Defense staff chief Gen Bipin Rawat noted that the recently announced National Education Policy (NEP) would change the country’s learning process in 2020 and said it would help the armed forces identify rural youth for soldiers.
“The new education policy will change the learning process at all levels … The transformation will help the armed forces identify rural youth who are better suited to a practical and innovative approach to soldiers,” said Gen Rawat.
The country’s highest-ranking military officer praised the human resources development ministry for introducing the new policy, saying: “Activity-based at the primary level of talent generation with a focus on innovative and research-based learning, we will be witnessing our youth developing the right skills to help them To seek employment opportunities. “
He said that college-level multi-entry and exit programs will be a welcome change for our youth. “Teachers have to prepare for this change because they have to lead from the beginning,” said the CDS.
The Union’s cabinet approved NEP 2020 on Wednesday and proposed several changes in school and higher education. The education policy contains guidelines for the development of education in the country.
The most important reforms in school education brought about by NEP 2020 include the universalization of early childhood care education (ECCE), the national mission to focus on basic and arithmetic skills, no rigid separation between art and science flows and the lifting of the separation between work, science and curriculum and out of school.
