Quality of Higher Education in Northeast India

"Higher education is considered to be the apex of formal education. It includes greater specialization necessitated by rapid socio - economic and industrial development. Higher Education is generally understood to cover teaching, research and extension. Higher education is the source or the feeder system which provides the much needed human resources in management, planning, design, teaching and research. Scientific and technological advancement and economic growth of a country are very much dependent on higher education. Quality has become a defining element in the 21st century. The rapid growth of higher education over the years has resulted in dilution of its quality and standard, which has directly affected the quality of man-power produced. The need of quality higher education is on constant increase in India, as we have to keep at par with the advanced countries for the world in terms of quality.

This book mainly focuses on the importance and improvement of higher education in India in general and North Eastern states specially as the scenario of higher education here is not so encouraging. It is recorded that higher education is confined only to 6.39% of the total population in North East. The book highlighted many problems of higher education in the North Eastern Region like lack of attention in systematic educational planning where North East Region is found to be lagging behind in terms of quality education and lack of constructive professional higher educational institutions as compared to other regions of India. The value of higher education is deteriorating. It was also examined that many of our youths are moving away from North East in search of quality higher education. Employment is another problem here as majority of the educated youths remain unemployed due to the lack of skill based courses. Paucity of financial allocation, regional backwardness, political negligence and poor administration in higher educational institutes in North-Eastern Region drives the colleges and universities into a disappointing condition. Therefore, quality higher education especially in north eastern region will help to circumvent the natural resource constraints and creation of knowledge infrastructure towards self-employment of the people."
