Over the time a new term was being introduced known as “critical pedagogy”.  Many observed that the conservative technique does not guarantee overall development; instead it gave empowerment to some students over others. This created a social imbalance which needed to be clear out. Thus it in which a student association is made and their complaints are heard. And if their complaints are found logical, necessary changes are made in the institution.
