GOA: Academicians across Goa continue to largely praise the Centre’s National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, stating that it has all the necessary provisions to transform the education sector in India from the pre-primary school to the higher education level. Educationists state that the promised 6% of the GDP spending is all that is required now to make its provisions a reality.
Director of Goa Institute of Management (GIM) Ajit Parulekar called the policy “excellent, bold and transformational in many ways”. He said the interventions recommended by NEP at both the school and the higher education levels will bring about “more balance” in the education structure.
“Personally I have always been an advocate of a liberal-arts approach to education. A multidisciplinary stream will allow a student to be able to learn say, physics and music together. Which is wonderful. As individuals we are multifaceted with many layers to our personality. For an individual to be able to immerse themselves in diverse subjects allows one to have a more wholesome personality,” Parulekar said.
