According to the Union Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani, Indian Government is going to implement its New Education Policy (NEP) from the next academic year. She declared about the new policy while attending a valedictory function of the 21st Annual Sahodaya Conference of CBSE at Neary Nedumbssery.
According to Irani, “We will start a new educational policy soon. Educational policy takes seven months to three years and politicians, bureaucrats and experts draw it up. But there is need to involve principals, teachers and students.” This move could well put in transparency in deciding the policy which could further benefit the common people and their children. Irani further added, “The future of the country lies in the hands of teachers and principals. I say this not only as an HRD minister, but as also a mother of two CBSE school going kids.”
Going by the record that has proven that the education policy in our country was influenced by the interest of various political bodies and bureaucrats and this is the time to transform India for the better. Irani launched a tool for complete self-review in schools named ‘Saransh’. This would be helpful for the students who undergo learning challenges and keep on trying to study hard to get into the line of talented students.
"I stand here as witness of the desire of people to seek transformation and this cannot happen only in government. It should happen at the grassroots and teachers should be a vehicle to bring about the change," she said.
