NEP 2020

"The new education policy that Prime Minister has formulated is connected with the roots of India. This policy was formulated after incorporating everyone's views." Nadda said.

"The government is seeking paragraph-wise suggestions for the NEP and countries around the world have shown interest in the implementation of the police in their countries as well," he added.

The NEP 2020 aims to develop India into an equitable and vibrant knowledge society. It envisions an India-centred education system that contributes to transform India into global superpower.

PM Modi said that the NEP will prepare the country's youth on parameters of both knowledge and skill needed in the future.

After honouring 44 Best Teachers, CM Rupani said that government schools in the state have become better than private schools, said that now the reverse trend of admission from private school to government school has started.

NEP 2020 has been formulated after an unprecedented process of consultation that involved nearly over 2 lakh suggestions from 2.5 lakhs Gram Panchayats, 6600 Blocks, 6000 ULBs, 676 Districts.

In Tripura, schools are mostly run by the state government or by the private organisations. The medium of instruction is mainly English or Bengali. Kokborok and other tribal languages are also used.

On a policy that impacts and affects our present and future generations, even Parliamentary oversight has been circumvented. Contrast this with the rigorous parliamentary and widespread consultation that preceded the Right to Education Act.

Since education is a concurrent, the NEP only provides broad directions. The reforms proposed can only be implemented collaboratively by the Centre and the states.

The new education policy will reduce the race for marks and shear pressure on the students. Due to race to get good marks and to be in the top, many good students are losing their creativity.
