NEP will sow seeds for starting a new era, give new direction to 21st-century India

November 09, 2020

Original Article:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said when India would complete 75 years of Independence in 2022, students should be learning as per the New Education Policy (NEP) 2020.

“This is our collective responsibility,” he said, addressing a conclave on ‘School Education in 21st Century’ under the NEP-2020.

While seeking to allay reservations regarding the National Education Policy 2020, including on the issue of language, the Prime Minister stated that with the NEP 2020, students would learn under a curricular that is forward-looking and scientifically oriented in order to make the country ready for challenges in the 21st century.

“It is a curriculum that focuses on critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and curiosity,” the PM said, adding that students also needed to be aware about coding, artificial intelligence, data science and robotics.

While the earlier system was limited, the new policy offers many opportunities.

“Students who feel that they want to change their subject at a later stage will have the freedom to do so. Limitations in the current system is the main reason for a large number of drop-outs but under the new system, students will have freedom,” he said.
