NEP To Concentrate On Four Key Sectors
Khandu stated that once schools return after an extended period of closure due to the epidemic, instructors would have more work to perform with their kids.
Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu on Sunday said that under the New Education Policy (NEP), the government will focus on four thrust areas to shape the future scope and dynamics of education scenarios in the state. Speaking at a function to celebrate Teachers' Day, Khandu said that the thrust areas include:
- Foundational Literacy and Numeracy,
- Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE),
- e-Governance and Digital Education
- Vocational and Teachers’ Education.
Khandu said that reforms in the education sector may hurt a few and appealed to the teachers to face it for the larger interest of the students, who are the future of the state. He, though, assured that extremely genuine cases will be considered by the government whenever it arises. As schools are reopening after a long time due to the pandemic, he said the teachers have more work to do with their students.
Forty teachers from across the state were conferred with the ''State Teachers Award 2021'' for their service to the state on the occasion of Teachers'' Day. Third-Language textbooks for eight tribes of Arunachal, published by the State Council of Education Research and Training (SCERT), were also released on the occasion. These will be introduced at the upper primary level from the next academic session.
