To implement the National Education Policy, 2020 the Union education ministry has urged teachers across India to suggest ways. The NEP has been approved by the Union Cabinet recently.
The ministry has introduced a list of questions through which the teachers have been asked to submit their inputs related to school education. A letter was sent by school education secretary Anita Karwal to all states for the suggestions.
“To simplify the process for the teachers, the suggestions are being called on each theme of the NEP 2020 related to school education…through a question-answer process. The questions are framed in such a manner that teachers can relate to them from their experience as teachers and classroom transactions,” an official statement by the government said.
The submitted suggestions will be reviewed by a team of experts from the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT). Many experts while hailing the broad contours in the policy have said that implementation of many projects–as proposed–could be tedious and even difficult.
“Though suggestions are being called in a limited words format, however, for gathering further information, if required, teachers whose suggestions are found useful for incorporating in National Curriculum Framework or in the implementation plan, shall be individually contacted,” said the education ministry.
Through the NEP, the government has proposed some sweeping changes in the school education sector that includes providing early childhood education to young kids through anganwadis and restructuring of the extant 10+2 structure to 5+3+3+4 structure covering ages 3-18.
