It is hard to shake off the feeling that young leaders cannot be given responsibility in a way that there is a risk of them overshadowing Rahul Gandhi.there is a well-meaning reformist structure: foundational courses,integrating mind and body, part honours research degree and part conventionally overloaded syllabi with rote learning In principleit is not a bad idea to think about pathways to higher education For examplecan students with an initial vocational training enter conventional systems But to assume that a high-end undergraduate degreeaiming at global benchmarking and a stream that allows students to drop out after two or three yearsshould exist as one integrated programme is to live in a pedagogic fantasy land: it risks both diminishing the standards for real honours students and leaving behind those who are not inclined to be challenged There will be no pedagogic identity left to the university The second issue is the question of interlocking parts The relationship between the foundational courses and choices students will have made in school is not clear We used to joke that India did not have a three-year undergraduate degreeit had a five-year degree The MA had become a remedial BA in many instances What is going to be the relationship between the four-year BA programme and other masters programmes Againin principlethere is scope for doing things like a one-year masters programme But againthese proposals are not about the identity of degrees: they are largely about checking off a mathematical formula on the number of years The third is the question of concrete tactics Admittedlyall reform is a matter of adaptation and adjustments will take place But the question is: are all the material preconditions for moving in the right direction in place DU has thousands of vacanciesand even though there is a promise to fill them upthere are questions about how quickly this can be done It is hard to assess workloads till the final course protocols are in place But it is very hard to avoid the impression thatwith the kind of workloads in placethe university will find it more difficult to attract teachers who also want to sustain research careers Many professors in the university are doing wonderful work But the nuts and bolts of what it now takes to service a large number of students stifles the creativity of so many teachers The tension between DU as a teaching and as a research university is bound to be exacerbated The fourth question is organisational For good or for illDUs strengths rested on a series of institutional commitments: autonomy to collegesa certain standing for different facultiesa toleration for a bit of internal institutional diversity among colleges and so on As the proposed reforms standall this is going to be fundamentally eroded Againthis is something that could be argued There is a case for expanding choice through inter-college coordination But will a decimation of the collegiate system serve the university well More importantlythe fundamental question plaguing higher education has remained unanswered: who should define the identity of the university And what is the role of each of the constituent parts in this definition Can the debate over autonomy simply be reduced to the autonomy of the vice chancellor We seem to want to copy the core of the American systemwithout the fundamental ingredient that makes that system tick: autonomy at different levels of the institution Individual facultyfor the most partin charge of the content and standards of their class room and so on But reform without taking on board autonomy of the constituent parts is like trying to do Hamlet without the Prince of Denmark The debate over DU reforms mirrors the pathologies of our larger politics The old system needed change But the need for reform has become a ruse for centralisation of power The relationship of reform to pedagogic objectives is tenuous Impatience with nuts and bolts threatens to imperil its success Many procedural niceties and due deference to form was put aside If Parliament can pass dozens of bills in a few minuteswhy cant an academic council clear courses in equal time Initiallythe debate oscillated between a decrepit ancien regime that many teachers represented and a Jacobin administration confusing change with improvement Sensiblepedagogically engaged and detail-oriented voices lacked conviction and were sidelined The social credibility of the professoriat had sunk so low that it was easy to marginalise themto portray them as self-serving naysayers standing in the way of a forward looking vision DU urgently needs to find its centrea path between a thoughtless revolution and an obdurate conservatism Whether such a path is possible is for the university to decide But the risk of losing the colossus amongst Indian universities is palpable;
