International Trends and Private Higher Education in India
Gupta, Asha
International Journal of Educational Management, v22 n6 p565-594 2008
Purpose: This paper seeks to conduct an in-depth study of international trends in private higher education and focus on the Indian scenario. Design/methodology/approach: The methodology adopted is conceptual, analytical and comparative. Findings: Though there has been better acceptability of private higher education institutions in India today than the "trepidation" felt at their emergence three decades ago, certain basic questions have been raised: Is the presence of private sector in higher education inevitable? Is it desirable too? Why is the Supreme Court of India intervening in matters pertaining to private higher education so frequently? What are the issues at stake? Originality/value: An attempt is made to highlight the political-economic, socio-cultural, national-international, ethical-philosophical and legal-practical aspects of this outreaching theme, in general, and focus on the driving forces, causes, and consequences of the emergence of the private higher education during the last three decades, in particular. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
