of its stupor Many of the proposals on connectivityinfrastructureupgrading curriculumindependent regulationetc are unexceptionable But the frenzy of proposals raises questions about the clarity over what is being proposed The revolutionary fervour on display is indeed admirable But more needs to be done to assure us that this is a revolution that understands the conditions under which it can be successful Otherwise the revolution may turn more into a slash and burn exercise Lets take some examples Kapil Sibals concern for the trauma students face is heartfeltand the debate he has generated over pedagogy and exams is long overdue But what are the conditions under which this trauma can be overcome Is it primarily because of 10th standard exams An honest answer will involve a number of facets Firstthe reason for trauma is that in a competitive system every marginal mark matters It does not matter what kind of exam system you havethe fact is that with mass education competition will be intense And it is competition that is the root source of trauma In factwe should not be under any illusion that a meritocratic society under conditions of mass competition will be intensely traumatic as in China or Singapore This competition can be mitigated by getting the distribution of quality institutions rightbut only to a degree Secondthe minister seems to be giving contradictory signals The idea of a single national examthat then becomes the basis for admissionwill be even more trauma inducing for the following reason One of the weaknesses of the Indian system is that our admissions criteria are focused on a single measure Whether it is percentage or percentilenational tests or differentiated examsnumbers or gradesis not the issue The issue is whether we can allow multiple criteria to be used in admission: track record over a long periodessaysreferencesinterviewsetc The real source of strength of the US system is that it allows for multiple criteria of assessmentoften completely at the educators discretion So your fate does not hang on just one shot But such a multiplesensitive system requires one thing we do not allow: educators to exercise judgment and discretion Sibals proposalson the face of itseem to increase the stakes in examsnot reduce them The only way they can be genuinely reduced is by broad-based assessments But our system does not have structures of trust to allow this to happen If Sibal can push thishe will create a genuine revolution; not another counterfeit centralisation Thirdthere has to be clarity over the role of Class 10 exams and Class 12 exams The original idea was the Class 10 exam gives you a comparative benchmark on general skills and aptitudes; Class 12 is more specialised by different streams The content of the Class 10 exam can be debated But can we avoid some benchmark that allows us to make comparative assessments across schools In shortwhile the content of exams needs to be looked atit is revolutionary over-zeal to promise a system without these benchmarks In factone of the reasons there is little accountability at lower levels of schooling is precisely because there are no comparative quality benchmarks Finallythe real source of daily trauma is the fact that the quality of teaching is woefully inadequate Teachers themselves often do not have the basic understanding that they can impart to students; as a result most students (and their parents) have to do double schooling Removing the trauma here will require massive overhauling of BEd and teachers training programmes What is interesting is that in all the proposals out for discussionthe focus is either on selection mechanisms (exams) or some content overhaul (curriculum) The real challenge of the system is going to be raising quality at all levelsand making sure weak schools also do better A focus exclusively on selection mechanisms and content does not address this problem and can sometimes work at cross purposes While Sibal has rightly gestured that the curriculum needs to be looked atthe National Curriculum Framework is somewhat weaker on mathematics and the basic sciences than it is on social sensitivity In shortthe trauma that worries Sibal is about how education is embedded in a larger contextand wont easily be addressed by ad hoc interventionsno matter how bold they sound Education reform requires persistencenot a Jacobin 100-day purge Similarlyin higher education the noise coming out is also a bit contradictory There are significant variances in the Knowledge Commissions and Yashpal Committees recommendations These may seem small in relation to the broad areas of agreementbut they may end up making the difference between sensible regulation and over-regulation There is still something of a tension between the emphasis on autonomyexperimentation and the demands of homogenisation and uniformity Yashpal himself in his interviews is proposing far more centralisation than is warranted The requirement of portability of credits is a good idea But it is otiose to think that it can apply across all universities For it to be effectiveit has to be built ground upthrough clusters of compatible universities coordinating among themselves The proposals still do not get away from a fundamental flaw in our approach to higher education: treating the system as one undifferentiated wholeso that reforms apply uniformly What would autonomy mean if universities had no discretion over admission criteriasince they would be bound to a single test What would it mean if there is fee regulation How would diversity of institutions flourish in the public system if they were all committed to the same pay scales and similar curriculum Where is the strategy for public universities that will still be at the heart of easing the supply constraint While the right noises are being made about attracting talent backcan this be done without some strategy for agglomerating the best in a few institutions so that new benchmarks can be set In shortmany of Sibals proposals seem to be working at cross purposes The logic of autonomydiversityexperimentation and differentiation is very different from the logic of centralisationstandardisationexcessive curricularcoordination and a single national system The difficulty is that we seem to want the former outcomes with instruments designed for the latter system The success of the revolution will not be the bold pronouncement; it will depend on who takes it forward with careclarity and consistency The writer is presidentCentre for Policy
