NEP 2020 brought about a path-breaking approach to education and learning to the schools in our nation. It has a truly global outlook with fresh ideas and propositions to ensure that every child, irrespective of their location, will receive education. Moreover, NEP 2020 focuses on preparing children for a sustainable future.
When you look at every aspect of NEP, you feel that you connect with it and want it to come to life, sooner than later.
Despite the glorious impact of this educational policy being implemented, the challenges are not uncommon. One of the major red flags in NEP can be attributed to the non-partisan agreement on education. The funding for the functioning of schools, the digital divide, and the relationship between private and public partnerships are some of the other confronting factors in executing a successful policy.
If the entire government in the country agrees that education will be out and above politics, then probably half the problem is solved.
With the onset of the global pandemic, schools and educators turned to digitalised methods of teaching while encouraging flipped learning among students. As a result, the child-centric approach, experiential learning, and employing technology have been executed by schools. There has to be a constant effort and preparation throughout this direction to carry forth the policy. The government and CBSE are constantly working to equip educators, schools, and leaders with this vision.
A teacher is the core of every reform, the pivotal factor through which changes happen. NEP recognises the dismal condition of education and this, in turn, can be responsible for not refracting the best candidates in teaching. Several alterations have been made by NEP for attractive teaching skills and cultivating the passion for teaching.
A policy remains a policy until and unless someone is empowered to lead the change.
NEP reflects on three important principles - lesson presentation, expression of learning and engagement with the teaching-learning process. The uniqueness of each student lies within the system that moulds them as individuals. Laying equal emphasis on every aspect of education, including scholastic and non-scholastic areas will help to understand the strength of each child.
