Addressing a conclave on ‘Transformational Reforms in Higher Education under National Education Policy’, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday said the new National Education Policy (NEP) will be the foundation of the new India. At the conclave aimed to discuss several new initiatives introduced under the recently launched NEP.
NEP, India will transform its students into global citizens who are rooted in their values. “In recent years, there have not been major changes in education and thus the values of curiosity and imagination were not given the thrust. Instead, we moved towards a herd community.
At the conclave, Union education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank launched UGC’s guidelines to offer internship-embedded degree programmes. These courses are also part of the recommendations of NEP. The new policy proposed sweeping changes in school and higher education.
