New education policy is a welcome move, says Asif

NEW DELHI: The All India Minority Front (AIMF) has welcomed the new National Education Policy (NEP) approved by the Cabinet on Wednesday, while emphasizing the immense difficulties the government would face in implementing it.

The much-awaited policy which was part of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s manifesto ahead of the 2014 general election drafted in 1986 and updated in 1992. It will bring several changes to the education system — from the school to college level.

Describing the NEP as a welcome move, Mr SM Asif, national president of AIMF said that the current policy is several decades old and the new policy is expected to introduce fresh ideas, particularly on the use of technology, modern teaching pedagogies and experiential learning.

The new policy — which addresses education at all levels, from early childhood to higher education — calls for significant restructuring of India’s higher education landscape, Mr Asif said.

Among major changes under the NEP are — renaming the Ministry of Human Resource Development as the Education Ministry, having a central body that will regulate the state-level education boards, teaching in multiple languages including regional languages. National Tutors Programme, Remedial Instructional Aides Programme, an extension of Right to Education, are among several changes under the NEP.
