Decoding Nep 2020
- Guiding Principles of NEP 2020
- Pre-Primary to High School Curriculum
- Teacher Appraisal, School Audit and Assessments
Recognising the ‘Power of Teacher’ NEP 2020 has put in place systemic reforms that would help ‘teaching’ emerge as an striking profession of choice for optimistic and talented young minds. It proposes several reforms to empower teachers and ‘restore the high respect and status’ to this profession hoping that it would eventually attract the best minds and talent to choose teaching as their profession.
The NEP 2020 talks of creating performance standards for teachers clearly spelling out the role of the teacher at different levels of expertise/stage and competencies required for that stage.
For the first time, students are kept as the ‘focal point’ of the entire policy. The policy reflects the 5 ‘I’s – Indian, Internationalism, Impactful, Interactive and Inclusive – while beholding itself on the principles of equity, quality and access. Through the policy we will bring transformational changes for students making them adapt to the skills of the 21st century at both school and higher education levels.
The National Education Policy 2020 is also cognizant of the digital divide and at the same time recognizes the importance of leveraging the advantages of technology while acknowledging its potential risks and dangers.
