New Campus Order

For those who are university outsiders or who left campus long ago the following note on the current Ethiopian Higher education institution especially relating to universities can give a glimpse of picture to what is really going on the ground. Every university student prior to its campus experience used to think that, campus is a place where one can get a knowledge, a place where one can exercise his freedom and the right to decide what is best for him and at last a place where one person sow what he plough.
all the above expectation will start to erode step by step following your stay in campus. Currently the government is deafening our ears with the propaganda that they are boosting the enrolling capacity of student while on the other hand preferring to remain silent on the vast number of student that are getting evicted without spending a semester.
Incompetent lecturers who are power point dependant, inexperienced, undisciplined and who are decorated with MSC that still needs to be questioned about its quality and which is mainly imported from India a nation where being professor is not a big deal as eating injera in Ethiopia, the stubborn stance of Ministry of education in focusing boosting quantity are one of the many factors that is pushing the education system to nose diving quality. As long as there is plenty bed and a place to feed the student then MOE is not concerned about the burden students are forced to carry in sharing resources. Now a day’s opening a university for MOE is becoming as easy as planting a tent in a desert or forest.
Even though the government seems to be focusing on quality by appointing German directors and collaborating with German organization like GIZ, most of the appointed foreign directors still remain handicapped by the continuous interference of the government political disciples who like to steer things in every situation that doesn’t concern them.
In the older days university students be used to be influential in challenging not only bringing change in university administration structure but they also act as the main actors behind a drama that brings an ending to decade oppressing imperialism and the communist Derg regime without being afraid of the brutalizing force of the past two regimes. In order to avoid the déjà vu of the past student achievement the government is exerting relentless effort in silencing the student even from complaining about the unfair treatment they are subjected to live in campus.
In order to silence the student, the government clearly draws a new campus order by appointing student who is politically affiliated with the government, who sell their very soul to be designed, programmed and run by the architects of the regimes. The anti student disciples also don’t hesitate from spying or handing over their own friends and dorm mates for just expressing their views in a free way. The appointment of these students pushes aside the democratic election of active student who are keen to challenge any unfair system that is denying and crippling the better access the student deserve to earn especially in education
