National Education Policy is community- and student-centric: Karnataka Minister
The new National Education Policy will make education a ‘community engagement’ and will integrate educational institutions, industry and research organizations on one platform, according to Dr CN Ashwath Narayan, Minister for Higher Education.
Inaugurating a seminar on NEP-2020 organized by Bengaluru Central University in association with Mount Carmel College on Friday, the Minister described the NEP as ‘student-centric’.
The Minister said, “Educational institutions, faculty and universities have to play a crucial role in the implementation of NEP-2020. Many policies will come and go, but what makes a difference is effective implementation.”
