New Education Policy 2020 | The Controversial & Good Fact

New Education Policy 2020 | the Controversial & Good Fact: The government is trying to muzzle a lot of people regarding that bill and it has surprised a lot of people But the story flipped over to some extent when the people gave positive commentary on the New Education Policy approved by the government- giving us a new education policy after 3 decades! This policy does have a lot of the required changes We will talk about what the changes are and what are the good points in this policy as well But there are some negative points as well, that we will talk about on this episode of the Deshbhakt Do not do incomplete work like the politicians. Press the bell icon along with them to subscribe button There are a lot of good points in the New Education policy that we will talk about but let us begin with the most controversial issue that a lot of people are tweeting about and it has left them confused And that is- what will be the medium of education in our schools under the New Education policy?. Read the complete detail about New Education Policy 2020 and its real fact.

 

It is causing a lot of parents as well as schools to worry An interesting story in this is that the RSS affiliates that were giving their inputs in the New Education policy, and were in talks with the government, had demanded that Hindi should be taught compulsorily from class 6 onward in all the schools irrespective of whether it is a Hindi speaking State or a non-Hindi speaking one When the Southern states objected to the imposition of Hindi on them, then a middle ground was adopted in this New Education policy where it was said that the medium of education in all schools will not be Hindi but it shall be the local language or the mother tongue So, this means that if this policy is changed into rules, then English as a medium of teaching will go out of schools There will be no teaching in English.

 

The Medium of Education (English/Hindi/Mothertounge ) 

There are a lot of debates regarding it- A lot of pedagogical studies say that English is actually not a good thing But on the other hand, all the different type of people in the country had a common base of the English language Say, a southern Indian is working in North India or say a Tamilian is married to a Bengali and he is residing in Delhi, then what would be the mother tongue (of their child) and what would be the medium of instruction in schools? Another issue with this is that- our core strength due to which we are known as coders and software programmers all over the world It’s because we have a familiarity with the language English will still be taught,

 

But the language will be taken away as a medium of teaching and it will change So this is a controversial point- What are you going to do in cities like Delhi with a cosmopolitan population? Will this be an imposition on the schools or the schools will be able to choose their medium is yet to be seen because the policy also reads “wherever possible.

The medium of teaching will be a mother tongue or the local, regional language” So, it remains to be seen Another allegation made against the New Education policy is that it is promoting a centralization of our education system that attempts are being made to centralize it in such a vast nation There was a time when the founding fathers had kept education as a state subject It was put in the concurrent list in 1976 Now, a lot of people are saying that NEP is trying to make education a central subject because all the other education bodies are being removed and a Higher education body is being attempted to be made in which the centre will decide what is to be done in the field of education in the entire country,

Think about it- if there is a higher education institution which has a problem and raises a question then a higher education body, which is under the government, can clamp down on that institution As an example if we look at a country like Canada, which also has federalism.

New Education policy Loopholes 

There is no Central Education ministry there All the educational institutions are run by the states, that is, the federal structure there So, this is believed to be a blow for our federal structure where one single body will control the education of the entire country and decide on what is right and wrong Another allegation clubbed with this is that NEP is a drive towards privatization “Philanthropic trusts” would be at work But what will the government actually do? Even today, there are schools and pathshalas and the government institutions which do not even have toilets for the girls let alone the courses.

What will be done to strengthen that? You are talking about creating school districts in place of schools how will the children come from far away places and study in an accumulated area? These questions are also being raised on the New Education policy Finally, point number 3- How will all of this be implemented? It is good to discuss There were talks about assigning 6% of the GDP to education in 1984 Every government that has come to power since then keeps on harping about this “false promise:” of giving 6% of the GDP to education- but nothing of that sort has happened We stay stuck at 3% – maximum How will this jump from 3% to 6% be made when the government does not have enough resources That remain to be seen More interestingly, the research in higher educations our statistics there have been deteriorating day by day (it is something that).
