New Education Policy
After a long-awaited time, Modi Sarkar launched the most needed new education policy, It will be the fundamental change for the youth, and the diversity of the education system makes it useful.
There is no doubt COVID-19 is the worst year of the century; it is no good so far and out of the blue, the new education policy provides a grin on the prudent minds of India. They know very well the value and need of this education system because they are the sufferers of this British’s slavery education system.
Modi Sarkar addresses the problem in our educational institution such as bookish (mugging up), bookworms, zero practical knowledge, and no innovative thought education.
What is the reason we can’t find another Ramanujan, even after century? Why is India not innovating anything new but producing labour for the global market? And there are lots of what and why present in our education system.
The rotten education policy eats the young’ innovative minds
Modi governance found the root cause of the problem in our education policy and whipped it with high hands.
Changes in Education Policy
1. PRE-PRIMARY SCHOOL And New Education Policy-2019
Pre-primary school Structure: Indian government understands the importance of pre-primary education, that’s why it divides the foundational stage into two parts (age of 3-8), 3 years of preschool (Anganwadi) and two years of primary classes 1-2. Now students can start their education at the age of 3.
2. PRIMARY SCHOOL And New Education
After primary education, students will enter primary education in the age group of 8-11 years, where they will study in classes 3-5. Teachers will put more emphasis on the students; health, analytical skills, mathematical approach, reasoning, logical thinking and creative thinking. Classes will be more engaging and pedantic than book-based learning.
3. SECONDARY SCHOOL And New Education policy-2019
From class 6th (age of 11-14 years) onward additional vocational programs will be added. (Plumbing, gardening, carpentering, etc.) There will provide deeper and particle knowledge in subjects like sciences, mathematics, arts, social sciences, and humanities.
Education systems will abate by mugging education far behind and more concentrate on conceptual knowledge, which is a need of time.
According to the NEP-2019 (new education policy-2019), at primary school level students will take the exam only for classes 3, 5 and 8.
The whole system is designed in this manner to promote creativity, analysis, critical reasoning and decision-making abilities rather than put a grade stump on students’ faces.
4. SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL And New Education policy-2019
After completing class 8th, the students will join senior secondary school between 14-18 years. This phase comprises two stages: in the first stage, students will study in classes, 9-10 and 11-12 in the second stage.
The major change is, students will have options to choose multidisciplinary courses, now it’s not dividing into three parts like before (science, commerce, arts). Students can select their courses according to their interest and study with greater interest, greater analytical approach, greater learning manner,
Amid all this, students will gain a sense of responsibility and decision-making abilities, which will help them in their future life.
Rejuvenation of the education policy primarily aims to develop more intellectual and optimization of the student’s talent.
Top Ten Changes In The New Education Policy
1. NEP-2019 more oriented on practical knowledge than memorizing facts. It is peculiarly multidisciplinary which develops a child’s inner flair splendidly.
2. NEP-2019 severely concentrated on a child’s brain development, critical thinking, decision-making, logical and analytical thinking when these factors put into an organized system will seem synergy.
3. Vocational training programs in non-traditional fields like plumbing, carpentering, etc will connect the young generation to practicality and will clear the purpose of education.
4. In early age childeren will have time to choose their preferred subjects to work on, which gives them more time to excel in it, along with which they can choose more diversity according to their interest, not everyone wants to become a Ramanujan but some people want to be a Nirala.
5. Without rhyme or reason, English is getting more superiority than requires. In our modern society, it’s a symbol of a well-educated person, passively we consider English speakers are more intelligent than any other language speakers (local languages), it is absurd to give more importance to language than knowledge.
Now Modi government is planning to eradicate the lecherous structure and will promote local language in primary education and in secondary education structure, students can choose any other language as a subject (French, English, Spanish, etc.)
6. Now extra-curriculum, co-curriculum activities will be the part of major subjects so if any student is good in sports but not in other subjects, he will get credit scores for those activities too, so now he will have an equal chance to balance out his mark sheet grades.
7. The credit score system is a beauty of the New Education policy-2019, now college students can change their course frequently if at any stage they feel left out or not fit for the course, and they will get a certificate and credit score according to their graduation’s level.
These credit scores help them join a new program course and resume their study.
8. NEP-2019, focus on research work in which last year’s students can research; they don’t have to wait to join the master’s program or M.PHIL program for that. Even the government is thinking of the eradication of M. PHIL’s program from the education system.
9. The central body Indian educational ministry and MHRD are planning to establish a centralized body over the all-state educational ministry; it will be beneficial for monitoring and controlling the other state educational bodies.
It will enhance the decision-making capabilities of what will take less time to imply any new policies.
10. Higher education And New Education policy-2019
We all know the future is belonging to technology but the present system still belongs to the Stone Age, students learning practical knowledge from books. How ironical is this? But not anymore. Now on, after 6th class students will learn to code, robotics and AI (artificial intelligence), which helps them to understand the cyber world at a very early age.
Bill Gates and Elon Musk have been doing coding since the age of 13 and 8 years, respectively.
If India wants to be a superpower, it’s mandatory for India to conquer the cyber world.
INDIA’S FUTURE And New Education Policy 2019
There is no doubt that India’s future is in safe hands. If India can do that much good in the present education system, you can imagine how well we will perform in the new education system.
Students will be more versatile than before. Imagine a student who has STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) knowledge, along with literature and dexterity in any instrument, how diverse personality he will possess.
Milliners (90s kid) will get goose-bump even after thinking about that.
The students will know the market very well because vocational training, research projects and industry visits now they will not like “frog in the well” who only know one thing – how to crack university exams, but now they will know how to crack real-world problems.
India will produce more athletics than before because students now take any sport as a major subject without worrying about the degradation of their grade.
Coding and robotics become a major part of the society nowadays, from gaming to the manufacturing field you will find coding and robotics simultaneously.
Automation and industrialization are synonyms of each other, and we can’t depend on other countries if we want to ATAMNIRBHAR-BHARAT.
Research funding would be the most useful and most needed thing for India’s intellectuals and educationalists who are craving for that.
If India wants to be super-powered, then it would be necessary to become independent in every field, especially in STEM, innovation, manufacturing plants and automation. All these things depend upon young researchers, entrepreneurs, and digital market experts.
New Education policy-2019
We can’t refuse the fact that Modi government and educational bodies have been working to rebuild the existing education system. But still, there is a long way to go home.
1. Although Indian teachers are the best in their work, the question is, how will they take this new education policy and implement it in practice? It is a new project, digitalization, coding, AI, vocational training. These types of programs need lots of attention and practice rather than regular bookish knowledge. So the concern is, how will they upgrade their slaves when they are getting a hard time teaching online during the pandemic?
2. School premises, although Modi government is doing fantastic work still, there are plenty of schools in which not even have basic facilities like smart classrooms, proper school premises, etc.
So the question is, how will they manage it? For coding, AI, sports facilities, music instruments that are tactful and expensive stuff.
3. Language barrier: now suppose if someone is living somewhere in southern India and suddenly he needs to change his state to northern India, now environment and language will completely change and there will be no common language.
So the question is, how will they learn and adapt to an unfamiliar environment?
4. Central body: to the centralization of power is not a good idea, it will dispose of the role of state government and will raise the interest of conflicts. And in exaggerated cases, it resembles a dictatorial form of leadership.
It is Callow the existence of state authorities. In the long-term, it will be the apple cord of the interest conflicts.
These are some concerns which need to be addressed by the existing government before finalizing the draft.
SUGGESTIONS And New Education policy 2019
Now we don’t want to repeat history again, filling in little circles on OMR sheets and answering pre-defined subjective papers is not a way to determine the proficiency of anyone; with these, it has lost the sole purpose of learning.
Accountability for teachers
All teachers should require a master’s degree before entering the profession and teaching programs/training will be more rigorous and holistic in the country. If a teacher is not performing well, the government should have a right to take cognizance of the matter.
Professional gaming facilities in schools
Although Modi government brings up that issue one step ahead still, India needs top-class sports facilities and infrastructure in every city for competing in the world level.
Make the basics a priority
The Indian education system is so concentrated on mark-sheet scores, grade and comprehension in STEM; they forget what makes up a bright, innovative and prudent student and learning environment.
• Education should be an instrument to balance our social inequality.
• All students receive free school meals.
• Ease of access to health care
• Psychological counselling
• Individualized guidance
Junior Research Fellowship
Art and Craft: when we talk about education policy, mostly we leave out art & craft, which is very important for any civilization. Without it, a child can’t reach his highest potential level.
Less homework and more knowledge required
The institution should design a new system where a student will get the least amount of work (homework) and maximum practical knowledge.
A system where students don’t need additional tutors, yet they perform outstandingly in every aspect.
The system needs to enhance less stress, less documentation and more caring culture.
IMPACT ON SOCIETY
The impact of the new education policy will differently be wonderful. A student who touches all the aspects of the education spiritual, intellectual, critical and logical, then there is no doubt that the upcoming generation will be splendid and come with many outstanding qualities,
They will differ completely from 90s kids because milliner kids are prepared to do platitude work from our education system, which is designed by the English people during the industrial revolution. That time they wanted cheap labourers who can work without using their creative mind.
But the problem with that policy, English left the country but the former Indian government still sees nothing wrong in that, it drives the young generation to halfwit and less creative compared to other countries.
We lose not only in the educational sector but because of this we are far behind in technology. Rotten education policies take us 100 years back.
Our education system is still following the colonial educator’s structured rotten education. Colonial education is always about making money and a big person.
But we know the sole purpose of education should be about spiritualism, enhancing inner qualities and finding who you really are.
If the Indian education system considers all of this point and ponders about it seriously, no one can stop us to become the next superpower and not only in technology, art, science, etc. but also in all aspects of life.
If India wants to become a superpower, then it is necessary for India to invest more in education sectors and research programs (around 5-6% of GDP).
For all that, it is necessary to invest more in education sectors and in research programs.
India and Indian people have all the potential learning capability and patience to achieve anything; we just need the right direction and motivation,
Because of Britain we already have lost our fruitful 60-70 years, and labour producing education has no future. It is dead inside.
We should be proud because finally, we are taking a step forward to freedom from the British“colonial education policy”.
