Creativity, independence and private institutions

Aamir Shahzad.

There is a general feeling that in Pakistan, public sector institutions have failed to provide a disciplined academic life for students. Moreover lack of accountability for teaching faculty- too smug in security of their jobs-has resulted in a total collapse of academic and professional milieu.

Feeling a vacuum private enterprise has stepped into medical education and treats it as a business, trying to put a strong rein on students and teaching faculty. The business sector in order to avoid pitfalls of public sector has ignored that in professional colleges and institutes of higher learning, a little bit of job security for teaching faculty and independence for students is must for creativity and grooming of intellect.
“To encourage real creativity, you need to have a good deal of slack”, said James Watson, who along with Frances Crick figured out the structure of DNA. It is rumored that he deliberately used to untie his shoelaces before going to a formal (suit and tie) meeting.

Key words: Creativity, private colleges, teaching
