Union Cabinet on Wednesday gave a nod to India’s new National Education Policy 2020, which provides for major reforms in higher education, increased focus on non-academic skills and increased inclusion through language diversity and course fluidity.
The Cabinet has also approved a proposal to rename the Ministry of Human Resource Development as the Ministry of Education. The NEP 2020, which proposes several structural changes in the early as well as the higher education system, has been developed after consultations for nearly five years with stakeholders and the general public. And these reforms have sparked a nationwide debate.
So watch as we raise the big questions on the show. Here are some the questions: Mother tongue or English as medium of instruction?
Board exams revamped or unchanged?
Will undergraduate courses be transformed?
