Higher Education for Excellence –An analysis of NEP 2020 & National Education Policies
Education, higher education and NEP
A nation can promote development and equitable and just society by achieving full human potential through education. To become a developed society, India, not only requires a vibrant economy driven by knowledge but also a new society where justice and human values prevail. Our nation builders understood the role of education as the key catalyst for promoting socio-economic mobility in building equitable and just society. After the independence, education was largely controlled by the central government but slowly became a joint effort by the central and the state governments through a constitutional amendment in 1976. Education commissions and the National Policy on Education 1986, was modified in 1992 (NPE 1986/92), a major development since the last Policy of 1986/92, has been the Right of children to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009 which laid down legal framework for achieving universal elementary education for children till 14 years of age. In spite of a rich past, India as a country is still afflicted by high percentage of illiteracy and high rate of dropouts. The previous policies on education have focused largely on issues of access and equity. In this paper an attempt has been made to enquire whether the unfinished agenda, especially of higher education, is appropriately dealt with in this National Education Policy 2020? and suggest those areas to make it more inclusive Education Policy.
