NATIONAL EDUCATION POLICY 2020
The central government on July 29, 2020, announced the New Education Policy to improve the quality of education in India.
The policy covers elementary education to colleges in both rural and urban India.
The NEP 2020 is visionary, practical, progressive and very comprehensive.
It is based on the ground reality of the country’s education scenario that puts more emphasis on the creativity, innovation and personality development of the students rather than expecting them to score high by memorizing content without conceptual understanding.
It has several promises to keep and appears to be timely in several regards but much of it depends on how it is implemented.
