PM MODI’S INSIGHT INTO NATIONAL EDUCATION POLICY
Work on National Education Policy started over 4-5 years ago. Millions of people – both rural, urban and people associated to the education sector had given their suggestions for NEP.
Education policy and education system are important means of fulfilling the aspirations of the country. Centre, state government, local bodies, all are attached to the responsibility of education system. But it is also true that the government, its interference in education policy, its impact, should be minimal.
This education policy is not of the government, but of the country. Like the foreign and defence policy is not of the government, but of the country.
NEP has opened the way for the establishment of the best international institutions’ campus in India to tackle brain drain and also for youth from ordinary families.
The more teachers and parents are connected to education policy, the more students will be connected, the more its relevance and comprehensiveness increases.
Whether there is a teacher or a big educationist in the village, everyone is looking at the national education policy, their education education policy. There is a feeling in everyone’s mind that I wanted to see this improvement in the earlier education policy. This is a big reason for accepting the National Education Policy.
The pressure on students for specific streams have been removed. Our youth will now be able to learn according to their interests. Earlier, students used to pick a stream beyond their aptitude and they realised it much later. Such problems have been done away with in NEP.
India has been ancient centre of learning, we are working to make it hub of knowledge economy in 21st century.
National Education Policy will prepare the youth of the country with knowledge and skills as per the future requirements. In this policy, more than process, emphasis is given on Passion, Practicality and Performance.
Vocational exposure from childhood itself will better prepare our youth for future, practical training will enhance their employability and also increase our participation in the global job market.
