Government launches consultations for drafting of new education policy

New Delhi: The government on Tuesday launched the exhaustive exercise for holding consultations aimed at the drafting of a new national education policy and invited suggestions and discussions towards that end.

www.mygov.in.

"Suggestions are invited on 33 themes identified for discussions. Consultations will start soon from villages, block and districts to state and national level," said advertisements appearing in the dailies. "The objective is to formulate a new education policy for the country through an inclusive, participatory and holistic approach."The government would like to bring out a National Education Policy to meet the changing dynamics of the population's requirement with regards to quality education, innovation and research," said a note on the website.

The aim of the initiative is to make India a knowledge superpower by equipping its students with the necessary skills and knowledge and to eliminate the shortage of manpower in science, technology, academics and industry, it added. People giving suggestions on the website would have to join a group. The group consists of tasks and discussions. Tasks are both online and on-the-ground.

HRD minister Smriti Irani had earlier said that the consultation process would be exhaustive in nature and, unlike previous years when only a few officials were involved, all stakeholders, starting from children and parents from the village to the block level, would be involved in the exercise. The process could take as long as a year.
