Current Status: Meerut is an education hub with 5 universities in the district. It is one of the biggest centres in North India of printing and publishing of textbooks and other literature. But, quality of education has remained subpar compared to Delhi and other places leading to exodus. Further, at school level, most of these have not adjusted themselves to medium of instruction which has moved to English as preferred one.
Support Required: Municipal Corporation and District Education Officer have significant responsibility of improving the quality of education. There is need for more active collaboration between administration and institutions. Further, the syllabus of the higher education needs to be relevant to current requirements. The New Education Policy has hardly found to have been assimilated even by teachers.
