Problems And Prospects Of Higher Education In Manipur


  • Taorem Surendra Singh


Education is must to all from cradle to grave in the life of a man. Due the importance of it, Government of India has already launched universalization of primary education throughout the nation for the children between the ages of 6 to 14 years under the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA),the article-21(A) of constitution of India. However, only primary education can't prepare the job of an individual for livelihood. So, universalisation of secondary education is also launched as one of the national missions under the scheme of Rashtriya Midhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan. On other hand, the secondary education could not fulfill the needs of an individual as well as society. So, there is need of universalisation higher education throughout nation for a knowledge based society. On basis of its mission, many universities and colleges have been establishing at different locations of different states. But, by the simply establishments of colleges and universities, the dream of nation that knowledge based society could not be fulfilled without the internal quality control management system of institutions. The article tries to find out, not only the problems faced by the colleges and department concerned, but, also the prospects to be taken up by the college as well as the Department of Education (U), in order to improve Higher Education in Manipur under vision of the quality higher education to be reached at the global standard. Key words: Education, higher education, problems and prospects, Manipur higher education
