided the Chairmen’s decisions, generally was, we did it like this, in our schools! I had suddenly started enjoying this feeling of being an Insider till recently.
I understood how all this administration is a wasted effort. To top it all, the recent most addition is the serious comments on how this system of Assessments is leading to mass failures, how students are not focused , how they can’t talk in English, how they don’t excel n reach IITs because they are not failed till eighth, on one hand and then also complain about the increasing competition and privatization.
This brings me to one more pertinent issue, is it important to distinguish between bureaucrats and educational administrators? Are the bureaucrats who have also grown up through the same education system insensitive towards the administrative issues related to the complete classroom experience?
Lord Eddard was a very good knight and a warrior but finally even he could not win against the most calculative character of the drama:Queen Cersei. Similarly, I feel the educators are not able to perform because they are not equipped enough to handle school governance along with education.
I decide to be an outsider till then .
