National Education Policy…..At A Glance And it’s Overall Impact On Nation Building
“Education is the most powerful weapon, which you can use to change the world.”
National Educational Policy (NEP):
Union cabinet paved the way for transformative reform in school and higher education system by launching the New National Education Policy (NEP) on 29th July 2020. They also renamed MHRD as Ministry of Education. After the old national education policy which was launched way back in 1986, this is the first education policy of 21st century that has replaced 34 years old education policy. The new NEP is based on four pillars which are Access, Equity, Quality, and Accountability.
Built on the foundational pillars of Access, Equity, Quality, Affordability and Accountability, this policy is aligned to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and aims to transform India into a vibrant knowledge society and global knowledge superpower by making both school and college education more holistic.
Education is a basic ingredient for achieving full human potential. Providing universal access to an education of high quality is the key to India’s continued ascent, progress and leadership on the global stage-in terms of economic development, social justice and equality, environmental stewardship, scientific advancement and cultural preservation. India possesses the highest number of young people of any country entering school over the next decade and the extent to which high quality educational opportunities are presented to them will determine the direction of the future of India and its people.
The aim must be for India to have an education system by 2030 with access to the highest-quality education for all learners regardless of circumstances of birth or background. To achieve this, actions must be taken now and with urgency.
Through this NEP 2020 government is looking forward to making India a “global knowledge superpower” and it will be only done by making education system for schools and colleges more flexible, holistic and multi-disciplinary which will bring out their unique capabilities.
The focus areas of the NEP(2020) reforms seek to cultivate ’21st-century skills’ among students, including critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity and digital literacy. It recognises the need to bridge the gap in education through technology and digitilisation.The new initiatives such as National Digital Education Architecture (NDEAR) and National Education Technology Forum (NETF) are absolutely vital to reform education by bringing in digital technology. This will provide the much- needed impetus to achieve scale and quality in education at a small marginal cost and make it affordable to the common man.
