The Bangalore University (BU) Academic Council has unanimously resolved “not to affiliate” 36 erring B.Ed colleges from the next academic year. The council rejected reports of A S Seetharam, consultant, Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA), and N P Shahpur for recommendations being inconsistent with their findings.

While, the affiliation for 36 colleges has been renewed this year, affiliation for 25 non-functional BEd colleges has been withdrawn with effect from 2011-12.

Colleges such as KLE Society’s College of Education, Acharya College of Education, M S Ramaiah College of Education will lose affiliation next year, while Jnana Vikas College of Education, Rajiv Gandhi College of Education and others have lost affiliation from 2011-12. The Academic Council meeting was convened to discuss the reports of three expert committees on BEd colleges as categorised by the BU Task Force report, colleges with irregularities (category 3), colleges with gross irregularities (category 4) and non-functional colleges (category5).

“Colleges in categories 1 and 2 (satisfactory and improving colleges respectively) will be issued admission approvals as soon as the school calendar starts from June and there will be no delay in BEd classes, ,” said BU, Vice Chancellor B Thimme Gowda.

“The council resolved not to accept the reports of A S Seetharam, consultant, Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, and Nagappa P Shahpur, professor, Karnatak University, Dharwad, for recommendations being inconsistent with their findings,” the VC added.

“We are permitting colleges under category 3 and 4 to conduct exams for 2012-13 purely in the interest of students,” Gowda said, reported New Indian Express.
