Earlier in September, Shikshak Parv – a two-week duration program was conducted to address similar doubts and questions from teachers across the country on NEP 2020. Several doubts and suggestions on the NEP 2020 were addressed and shared. The Education Ministry as a part of Shikshak Parv conducted several conclaves, webinars, and award distribution processions to take the NEP 2020 ahead.
Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that by the year 2022 every student in India will be indulged into the NEP. He added that the students will no more be limited to the watertight boundaries of science, commerce, and arts and will be able to choose any subject they wish to choose. It will therefore bring the emphasis of scores and results-based education system to the leaning based education system.
The new NEP 2020 aims to bring changes in the conventional 34-year-old policy and brings the major changes in school and college level education system.
