Therefore, I will not compromise for anything that tries to pass itself as education, and would rather go for a well-defined, value-based system of education that carries a proper vision.
I have always been skeptical about the way education is commoditized in recent times. Many of my friends think in terms of ‘investing’ in a course that will give them heavy ‘returns’.
