Deputy CM Ashwath Narayan has termed the new National Education Policy a ‘revolution’ in the field of education.
“The inclusive and forward-looking stance of this policy, drafted by a committee led by Shri Kasturirangan, is already drawing praise from all quarters of society. This policy is based on the foundational pillars of access, affordability, equity, quality, and accountability,” the DCM said in a press note.
“The regulatory reforms which have been incorporated in this policy will give a fillip to quality education at both the primary and higher education levels. These are important reforms which are necessary to build an Atmanirbhar Bharat and make India a knowledge superpower,” he said.
“When the draft policy of NEP was released by the Central government, the Department of Higher Education in Karnataka constituted a task force under the chairmanship of SV Ranganath, former Chief Secretary, to look into its implementation in the state,” the DCM said.
