Former ISRO Chairman Dr. K. Kasturirangan said on Wednesday that with the new education policy, the coming generation will not only get quality education but will also get employment. Because it emphasizes vocational education and skill development right from the initial classes of the school. The team of experts led by Dr. Kasturirangan was heading the committee formed to finalize the new education policy. Talking to Hindustan after approving the new education policy, he said that the ultimate aim of education is ultimately to achieve employment. But employment is not gained only by certificates or degrees. Therefore, an attempt has been made to provide employment education to students from class six.
They say that the second feature of this policy is that it focuses on ensuring the quality of primary to higher education. For this, the nature of existing schooling has been changed. The responsibility of teachers and parents has also been ensured. The focus is on the grading of institutions in higher education. Under the Education Commission to be made for the regulation of higher education, there will be four parts in which one will make rules, the other will ensure the grading of institutions. The third will prepare a regulatory framework for each sector and the fourth will work on awarding grants. This system will produce better results than existing regulators.
They say that a major improvement will be brought through changes in board examinations. Today, board exams are dominated by coaching. In the race to get more numbers, the focus of the students has become rote. The qualifications and abilities of all the students are not being properly assessed by the board examinations. Hence the need to change their appearance has been felt. Board exams may also occur more than once a year. Options such as organizing them online also need to be worked out. So that the board exams do not cause stress and the results are enjoyable for the students.
