Strategies for Educational Reforms


Education is the heart and sieve of the complexities of social and political life in the larger national firmament. India inherited a colonial Educational system from the outgoing Brits and most of it had continued in the same manner till the contemporary times. Right from the rudimental of primary and pre-school education, we ought to delve inside the fundamental traits of Higher Educational Institutions which leave a lot to be desired. The colonial and hegemonic approach of the British rule is very much part of the Indian Educational system which has changed over the years as being more generic and participative in nature. Teacher training and exposure to new teaching and learning including the utilization of technology are the wants of the educational system in the nation’s educational firmament.

The New Educational policy is an intelligent continuation of the NEP 1986, 1992 and the Educational Amendment act of 2009. The ideals of praxis, namely, the tenets of inclusion, universality, emphasis on Ethics of education and quality are the fundamental tenets upon which the entire edifice of the National Educational Policy rests. There needs to be a balance in the quality and the quantity of Education which is the need of the hour in the present day Atmanirbhar context of the nation under the New Delhi denomination. 

The drive to inculcate World Class Institutions along with teacher–student accountability, are, the other pegs upon which the larger context of educational reforms are premised upon. There is a focus on early childhood education within the premise of equity and inclusion which has been a striving of the educationalists, academia and practioners involved in the exposition and promulgation of the New-Educational Policy of the nation. An entire section is devoted to the Socio-economically disadvantaged groups as SEDG’s as the main heart of the New Educational Policy along with the stress on the Outcomes reported. Though gender sensitivity is mentioned in the Document but the facets of systemic change are not included in the Document which can be perfected by Government trainers in the sphere of Educational reforms in the nation.
