Report; Bureau, Odishabarta

Bhubaneswar,17/06/19:17th June- The Draft New Education Policy 2019 includes some long-awaited shift in the education sector many of which were long-standing demands of the civil society and are highly welcome. However, there are some inclusions which needs to be reconsidered before it is finalized, told civil society leaders while discussing in a consultative workshop on Draft National Education Policy 2019, herein Bhubaneswar.

Sustainability Foundation, a state level non-profit organized this workshop in collaboration with National Coalition for Education to come out with key points of recommendations on the policy as the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India is seeking inputs and suggestions on the Draft National Education Policy (NEP) 2019 from citizens by June 30.

“We welcome the policy as it talks about inclusion of both early childhood education and secondary education under RTE, doubling the budgetary allocation for education, strengthening decentralized mechanisms of teacher management and support and a possible come back of the no-detention policy which was scrapped by the BJP led NDA Government.

However, our demand on Common School System is long standing and justified. The Education Commission of India in its report in 1964-66 recommended the establishment of a Common School System for all children irrespective of their class, caste, religious or linguistic background. However, this has no place in the policy. Secondly, the policy specifically promotes private schools in the name of quality education whereas there is no evidence to prove that private schools deliver quality education. We hope that our feedbacks are taken into consideration for the better future of children ofour country,"said Mr Naba Kisore Pujari Chairman of Sustainability Foundation Policy exports on education from International NGOs and Odisha RTE Forum and members of grassroots level NGOs from 15 districts participated in the workshop and placed various loopholes of the policy based on the education rights of the children.

Dr Subhashree Das, Trustee Sustainability Foundation, Dr Prashant Kumar Acharya, Dr Smarita Pradhan, Secretary of Sikshasandhan Mr Anil Pradhan, Mr Santosh Kumar Patra, Educationist and Co-convener of Odisha RTE Forum Mr. Smruti Ranjan Jena, Principal of BJEM School Ms. Kshanika Das and many other prominent leaders from the Civil society attended the workshop.
