I would have said no to veil the flaws of Indian Education System, had not we all already known how the syllabus in Indian institution changes with the change of governments. Talks about the changes in the syllabus of History in the states of Maharashtra, Punjab, and Uttar Pradesh had earlier been in the air, and the opposition does not cease to accuse the current government for the “saffronisation of education (and History)”.
With all this on display, it won’t be justified to say that the education policies in our country are shaped and reshapes by true educationists, and not by bureaucrats. We all are familiar with the change in syllabus of history that BJP government wanted to bring to glorify Hindu rulers, effacing the Mughal history. The academicians fear that if the policies continue to remain in the hands of bureaucrats, most of the studies, especially which of history, would lose their authenticity and become more and more political.
