NEW DELHI :
PRIME Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said the National Education Policy 2020 has been framed keeping in mind the aspirations of the youth of 21st century of our country. While addressing students participating in the Smart India Hackathon 2020, Prime Minister said, “National Education Policy 2020 announced recently has been framed keeping in mind the aspirations of the youth of 21st century of our country.
India’s National Education Policy is about the spirit, which reflects that we are shifting from the burden of the school bag, which does not last beyond school, to the boon of learning which helps for life, from simply memorising to critical thinking.” Prime Minister Modi said the policy emphasises on the interdisciplinary study. “This concept has been gaining popularity.
And, rightly so. One size does not fit all. One subject does not define who you are. This will ensure the focus is on what the student wants to learn, rather than what the student is expected to do by society. Inter-disciplinary studies give you control. In the process, it also makes you flexible,” he said. Prime Minister said the policy will ensure that the languages of India will progress. “The languages of India will progress and develop further due to the changes brought in the education policy. This will not only increase India’s knowledge but will also increase its unity,” he said.
