In the #EducationForAll series of #CauseAChatter, our aim is to simplify the explanation of implementation of NEP 2020.

 

Functioning of Education Bodies in NEP 2020

 

·      Implementation of the NEP 2020 in the long run and for it successfully to run it requires an establishment of Apex advisory body for Indian education, IES – Indian Education Services.

 

·      For National education policy to function wisely it advocates formation of Rashtriya Shiksha Aayog (RSA). This apex body will be duly replacing the central advisory board of education (CABE).

 

·      RSA, will be chaired by Ministry of Education and consists of 30 members in it. Two-third of the members of RSA will be educators, eminent researchers and leading professionals from various fields of health, art, science, social work& agriculture. The members will be from Indian and also distinguished people from Indian origin residing in other country.

 

·      RSA will also have few Union Ministers on rotation (State & Centre), whose ministries directly impact the education sector such as health and child development. of State and UT’s plus also include Secretaries in Education Ministry, NITI Aayog.

 

·      RSA will take the leap and make the functionality of all the proposed functions in NEP 2020, this body will also work closely with corresponding State education bodies for easy implementation of the policy.

·      The RSA will have a Permanent Secretariat of the Rashtriya Shiksha Aayog (PSRSA) , headed by Executive Director who will be person with the in depth knowledge of education system. PSRSA will work with RSA to implement the vision of NEP 2020.

·      Similarly, to RSA a body known as Rajya Shiksha Aayog (RjSA) will be created in each state so that the execution of the policy is done with the co-ordination with RSA.

·      Importantly the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) will be res-designated as Ministry of Education (MoE). The current role of MoE will be mapped with RSA for better functionality of the policy.

Policy mentions Quality Education For All : NEP 2020

·      To achieve the goal of world-class education, policy foresees an increase of public investment – by both the governments (State & Centre) and aims to reach 6% of GDP.

·      Policy will also ensure the higher education of the underprivileged groups closely.

·      Atleast 2% of the total budget in higher education will be marked for research and innovation.

·      After one-time investment there are many areas that will be worked to keep the education system function properly year after year.

·      Policy also call all the philanthropist to contribute generously towards the education sectors and in addition policy also mentions any contribution raised by for example Alumni groups and development offices will not see the cut in public funds.

·      NEP 2020 also will keep an eye on education institutions for the fee structure and various activities as policy believes education is for public good and should not only become source of profit. This is intended to be light check but surely a tight one on all education institutions as mentioned in the policy.

Implementation Vision of NEP 2020

·      Implementation of NEP 2020 solely lies in the intent that is betterment of the education in India.

·      Policy is set to run in phased manner as each policy pointer has several steps and each step is dependent on the completion of the previous one.

·      Most urgent and critical [pointers needs to be addressed first for the better functionality of the entire policy.

·      As the policy is interconnected and is deepened to ensure education sector a good change all the pointers needs to be full-fledged functional.

·      Education is a concurrent sector, so reviewing and functioning of Centre & State needs to be in sync.

·      All these implemented within a time frame with the help of all the prerequisite resources would definitely bring in change very soon. Thus would require honest feedback and hard work from each and every individual to bring in a positive change in coming years.

·      And lastly careful reviewing of all the policy at each stage while checking the parallel approach of State & Centre is vital.

·      Subject Matter Expert of each field contributing to successfully completion of the policy is required and every formed body RSA, RjSA  will be working in sync for the implementation of the policy.

·      NEP 2020 visions that by 2030, the decade will give ample opportunities for the education bodies to see the complete function of the policy pointers at each stage.

Education can bring a change in view and the pointers of NEP 2020 visions for the growth of the education field in turn growth of each aspiring student who can manifolds the growth of the nation. To build a nation with progressive approach NEP 2020 will surely need tremendous work done by all the people in education field.

  5. The new education policy is such a huge respite. Many students have been demanding for a change in our age-old, archaic education system. With the changing demands of the workplaces, it is important to teach students the necessary life skills that not just focuses on book reading and passive learning, but on overall development of the child. I welcome this change wholeheartedly :)
