Until and unless the responsibilities are not taken care, the human rights are not implemented. The privatization of education has brought the moral degradation in the educational institutions. This can be checked through implementation of moral and religious education in the curriculum. The students must be taught the moral ethical and social values to live happily in the society. The student community must be taken care of the society in preserving the human values and responsibilities through proper education. Mere studying the curriculum is not sufficient to live in the society. Passing the examinations getting degrees and employment cannot fulfill the complete life of the people.
