New education policy
Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said, “Cabinet under Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given approval to new education policy for the 21st century. It is important, as for 34 years there were no changes in the education policy.” The Cabinet has also approved a proposal to rename the Ministry of Human Resource Development as the Ministry of Education.
THE NEW EDUCATION POLICY 2020
- The New Education Policy has distorted the system of 10+2 and changed it to 5+3+3+4 i.e. 5 years of primary education, 3 years of preparatory stage, 3 years of the middle stage, and 4 years of secondary school. This means that examination will only be held
For classes 5th
• The foundation stage will include the 3 years of pre-primary and 2 years of class 1 and 2. At this stage, students will be taught through different activities about the basics of education, resulting in decreasing the burden of books on the children’s shoulders and also building the practical approach towards anything
• The sub-middle stage(class 3–5) will include the introduction of science, social science , maths, humanities etc. To the students.
• The middle stage(class 5–8) will have the destined syllabus prepared by the NCERT.
• The last stage(9–12) will include specializing students in a particular subject by increasing their analytical skills in that very particular subject. Also, students will be encouraged to focus on only one things at a time, eventually increasing their concentration towards their goals..
Division of streams on the basis of marks would be dissolved:- Now an arts student will be able to study physics, if he wish for. And if a accounts student wants to study history, then he will be able to do so. It’s a possibility that subject pools would be made under which the collection of some subjects from all streams would be put on!!!
Coding era is coming…:- The art of making and designing the software, mobile applications would be taught through computer coding courses from class 6.
Internship courses would be available from class 6:- As I already said, specialzation in a particular field will be given more importance over the conventional knowledge. The students from class 6 to above will be able to do internship courses. Viz. If the student is interested in singing, then he/she could go to a singer, and get an internship over their, with proper documenting related to his/her academic performance!!
Board exams’ focus would be on the comprehensive, practical and analytical knowledge of the students .
Report cards would be prepared on the basis of 360 degree assessment of the students. In this, the subject teachers, the students’ classmates and the student himself/herself would asses themselves on the basis of marks.
• National testing Agency will offer a single exam policy to students for admission to colleges.
• National Professional Standards for Teachers will be implemented across the country for the teachers to set a benchmark of what kind of education they need to deliver.
• Financial support for students Efforts will be made to incentivize the merit of students belonging to SC, ST, OBC, and other SEDGs. The policy aims to achieve 100% of youth and adult literacy. To provide a world-class education at a school level.
Changes to Examinations & Focus on Multilingualism: Board exams will be made easier;
testing primarily core capacities/competencies rather than rote learning.
For any graduation course if the student completes only one year he will get a basic certificate, if he completes two years then he will get a Diploma certificate and if he completes the full course then he will get a degree certificate. So no year of any student will vested if he breaks the course in between.
Now we can hope our education system will be with modern countries and the future of our children will be bright.
