Raipur, Chhattisgarh, India, Monday, 19 October 2020
The National Education Policy-2020 envisages the holistic development of our young generation since childhood, so that they can not only make all round progress in life by becoming qualified in terms of educational and skill development, but also to become a sensitive human being. In this education policy, efforts have been made to make education and knowledge India-centric. This was stated by Governor Ms. Anusuiya Uike while addressing a national webinar on 'New Education Policy-2020: Consideration of stakeholders' under joint auspices of Kushabhau Thackeray University of Journalism and Mass Communication, Raipur, Publication Bureau, Himachal Pradesh and Central University, Dharamshala. They said He said that the policy has also tried to mold the quality of education and research in line with international standards so that our students can get higher quality education in their home country instead of the attraction of going abroad for higher education.
The Governor said that India has been intellectually guiding the entire world since ancient times and has been a real force, which has been accepted by the whole world. This has happened due to our education. The new education policy will prepare us to set up in a new environment by making necessary changes in our education system. The Governor thanked the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi and said that the new Education Policy-2020 he has conceptualized will help in realizing the dream of self-reliant India. At the same time, it will provide inspiration to the youth and will create a new India.
He said that the most important recommendation in relation to higher education in the new education policy is in relation to large and multidisciplinary universities and institutes of higher education. If we remember, such multidisciplinary institutes were already here in our ancient times, which have made a name in the whole world. In the new education policy, a major objective of increasing the universal access to education has been accomplished by increasing the right to education till the age of 18 so that no child is deprived of education. He said that agriculture, which has been considered the backbone of the Indian economy, has also been recommended to open an agricultural technology park in the country to give more importance to the mainstream of education so that traditional agriculture can be given more scientific form.
The Governor suggested that where there is a large number of tribes, education should be provided in their spoken languages. Also, teachers of that language should be appointed at the local level. He suggested that there is immense knowledge in rural areas, especially tribal society, such as herds and forest wealth. There is a need to preserve this discipline and make it a curriculum and incorporate it into higher education.
The webinar was also addressed by Prof. Baldev Bhai Sharma, Vice Chancellor of Kushabhau Thackeray Journalism and Mass Communication University, Prof. Kuldeep Chand Agnihotri, Chancellor of Himachal Pradesh Central University, Dr. Pankaj Mittal, Secretary General of Association of Indian Universities, Prof. Rajkumar, Vice Chancellor, Punjab University, Chandigarh .
