The NEP spells a long-term vision with far-reaching impact, the President said in his address to the nation on the eve of Independence Day.
The new National Education Policy (NEP) is going to strengthen the culture of inclusion, innovation, and institution, and build a quality education system, said President Ramnath Kovind in his address to the nation on the eve of Independence Day.
He said, "I am confident that with the implementation of this policy, a new quality education system will be developed and this will transform the future challenges into opportunities, paving the way for a new India. Our youth will be able to freely choose their subjects according to their interests and talents. They would have an opportunity to realise their potential. Our future generations will not only be able to get employment on the strength of such abilities but will also create employment opportunities for others. The NEP spells a long-term vision with far-reaching impact. It will strengthen the culture of 'inclusion', 'innovation' and 'institution' in the sphere of education. Imparting education in the mother tongue has been given emphasis in order to help young minds grow spontaneously. This will strengthen Indian languages as well as the unity of the country. Youth empowerment is essential for building a strong nation. The National Education Policy is a right step in this direction.”
He further added, "The closure of our educational institutions would have caused anxiety among our girls and boys, casting a shadow over their dreams and aspirations for the time being. However, I would like them to remember that these difficult times won't last and they should not give up working for their dreams. The past is full of inspiring examples of exciting reconstruction of societies, economies and countries after such devastations. I am sure that our country and youth have a bright future. These lessons will prove useful to humanity. The younger generation has learned the lessons well, and I believe that the future of India is safe in their hands.”
The new National Education policy is replacing the 34-year-old National Policy on Education framed in 1986 and is expected to bring sweeping changes into the education system of India.
