Instead of getting corruption for school admission all the schools are collecting terms fees, special fees, and other fees as they decide. This type of collection is not much heavier in Corporation / Govt Schools. But the parents image is that whatever their financial position they want to admit their kids only in convent/matriculation/cbse schools. A Uniform pattern should be drawn by Govt and the entire education system should be changed in consultation with Scholars. A common programme should be implemented which should be a path for getting jobs on completion of their studies. Here, in education corruption comes in all professional colleges which are being maintained by Politicians and Highly sofsticated VIPs. more
