The J & K administration is not only trying to broaden the base of higher education but they are even trying to start a pre-school preparation programme.
Under the policy, the School Education Department has been asked to immediately roll out Vidya Pravesh, a preschool preparation programme for Class 1 students. The programme consisted of a three month play module and the Indian Sign language as a subject at secondary level.
The policy seeks to restructure school curricula and pedagogy in a new ‘5+3+3+4’ design, so that school education can be made relevant to the needs and interests of learners at different developmental stages including ‘Foundational Stage’ (five years), ‘Preparatory Stage’ (three years), ‘Middle Stage’ (three years) and ‘High Stage’ (four years, covering grades nine, 10, 11 and 12).
An online process was started for suggestions and comments from people, which became the basis for major decisions in implementation of National Education Policy (NEP-2020).
Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha, also interacted with the Education Reforms Committees constituted at UT, divisional and district level and invited their valuable suggestions for working on the educational reforms in J&K and proper implementation of NEP-2020.
The New Education Policy has paved the way for innovative activities, modern labs, placements and many such features for bringing a landmark change in the education system.
