INDIA: Higher education summit with US reveals gaps
Alya Mishra
The first India-US higher education summit,
between India’s Human Resources Minister Kapil Sibal and US Secretary of State
Hillary Clinton last week, was aimed at strengthening collaboration between the
two countries. It provided symbolic recognition of the importance of India’s
university and research sectors for international interaction. But in India
academics and students were expressed scepticism that it would yield any real
change in education outcomes, with a wide gap between India’s needs and what US
institutions might provide.
