The New National Education Policy 2020
The new National Education Policy (NEP) is the first holistic reform that lay out a compelling, ambitious agenda for education reform and aims to completely change education system in India. It’s the first of its kind on education since the Constitution of India was created more than seven decades ago. The NEP can be seen as a continuation of the ideals and principles listed out in the Constitution, as the Policy itself claims to ‘‘build an equitable, inclusive, and plural society as envisaged’ in the Constitution’. Lofty goals, however, the changes listed in the NEP, if implemented correctly, have the enormous potential to bring Indian education to global levels and completely reform society. Yet, as few have noted, without concerted action, the NEP’s promise will remain unfulfilled. In this episode Dr. Nath discuss on the issue and share his opinion and views on the subject.
