Webinar on National Education Policy 2020: Challenges & Opportunities

RIMT Webinar

About Webinar

The NEP 2020 is an ambitious policy that offers a sea change to the Education ecosystem of the nation right from primary education to higher education. The policy aims to achieve both enrolment and improve literary trends that are globally benchmarked and equitable. The National education policy lays emphasis on different aspects of education including early childhood education, reconstructing curriculum and pedagogy, reforms in examination process and investment in teacher training. This is the first policy that seeks to unshackle students from the tyranny of administrative constraints with multiple-choice, multidisciplinary learning and multiple chances. However, before one jumps to applauding the NEP, one requires a deep dive into the current challenges that India’s education system faces at the grassroots level—the issue of bringing kids to school, retaining students (especially girls) in school, enabling teachers to deliver the NEP-imagined curriculums, creating and enabling sufficient technological infrastructure, delivering the committed education budgets and ensuring that every educated Indian is employable.

What we need to further question is if this NEP 2020
I) Will sufficiently address the above challenges,
ii) has a well-defined implementation roadmap and milestones,
iii) has critical finances for execution of this grand vision,
iv) ensures that it will not exacerbate the current educational divide between the marginalized and the privileged, and the rural and the urban children.
The proposed event and (panel discussion) will dwell upon the challenges and improvements, the NEP 2020 wishes to achieve by defining a roadmap for the Education Ecosystem of future.
