School students to have new curriculum framework by 2022, says PM Modi
New Delhi (Mahamedia) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday addressed the ‘Conclave on School Education in the 21st century under National Education Policy 2020’. The conclave was organised by the ministry of education as a part of the “Shiksha Parv” which is being observed from September 8-25 to felicitate teachers and take the New Education Policy (NEP) forward.
PM Modi had on August 7 delivered the inaugural address at the “Conclave on Transformational Reforms in Higher Education under NEP-2020.”
The Prime Minister had said then that NEP 2020 will play a major role in reducing the gap between research and education in India.
Till class 5, students should be taught in their mother tongue. It is important that students spend more time on learning the subject rather than a language. Students will also be taught international languages, including English, but Indian languages will also be promoted, said Modi.
