"no" to subsidised campus politics

Since our recalcitrant teachers cannot be disciplined by the law (for it seems that they are ‎above the law), and that they cannot discipline themselves, the only recourse for the ‎people of Bangladesh is to impose upon them the discipline of the market.‎

The public universities should be privatised: once private, they will charge market rates, ‎and teachers won't be able to moonlight as politicians and shut down the institutions. ‎

They will have to compete for market share: in short, they will have to start earning their ‎living, like the rest of us, instead of being subsidised by the rest of us. ‎

We, the people, refuse to subsidise campus politics. ‎
