Facilitating young minds towards holistic development.
The Ministry of Human Resource Development has created a quixotic National Education Policy, 2020 that includes various aspects like the psychology of an individual, revamping the administration and regulation of education. A joint task force has been created comprising the Ministry of Women and Child Development, Health and Family Welfare (HFW), and Tribal Affairs for planning and implementation of the policy. The improvised system of assessment namely PARAKH (Performance Assessment, Review and Analysis of Knowledge for Holistic development) gives a ray of hope that education will no longer be a formality but be a sign of excellence and quality. This article explores and analysis the policy.
Albert Einstein has rightly said that “Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think”, thus, the National Education Policy, 2020 is one step forward in that direction as it extensively focuses on vocational, experiential, and application-based learning which is the need of the hour.
