2020 will be remembered for two big milestones by Indian educators – The pandemic and launch of the National Education Policy 2020. While the jury may be out on the pros and cons of NEP 2020 but one thing that everyone agrees is that it is forward thinking and lays a strong foundation for elevating our educational standards. In many ways NEP 2020 will be revolutionary, however, the big question remains – How will it get implemented?
The aspect of NEP 2020 that impressed me the most is the focus on reducing academic rigour and allocating sufficient focus on preparing children to live a better life. There is a lot of emphasis on Life Skills Education (LSE) & Social Emotional Learning (SEL) along with encouraging Talent Development and Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) among students. The onus now lies with the education boards like CBSE and ICSE along with the respective state governments to implement these policies.
