National Education Policy (NEP) stipulates that all colleges and universities are multidisciplinary, but watering down large institutions won’t be good for the country, Delhi minister of education Manish Sisodia said on Friday.
“It stipulates that all colleges and universities are multidisciplinary. Let IIT deal with engineering, IIM with management, AIIMS with medicine and FTII with trading. Watering down such large institutes won’t do the country’s talent any good, ”Sisodia told ANI when asked about the NEP.
He said there are institutions in the country that are already multidisciplinary and some serve a specific sector. This system is “good” and should not be disturbed.
Sisodia also said that there are some progressive things in the new education policy, but how to implement them and what the roadmap for them will be is not stated in politics.
“It also calls for the creation of new institutions such as the national inspection body. The directive says that new regulators will be created that go beyond the regulations,” said Sisodia.
He went on to say, “In the new directive, we’re still sticking to board exams that are out of date in the world today. You should think of something new and look for a continuous assessment. “
“It must be ensured that every child receives the same education, since it is necessary to close the gap between a child’s education in the metropolis and that of a village,” said the minister.
“How to improve state schools, this policy does not place much emphasis on this aspect, but on the promotion of private educational institutions. So that means the government is avoiding its responsibilities, ”he said.
Some steps are welcome, such as opening a path for foreign universities in the country. It is good for students who want to receive international standards training within the country. Another good thing is that basic training is given in the mother tongue, he added.
