After the coming of National Education Policy-2020, now the emphasis is on its implementation. Under this, Prime Minister Narendra Modi (PM Narendra Modi) gave a virtual address to teachers across the country on the subject of school education in the 21st century. During this time, the PM said that the new national education policy is a means of fulfilling new needs, new expectations and new needs. The hard work of the last 4-5 years is behind this. He said that the marksheet has become a 'pressure sheet' for students and a 'prestige sheet' for families. The goal of the National Education Policy is to remove this pressure. 'Shiksha Parva' is being organized to implement the National Education Policy and to reach it to all the responsible people. This festival will run from 8 to 25 September.

Highlights of PM Modi's address on '21st Century Schooling'

- When 20 years of independence are to be completed in 2022, then every student of India should study in the guidelines set by the National Education Policy. It is the collective responsibility of all of us. I call upon all teachers, administrators, voluntary organizations and parents to give their support in this mission: PM Modi

- The pioneers of this journey of National Education Policy are teachers of the country. Whether learning in a new way, the teacher has to go on taking the student on this new journey. No matter how advanced the plane is, it is the pilot that flies. So all teachers have to learn something new and forget something old: PM Modi

- The main objective of the National Education Policy is to get our children out of this stress of studying. The examination should be such that it does not put undue pressure on the students. Efforts should be made not to evaluate students by just one examination: PM Modi

- Children are learning even when they play, when they are talking in the family, when they go out with you. But often parents do not ask the children what they have learned. They also ask how much Marx came. Everything comes here and gets stuck: PM Modi

In the National Education Policy, students are given freedom to choose any subject. This is one of the biggest improvements. Now our youth does not have to fit in any one of the breakouts of science, arts or commerce. The talent of the students of the country will now get full opportunity: PM Modi

- The education policy that we have had earlier, had tied the students very much. The student who takes science could not study arts or comers. For the arts and comers, it is assumed that they are studying history geography and accounts because they cannot read science: PM Modi

- There are many professions which require deep skills, but we do not give importance to them. If students see these, then there will be a kind of emotional connection, respect them. It may be that many of these children grow up to join such industries: PM Modi

- We have to increase easy and innovative methods in education. Engage, Explore, Experience, Express and Excel should be the core of our experiment: PM Modi

- A few days ago the Ministry of Education sought suggestions from teachers across the country about implementing the National Education Policy. More than 1.5 million suggestions have been received within a week. These suggestions will help in implementing the National Education Policy more effectively: PM Modi

- The new National Education Policy is also a means of meeting new India, new expectations, new needs. The hard work of the last 4-5 years is behind this, people of every field, every genre, every language have worked on it day and night. But this work has not been completed yet: PM Modi

- After the announcement of National Education Policy, many people are getting many questions. What is this education policy? How is it different? What will change in schools and colleges? We have all gathered in this program so that we can discuss and make way forward: PM Modi

- I am glad that our Principal and teachers are participating enthusiastically in this campaign to implement the National Education Policy. A few days ago, the Ministry of Education sought suggestions from teachers across the country. More than 1.5 million suggestions received within a week: PM Modi

In the last three decades, every region of the world has changed, every system has changed. There is hardly any aspect of our life in these 3 decades which is the same as before. But the path on which society moves towards the future, our education system, it was still running on the old pattern: PM Modi

Today, we are all becoming part of a moment, which is laying the foundation for building the future of our country, in which the seeds of new era are planted. New education policy is going to give new direction to 21st century India: PM

Modi has already addressed the conference of governors and state education ministers on the national education policy on September 7. In this, he gave a complete roadmap of the implementation of education policy. Also said that a more flexible approach should be adopted to implement it. Modi has already spoken about the implementation of the National Education Policy on several occasions earlier. However, in the events so far, it is also different because they include the grassroots team implementing the policy.

PM addressed the virtual conference of governors

Earlier on September 7, PM Modi addressed a virtual conference of governors and state education ministers held on the role of the National Education Policy-2020. During this, he said that like foreign policy, defense policy, education policy also belongs to the country and not of any government. Just as the policy has been brought with the vision of flexibility, in the same way everyone will have to show maximum flexibility regarding its implementation. It also said that this policy is not only for changes in the methods of education. It is going to give a new direction to the social and economic life of 21st century India.
