One of the parameter for judging the quality of colleges is the faculty it employs. Lack of qualified faculty is one of the major concerns of the colleges. Corruption in employment of the faculty members has also played its part in degrading the quality of faculty. Also, absenteeism, private tutoring and coaching classes are playing their part.

“We may forego material benefits, but we cannot forego our rights and opportunities to reap the benefits of highest education to the fullest extent.”- B. R Ambedkar. Education can help in the social, political and economic empowerment of the depressed class and dalit section in particular.
This site is dedicated to two people who helped me draft the project proposal and without whose guidance and support I probably would never have had the energy to re-submit the proposal when it was not funded by NEH the first year it was submitted:
But I must compliment you for the fine language and flow of it. Sentences are short, simple and are pleasant to read. Just, you should have gone through some sources. But as it is written without referring to any sources, it is a good essay. 🙂
