Prime Minister Narendra Modi stressed the need to have a new curriculum in schools by 2022, which is in sync with the new National Education Policy (NEP).
Addressing the School Education Conclave organised by the Ministry of Education on September 12, 2020, he said, “The new curriculum framework will be developed and be ready by 2022 when the nation celebrates its 75th year of Independence”.
He expressed that the marksheet has become a “pressure sheet” for students and “prestige sheet” for families. The new policy aims to remove this pressure.
The NEP will reduce the syllabus and make learning a fun-based and complete experience, the Prime Minister added.
The new curriculum will be future-ready and scientific. It will have new skills to promote critical thinking, creativity, communication and curiosity.
The Ministry of Education has received over 15 lakh suggestions from teachers on the implementation of NEP within a week through the MyGov portal.
Supporting teaching up to class V in mother tongue, the Prime Minister said that the language is just a mode of study and not a study in itself.
