Want to reverse brain drain: Javadekar
Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar on Friday said good education was key to any country’s sustainable progress, and the government was launching several initiatives to reverse the `brain drain’.
Countries with good universities achieve “sustainable progress” and “where the quality of education is not good, that country does not progress,” said Javadekar, speaking at convocation of Savitribai Phule Pune University here.
“My best of the best students are going out (of the country)” despite the government investing a lot in the education and “that is my worry”, he said. Students go abroad because they get good resources and infrastructure for research, scholarships, etc., the minister said.
