New education policy hailed

Hisar/Kurukshetra: Guru Jambheshwar University of Science and Technology Vice-Chancellor Prof Tankeshwar Kumar welcomed the National Education Policy approved by the Government of India on Wednesday. Prof Kumar said the new policy was due for quite some time and had come up nicely. The policy will bring drastic changes in the education system from school level to high level of education. He said the new school education system of 5+3+3+4 would make the citizens more responsible towards their life, family, state and the nation. Kurukshetra University VC Dr Nita Khanna also welcomed the new education policy. Calling it a big step on the part of the government, Dr Khanna said the policy aimed to universalise the pre-primary education by 2025. The policy is based upon the foundational pillars of access, affordability, equity, quality, and accountability. Dr Khanna further added that the policy had provisions that provide the students with increased flexibility and choice of subjects to study across various streams of arts, humanities, science, sports, and other vocational subjects. This will increase the employability of the youth of the nation.

Consistency required: Rtd Principal

Karnal: Dr Ramji Lal, Principal (retd), Dyal Singh College, here, said there was uncertainty among students as to whether classes would be held in colleges or not. "Parents are also concerned about the break in the continuity of studies of their children. There is a need to maintain consistency in our education system and ensure that learning does not stop due to the the Covid pandemic and there is no impediment in the students' learning. Students, parents as well as teachers are also facing psychological dilemma due to this. Therefore, online classes in colleges are the need of the hour," he said in a press release. Though the government is aware of various issues but there is lack of action and motivation on the part of the government as no financial assistance is being given to colleges to build the necessary infrastructure to start their classes, he said.
