The Cabinet has approved the NEP, 2020, which aims to improve all aspects of India’s education system and bring it closer to the best global standards. A committee led by former Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) chief Dr. K Kasturirangan formed the Draft National Education Policy 2019 on the foundational pillars of ‘Access, Equity, Quality, Affordability, and Accountability.’ The new NEP replaces the one formulated in 1986.
Deputy CM Statement NEP:
Sisodia said that “It is a forward-looking document, which accepts the flaws of today’s education system but has two issues with it – it was unable to break free of the pressures of education’s old traditions and does not say how the reforms that it speaks of will be achieved. The policy is either silent or confused on these issues”.
“NEP 2020 outlines a system full of regulations and inspections but no concrete commitment to funding. There is no mention or plan on how these reforms will be achieved”, he said.
No Adequate Fund for highly-regulated Policy:
He further said that, “The policy recommends a highly-regulated and poorly-funded education model. There is an attempt to escape from the government’s responsibility to provide quality education in its schools,” said the deputy CM of Delhi and Fundamental teaching in mother tongue or region languages is a progressive step. We also welcome the focus on early childhood education”.
