Luckless students at Lucknow

  • Comment

Student unrest may be perennial and universal, but a particularly severe version has broken out at Lucknow College of Architecture in India – and with good reason. The country’s Council of Architecture has refused to register the admissions of first-year and second-year batches of students ‘due to lack of faculty and infrastructure in the college’ according to the Times of India. The college principal Mukul Singh asked students to join their classes and ‘resolve problems through talks’ but they, not unreasonably refused since the lack of recognition means that they will be unable to practise on graduation. Instead they have boycotted classes and called for Singh’s removal, accusing him of ‘harassing innocent students in the name of discipline’. We may have had the odd problems here with institutions such as the University of Central England, but they pale into insignificance in comparison.
