As the plight of school education in India is going from bad to worse, the government is taking various steps – at least, ostensibly – to save the education systems in schools.
India’s Minister of State for Human Resource Development (HRD), Upendra Kushwaha, said Thursday that every effort will be made to promote the quality of school education as this forms the very foundation of our education system.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of HRD, Government of India, has released the outlines of the government’s Draft National Education Policy, 2016.
Released in the last week of June 2016 on the government’s website, the 43-page document underlines the challenges in the Indian education system and attempts to provide a framework for the development of education over the coming few years.
Upendra Kushwaha was presiding over the 56th Foundation Day of National Council of Educational Research & Training (NCERT) in the NCERT Campus in New Delhi.
He expressed concern over the fact that during the past decades numerous schools have been opened but these are still to become institutions of learning in true sense.
During the function, the Minister released 5 new publications of NCERT titled Trilingual School Dictionary of Economics, Vanaspati Vithika (in Sanskrit), Guidelines for Science & Mathematics Model Laboratories, Barkha Series: e-books of 40 titles and Takhleequi Jauhar (in Urdu) Part-II for Class XII.
