India’s Kapil Sibal Says For-Profit Colleges Are Not Welcome In India
We are interested in what India’s Minister for Human Resources Development Kapil Sibal has to say about education… because he has an incredible dilemma to deal with in India. A population of students nearly the size of the United States and a bottle neck of supply for college spots. He is scrambling for solutions to the nation’s supply constraints. But, at a recent India-U.S. summit, he made clear that no “fly by night operators” would set up shop in India. He said “for profit companies” are not welcome in India right now.
“That is not the model I am looking at or even wanting to encourage. I don’t want India to be a ground in which on the fees that our children have to pay them for their studies they will give dividends to their shareholders”.
He is interested in having U.S.-based universities and community colleges find partners in India in forms of twinning arrangements, joint degrees and diploma courses.
“I don’t think that we will have Harvard, Yale or Princeton coming in and setting up campuses in India. I doubt that very much, I don’t think that is our vision either,” Sibal told reporters here after the conclusion of the day long summit that he co-chaired with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
