On the new National Education Policy, Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyak will be conducting a question and answer session with students, teachers, parents, and other stakeholders. The new NEP 2020 was approved by the cabinet and introduced in July 2020 after a gap of 34 years.
The introduction of the NEP 2020 has brought in numerous queries since the changes incorporated in and are hard to understand with regard to the continuation of education for the students.
Those who have queries related to the National Education Policy can send in their questions to the minister with a hashtag #NEPTransformingIndia on Twitter and Facebook. The Union Minister will interact with stakeholders through social media.
The new policy will bring on major changes in the school and college level education along with the hiring of teachers. The major change introduced in the NEP includes the change in the 10+2 school system which has now been changed to 5+3+3+4 format. This in turn will change the board exams and the assessment system. The teaching mode has also been changed with the introduction of the mother tongue as a medium until class 5.
Admissions to colleges will include mandatory entrance examinations along with multiple entries and exit points during the course.
Many stakeholders lauded the new National Education Policy 2020.
