Greedy university teachers
A REPORT front-paged in New Age on Saturday highlights the corrupt practices of the so-called highly-educated public university teachers (or cheaters), who we generally take to be intellectuals in society. It is really a profound shame and slur on the noble profession of teaching. Greed in their character transcends all bounds of duty, honour and respect, usually associated with this profession of teaching. Now I believe in the remarks I have overheard, and was initially surprised, that many university teachers are far richer cash-wise than even the ill-reputed, corrupt and bribe-prone engineers of the Roads and Highways, and Public Works Departments.
In this connection, the statement from the University Grants Commission is worth repeating: ‘Some public university teachers spend more time at the private universities than at their main universities.’ From this report, it is clear that these corrupt practices are known. The report, however, did not mention anything about private individual or group coaching given by some university teachers. These greedy teachers lack all norms of morality and so are unfit for the profession. They should be sacked or terminated from their jobs, under the terms of their contracts, as per legal norms of service applicable.
The Anti-Corruption Commission should take notice of this, and thoroughly investigate and give them the maximum possible legal punishment to set an example. Small wonder, the country is flooded with the tide of corruption, from top to bottom.
