Nowadays education system becomes a business. The main reason is that the government schools are not up to the standards, so every parent wants to give better education to their children and join their children in corporate schools by paying thousands and lakes of fees. It's not their mistake. But taking this as advantage corporate schools collect Lang of donations and they do not maintain minimum standard in education. They didn't provide a playground, they don't mind of interests of the students. Today's style of these education systems business is that they themselves sell all the things like uniforms, books, school bags for higher cost and make this as mandatory to buy all those things from them only. They provide a luxurious life by making students lazy In spite of not providing quality education.

So, parents must aware of all those things and provide quality education to their children In spite of providing a luxurious life.

Hello everyone.

I agree with this topic but nowadays in government schools education level is less and in government school student don't know about why we are studying any after-school life they left school and if we ask any government teacher that where you send your child for study you will get answer that in private school this big falt in education system we can not anything our parents because they always want that we be happy always that's why they do everything for us they send us in coaching and other private Institute give money a lot of so I want to tell that government should give special pay attention to primary education because this is base of education every student.

Thank you very much, have a nice day.

I would say, the education industry is growing in an exponential manner. And only this industry takes on over 40% of the total business.

People will sleep with an empty stomach, but they will send their child for higher education- is the scenario in most of the middle class and rich families. We don't think much, we have only one goal to get an education with certification which will bring jobs. But we never think, what a job is, on which the job is going to work? we don't ask our teachers that when everyone will work in Govt then who will pay taxes. I'm telling you, the industrialists are taking advantage of this kind of mentality while building a brand new institution. We should think twice before being admitted into such an institution where education is available to all who lacks in merit but have a lot of money.

Good Evening Friends.

According to my point of View, Education Industry is Not a Business these days.

There are Teachers & Educational institutes who's Motive is to Build Student's Future. There are Teachers who pay attention to their Students and Mentored them until they get succeed.

Well As far as Money is Concerned. So there is some money required for Maintenance. Salary to Faculties, Infrastructure and some other expenses are there.

The education industry is a business nowadays it is the biggest truth of life.

1. Nowadays college school are only business ideas they doing business only they only receive money.

2. I noticed that college and school are only focused on theoretical knowledge because of this students mind are not develop properly.

3. They hire only those faculties and teachers there are paying less amount. For this best knowledgeable faculties and teachers are going next field and another place.

4. In India, the cultural school and college focus on theory. If they focus on equally both theory and practical knowledge students have gained more knowledge.

Good afternoon.

My name is Kiran.

Yes, I appreciate this point, the education industry is business today. Schools and colleges are taking to many donations from parents and they are hiring very fewer teachers and give really fewer facilities. But I think the government must have to do one thing they can make all private school government school and reduce all donations. And they must have to do basic schooling free of cost. That makes education available for any poor people also.

The education industry is a business these days.

Education is very important to grow and helps the country. It allows human being to understand and to face off there challenge in there manner. But now a days it's has become a business due to globalization. Education industries main motive is to earn profit. In India, education is becoming business at a vast pace. In India, people believe in grades and certificate, not that how much the child understand by heart. Whereas, In Dubai, primary and secondary education is free and it made compulsory in law. Childrens mostly prefer coaching and institution for getting higher marks, and they achieve it because they clear their concept in them. They can't get atmosphere of learning in school because they have lots of doubt. Teachers only teach what is written in book, he/she can't describe behalf of them and can't clear the concept of child. Teachers only want to complete their syllabus on time while they can't sees that how much the child understand. So according to me, the education system is prevailing into business in these days.

Yes I totally agree with this topic.

Nowadays, this is a trend in a business field. People are building an educational institutes and coaching centers to earn money. They don't care about the quality of education.

Parents are also worried about their children's education, they do everything for this, it has increased the level of corruption in the education industry.

People think of it as a status definition, so they are sending their children into the big budget schools and coaching centers. This is why educational institutes have become a business industry.

My suggestion is to prevent the education system from becoming a business industry, the government should keep an eye on such institutions and lay a set of rules and regulations. So that the school can concentrate more on providing quality of education rather than focus on money.

Yes, I completely agree with this topic that our education system is converted from knowledge-based to business oriented industry. I think that both the education provider (organisation, institute school collages etc) and students are responsible for this action because the purpose of getting educated is shifted from gaining knowledge to getting the job and earn money. Thats why students and their parent focus and force to choose science.

And bio as subject and we all know that there are limited government seats are available in that so this leads to the rising of privatisation in the education sector where there is no governing body to set the fee structure and other expenses.

I also agree with this fact that there is tough competition in other stream-like arts, sports, etc but the point is that there is no involvement of private sector to such extent like in science and bio which make it business oriented.

So to change the scenario we have to think open-mindedly and also give importance others streams.

I agree that the education industry is a business these days,

Nowadays people are thinking that, if they send their children into corporate schools only, they will get the value and respect in the society and the other side people are making money with the student's career. Even just for play schools, everyone is spending money in lacs for their children's career and for quality education. But this "quality" term disappeared many years ago.

They only maintain their infrastructure and budget bank. In kota, every student gets admission there to enter the IIT colleges.

I'm totally agree with the topic because education is the most important thing for our better future but the people don't care about your future. The schools & colleges are increasing day by day and students take admission by thinking that they will provide better education but things that happens is after taking the admission you will become able to know that they don't have any experienced teacher who can teach you better that's because of they provide less salary to the teacher and take anyone as a teacher so how they can teach you better. Just they are doing their business. They don't have any effect whether you are gaining knowledge or not, they only have mean from their business.

So, for gaining the better knowledge students have to choose some extra sources for that.

India is known for its culture and the value patterns we have been following. Likewise, education was considered as a service, is said that the entire concept has changed and the service has become pure business.

Rather than delivering the same old book concepts, we should provide a great platform where the students can think wisely and choose whats the best domain for them to do the best.

There are different methods of teaching.

- Disseminating.

- Creative.

Guide the students to think creatively and provide opportunities to get the hands-on real-time based scenarios with which students will no longer prefer the spoon feeding concept. We should look for the quality of education, not quantity.

Yes. It can clearly be observed that the education system has become a business industry these days. Everyone wants to earn money and our education industry has become one among the great opportunities to extract money from parents. One reason behind this scenario is that the majority of government schools don't have proper education facilities so the parents being worried about their childs future are helpless and have to admit their child in private schools as they claim to give a proper education and facilities. But many private schools take it as an advantage and in exchange of good education they demand a hefty amount of fees and donations in exchange of giving admission to the children in their respective schools.

Along with this sometimes it is seen that the standard of education provided is inadequate as compared to the fees they extracted from the children. Thus the government must keep an eye on such institutions and lay a strong set of rules and regulations to prevent the education system from becoming a business industry so that the school focus more on providing quality education rather than concetrating on the money issue.

Some Government owned institutes charge low fees but the quality of education they provide is also low.

Parents are also concern about their child's education, they do everything for it, it has raised the level of corruption in the education industry. Private institutes have increased the bar of fees without raising the quality. People think of it as a status definition to sending the children into big-budget schools and coaching centres.

Hello Everyone,

Nowadays, some of the educational institutes have a single motive to earn as much as they can. These type of institutes are not focusing on the learning graph of the student. Even, more than 70% of institutes are business oriented.

Educational institutes are making the castle in the air that we are providing facilities in our classrooms, "But what about the knowledge". Before the Government of India, people should understand the situation how can we provide the better education for the students in affordable prices.

Each and every educational institute should hire better faculty so that student can be productive in their field.

Yes, It can be said so. The main motive of any business is to earn profits. Same goes for education industry nowadays. They provide education not to make people learn but to make profits. They do so by charging exorbitant fees which makes many students to avail loan. Also, many educational institutions take donations to give admissions. Fees are increased every single year by these institutions in the name of improving the infrastructure of the institute so that they can provide better education but this never happens. That is why, even though Indian students pay high fees but the quality of education doesn't justify with it.

We forcely have to send our students to the private schools. Nowadays, 30-40% of the income of the middle-class family has spent in the schools. Schools are charging really a huge amount at the time of admission. Not only this, they are also linked with the shops like garments, book stall etc. And they are forcing parents to buy the stuff from that shop. So, they get benefited like 10-20%. That's how the today's education system works. Everything is a business nowadays.

Hello everyone,

Education has become business due to an increase in more schools and institutes which are opened. The privatization of educational institutes also helped it to become from educational institutes to a business. The standard and quality of the education decreased due to more institutes and a lack of quality teachers. Teachers started concentrating only on those who understand things by themselves and others are left alone as in this fast moving and competing world.

Nowadays educational institutions are more for making profits than to a provide quality education. They try to take fees as much as possible and hire the teachers for as less as possible. Education has not only become costly but also a hot business. The most paid are the chances for most rewarded in terms of money and power. It has become the main goal for power holders to start colleges simply because of the reason it gives high returns.

But one question in my mind is that, Why are students opting out of India's government schools, which educate the poorest and most vulnerable students until the age of 14 for free, and migrating to fee-charging private institutions in such large numbers.

According to the Unified district information system for education (U-DISE) data, the belief among parents that private schools offer better value for money and better teaching than government schools.

Another fact shows that the Govt teachers earn more salaries than a private school teacher, but don't perform as well.

Government expenditure on education, as a percentage of the GDP, has been decreasing consistently. In 2016-2017, education expenditure was 2.6% of the GDP.

A common suggestion is increasing India's spending on education. Indian central government spending on school and higher education were less than other BRICS countries. However, increased government spending on education is not enough to improve educational outcomes.

India's education policy must be thoroughly revised to put in place better accountability and monitoring mechanisms to exploit the gains of increase in fiscal outlays on education.
