Many of us have benefitted from the public university education system in India. Even though the public school system is not ideal, there are many students who go through these schools, get into the public university, and make it good. A professor told me, “I would not be where I am now but for the public university system.” Indeed, and what a loss that would have been.
The push to privatise the public university system can only deepen the inequalities in our society. We need to stop this!!
