Teaching is a profession of interdependence
I have been in the education industry for two decades now. I have a lot of experience and hence, I will answer your question in brief. I believe that this industry is proactive.

I have witnessed the quality of education that these institutes provide and believe me when I say it is below par.

Political intervention is very common in West Bengal
Yes, we face a lot of challenges from the political changes in the state. Political intervention in the admission procedure is very common in West Bengal. Along with interventions in the admission procedure, the political leaders also ask us to reduce the fees and stuff like that.
Placements are an essential part of our curriculum
See the more placements we give, the more students will enroll in our college. Placements are the first thing that the students during the admission look for. It is a good thing as the time has changed. Now students are clearer about their future. As soon as they finish their education they want to get a job. This is where the college plays an important role.
