On 29th July 2020 the new education policy (NEP 2020) was introduce to the nation. Which is released after 34 years i.e., last education policy was develop in 1986. The frame work is designed by Ministry of Human Resources (MHRD) and supervised by Prime minister of India.

It is a brave and ambitious policy that aims to drastically alter the educational system. The result of which we will see in the next 10 or 20 years. The policy intends to modernize India’s educational system and bring it up to par with global norms. It also underlines the importance of offering top-notch education to everyone, irrespective of socioeconomic status.

Additionally, the policy aims to develop a more adaptable and flexible educational system that can adapt to the demands of both the economy and students. The New Education Policy includes vocational education. Up until the fifth year of school, it comprises teaching both the mother tongue and regional languages.

Students can learn in all the three languages i.e., in Hindi English and their local language. The new policy is more focusing on core concept and vocational education. New policy will include technology in education system to make easy approachable to every student and effective. It imagines a framework where there’s no qualification between country and urban regions, and all children have got to quality education.

With this policy there is a new reform in education system is introduced. Previously there is a system of 10+2 in our education structure which is now onwards replace with 5+3+3+4 system. Which means the first 5 years is foundation stage of every student in which the first three years (age between 3 to 6) he learns through aganwadi or balvatika i.e., nursery classes. The next two years the student (age between 6 to 8) will go for 1st and 2nd class. So, the first 5 years was count as foundation level in which basic skills were developed in the students.

In the next 3 years (age between 8 to 11) the student will cover class of 3rd to 5th in which he develops basic literacy and numeracy skill. These three years were count as preparatory level.

After class 5th the student will enter next 3 years middle stage in which student will learn academic skills like reading writing problem solving etc. the class, he / she will cover is from 6th to 8th.

The final secondary stage of 4 years was covering the class from 9th to 12th in which student learn about subjects like mathematics, science, English etc. at this stage student will develop understanding regarding future higher studies and other skill for carrier growth.

The major reform in NEP 2020 is now onwards all the regulatory bodies work in education sector are replaced by one regulatory body called as national higher education regulatory authority (NHERA).

aim of NHERA is the arrangement centers on four primary columns – get to, value, quality and responsibility. Beneath the approach, all children between the ages of 3 and 18 will have the proper to free and obligatory instruction.
