NEP 2020 leans towards learning and away from the present bias towards rote
Last week, the Union government unveiled the long-awaited National Education Policy (NEP), only the third such effort since India gained independence. It is by all counts a remarkable document that sets out a very bold and radical vision to reset the education landscape in the country. Almost no one can quarrel (except for the constant critics) with the objectives and milestones of change set out in the document. One can only wish that this had happened when we were students.
