Corruption refers to the practice of misusing one’s power and position to achieve various illegal ends. Abuse of entrusted power for private (illicit) gains Complex Phenomenon Bribes, fraud, extortion, favouritism, nepotism, embezzlement, collusion. In politics, administration, justice, prosecution, private sector Paying for something one is entitled to get (extortion) vs. paying for something on is not entitled to get Grey areas: Lobbying, gifts Criteria: Reciprocity, transparency and accountability, biased decisionsPowerPoint Presentation: CORRUPTION IN EDUCATION Enough stress cannot be laid on the importance of education in today’s world. But when education itself is full of bureaucracy, how bright can the future be? Between policymakers (ministerial, central level) and providers (schools, teacher, contractors) Bias in regulation favouring vested interests Misallocation of expenditures (e.g. subsidies), ghost schools Favouritism, nepotism, selling of posts Corrupt, non-competitive procurement of school books, equipments or construction contracts Between providers (schools, teacher, contractors) and beneficiaries (students, parents, communities) Teacher absenteeism, ghost teachers, private tutoring Unofficial fees, embezzlement of school resources Selling of exam and other marketable information, selling of diplomas, misuse of selection criteria, extortion of sexual favours.PowerPoint Presentation: Teacher absenteeism in India is among the highest in the world. They get government salary but teach only in their tuition center for getting extra money.PowerPoint Presentation: Some Facts As per Saumya Bhattacharya [ Economic Times / 28 May, 2011 ], a report published by EIU and Hedrick & Struggles, found India and China competing as follows ( Amongst 60 countries ) : University Education Rank China ……………….. 45 India …………………. 56 Compulsory Education Quality Rank China ………………… 39 India …………………. 58 Talent Environment Rank China ………………… 29 India …………………… 45 Quality of Labor Force Rank China ………………… 44 India ………………….. 22PowerPoint Presentation: Forms of Corruption Bribes paid by parents to teachers to ensure good grades and examination results; Bribes paid by teachers to public officials to get preferred posting and promotion; Profiling of children based on parental educational qualifications, financial standing or social standing; Inappropriate use of funds allocated to purchase teaching materials or to build schools. And the list goes so on………………..PowerPoint Presentation: Allocating quotas and reserving seats for economically backward classes (and for other historically discriminated and disadvantaged groups) in higher educational institutions is economically inefficient, morally wrong, strategically flawed, and tactically ineffective. Quotas, if they have any effect on the system, effectively replace qualified candidates with otherwise unqualified candidates. This brings us to the point why quotas in higher education for disadvantaged groups is a morally repulsive policy. Quota and Reservation in Education SystemPowerPoint Presentation: Corruption in Education has severe consequences which include – A high drop-out rate which increases at high levels of poverty Low quality teaching leading to poor achievement A system susceptible to adverse political, religious and ethnic influence Deepened inequality between rich and poor, preventing entire generations from pursuing a meaningful future amongst other. Some probable solutions : Funding (but not the provisioning) of universal education up to high school level. Providing an independent regulatory authority for the higher education sector so that private firms can compete fairly on a level playing field. 3. Providing educational loan guarantees to bank. Consequences & SolutionsPowerPoint Presentation: If the foundation stone happens to be crooked, how can we build up a healthy nation? The importance of quality education in developing India to reach higher pedestals in all spheres of life and to protect our democracy and secularism cannot be debated upon. If steps aren’t taken to prevent corruption in all ministries, including education the future may not be as bright as it is imagined to be right now. Corruption, which is commonly and very rightfully known as cancer, can and will easily swallow India’s democratic laws and regulation making them mere paper tigers, as it is rightly saidPowerPoint Presentation: The Pillars of Anti-corruption Integrity Address risks and dilemmas openly Promote a culture of discussion – No zero tolerance Foster and protect whistleblowers (anonymity) Transparency Publicise information (e.g. informal payments, regulatory decisions, selection criteria etc.) Is the information accessible? (space, time, financially) Accountability More effective and efficient controls (externals, CS, medias etc.) Avoid impunity (Law enforcement) A-C Risk Assessment Collective Action Leadership Management Participation Involve Civil Society and others (e.g. Report Cards, Integrity Pacts) Train on how to use information? Foster platformsPowerPoint Presentation: Anti-corruption through Education 1. Primary and secondary education: Important role in transmitting fundamental values 2. Tertiary education: Reach future political, administrative and business leaders 3. Pre-service and in-service trainings: Sensitise and build capacities within staff Knowledge on risks and costs of corruption in specific sectors Provide guidelines on how to react to corruptionPowerPoint Presentation: Some Challenges … Addressing corruption openly can lead to unintended effects E.g. raising awareness of sexual abuse in schools alone could incite parents to withdraw their children, especially daughters, from school Control vs. Motivation Too much focus on increasing controls may breed mistrust and undermine the intrinsic motivation of teachers and staff in the sector Decentralisation Decentralisation may not necessarily facilitate anti-corruption efforts Instead, it may create new opportunities for local corrupt behaviours that may be more difficult to control Holistic approach Anti-corruption efforts in education are a key aspect in the overall fight against corruption But they may go up in smoke if not echoed by more effective prosecution and sanctioning of corrupt casesPowerPoint Presentation: Presentation By…… Rajat Kumar Kar Thank You You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
