Prime Minister Narendra Modi inspected the implementation of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 on Saturday (May 7). According to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), PM Modi suggested that a hybrid online and offline learning system be established to avoid overexposure of school-aged youngsters to technology.
While chairing a high-level meeting on NEP 2022 PM Modi said that in the two years since the launch of the policy, it has undertaken many initiatives to achieve the objectives of access, equity, inclusivity, and quality, as aimed by the policy.
“From special efforts to track out of school children and bring them back into the mainstream, to the introduction of multiple entries and exits in higher education, many transformative reforms have been initiated that will define and lead the progress of the country,” he said as reported by several media outlets.
PM also suggested that secondary schools that have science labs should engage the students with farmers in their area to teach them soil testing.
