NEP 2020: Manish Sisodia opposes multidisciplinary approach for renowned institutes

Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi and Education Minister, Manish Sisodia opposed some sections of New Education Policy 2020.

The Minister also questioned multidisciplinary scheme in the institutions like Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) and Indian Institutes of Management (IIM).

"New Education Policy envisages all colleges and universities to be multidisciplinary.

Let IIT deal with engineering, IIM with management, AIIMS with medical and FTII with acting.

Dilution of such big institutes will not be good for talent of country," said Sisodia to ANI.

Manish Sisodia also said that the New Education Policy is just a wishful thinking not action driven.

‘New Education Policy gives highly-regulated, poorly-funded model’: Sisodia

Politics over the New Education Policy continues as Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia said the policy had two problems. Welcoming some of the reforms, Sisodia also pointed out changes, he thought were a problem. The new National Education Policy (NEP) recommends a "highly-regulated" and "poorly-funded" education model, while it is either confused or silent on how the reforms outlined in it will be achieved, Sisodia said. Referring to the policy as a "progressive document", the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader said it recognises the flaws in the current education system but was unable to break free of the pressures of old traditions. "The NEP is a progressive document but there is no roadmap for its implementation. Congress leader Shashi Tharoor also raised a question of why the policy was not discussed in Parliament. Tharoor said BJP has chosen unrealistic targets in the education sector through NEP.

New Education Policy 2020: All the key takeaways

The Modi government announced the New Education Policy 2020 which brings about several major reforms in education in India. PM Modi said that this reform would transform the lives of millions of Indians. Among the major reforms, the 10+2 structure in the schooling system has been replaced by a 5+3+3+4 structure.  It will include 12 years of schooling and three years of Anganwadi and pre-schooling. Additionally, instead of exams being held every year, school students will sit for exams only in Classes 3, 5 and 8. The mother tongue or local or regional language is to be the medium of instruction in all schools up to Class 5. The policy however states that no language shall be imposed on any student. The policy also proposes that higher education institutions like the IITs move towards a more 'holistic education' by 2040. Additionally, the four-year undergraduate programme has made a comeback but colleges have been given an option to opt for it. Watch this video to find out all the key highlights of the new education policy.
