Implement NEP by 2022: PM

Along with learning, we also have to unlearn a lot. By 2022, every student will be evolved into the new education policy. I urge all teachers, NGOs, organisations, students, and parents to join the national mission. With your support the nation will implement the NEP successfully, said Modi

Students should be taught in mother tongue till class 5: PM

Language is just a mode of study and not a study in itself. We need to see that most of the energy of students should not be spent on learning the language rather than the subject. A child should understand what they are taught. In a lot of countries, elementary education is imparted in their mother tongue. It is a known fact that students learn better in the language they speak at home. In rural areas, parents are not associated with a child's learning because of the mode of teaching at school. At least till class 5, students should be taught in the mother tongue. Along with the mother tongue, students will be taught international languages including English but Indian languages will also be promoted, said PM.

NEP will take India learning from marks-based to learning-based education: PM

One of the major reasons behind the drop-out ratio is that students do not have the freedom of choosing their own subject but NEP will give the same. Now, students will not have to be limited to the watertight boundaries of commerce, science, and humanities and will chose any subjects they want to choose. It will bring the focus of marks and mark sheet based education back to learning based education, says Modi.

Schools will adapt to new curriculum framework by 2022: PM

NEP will reduce the syllabus and make learning a fun-based and complete experience. we have developed a new curriculum framework. By 2022, our students will join the new curriculum and step towards the new curriculum. It will be a future-ready and scientific curriculum. The future will have new skills including critical thinking, creativity, communication, and curiosity.

Students should learn to ask questions, should be senstised: PM

When a student will start a question, his or her curiosity will be built and they will start learning on their own. If a student will look at the practical aspect of their knowledge, they will learn better. A large section of students is kept away from the practical aspect of education. Many vocational trainings are often looked down upon. We need to sensitise our students, said PM.
