SC: Matters of education must be left to educationists

The Hon’ble Supreme Court, on 12th October 2020, in the matter of Anand Yadav & Ors. v. State of Uttar Pradesh & Ors. observed that matters of education must be left to educationists. It is not the function of the Supreme Court to sit as an expert body over the decision of the experts.

The Hon’ble Supreme Court observed that:

Matters of education must be left to educationists, of course subject to being governed by the relevant statutes and regulations. It is not the function of the Supreme Court to sit as an expert body over the decision of the experts, especially when the experts are all eminent people. (Para 34)

Often, a proposition of law as laid down in a case is as good as the facts of the case. (Para 35)

Sometimes, without looking into the real ratio decidendi, a judgment is followed as a precedent. (Para 36)
