As per the recommendations made in NEP 2020, a set of standards has been developed to ensure that all students at all levels of school education are taught by passionate, motivated, highly qualified, professionally trained, and well-equipped teachers. National Professional Standard for Teachers(NPST) would help in determining the attributes of the teachers at different levels of career pathways. In addition to this, NPST focuses on preparations, practice and performance improvement of all teachers. The standards and related policies are in line with the fundamental principles given in the NEP 2020 to provide high quality education to all. NCTE was mandated by the Ministry to formulate a guiding document and platform for operationalizing NPST.

National Professional Standard for Teachers (NPST) will monitor the design of pre-service teacher education program. This could be then adopted by states and determine all aspects of teacher career management, including tenure, professional development efforts, salary increases, promotions, and other recognitions.

In this regard, a draft document on NPST has been developed by NCTE after incorporating ideas and suggestions received from experts of various domains. The draft document has been released on November 17, 2021 to invite the suggestions and feedback from all stakeholders.

Our behaviour is reflection of our surroundings. It is not just what we learn in schools or colleges. If there is corruption in country, is it due to education system? Which school or college teach about corrupt practices? But, when students see teachers expecting gifts from students on special occasions, what goes in their minds? When school management asks for buying unnecessary stationary items or costly uniforms from school designated stores, what effect it makes on students particularly not so rich students whose parents manage with difficulty to meet the ever increasing cost of education? What is the effect on students of teachers pressurising for private tuitions and awarding good marks to students taking tuitions from them?
We allow corruption to start from schools. Seeds of corruption are laid in our education system. Corruption is now our national character.
Education system shall have to not just to manage shools and results. It shall have the responsibility to educate.

Environment education system is must be implemented mandatory for all students. At the very outset ,I would like to express about wangari maathai .According to her many wars are fought over the natural resources some wars are forsurvival and some are to gain control over the resources . These keep us away from the resources. Good management of resources and equitable distribution of them is important for peace This is possible only when you have democratic space n respect for the environment

Reforms in education system can not be visualised in few years. It takes decades to get the returns. It may take at least a generation gap to see the effects of educational reform because education reform is supposed to change the character of nation that too by changing the character of citizens person by person.
With NEP, the emphasis would be to restore the lost morale and eroded moral values of younger generations through education system.
Teachers are going to play a definitive role. There is a saying 'old habits die hard'. So one question remains that teachers who have been part of earlier systems would actually change themselves and inculcate moral values and discipline in students? Training the teachers for NEP would only impart the knowledge about changes in system but how would teachers get to know the changes about intentions of NEP.
Therefore, unless there is generational shift in teachers, effect of change due to NEP would take time to get delayed further.

when the students spend all that time in reading writing and horrible examinations there is no scope for them to learn any fine arts.Now they don't find I am to play games at least. Now their education makes them weak physically.Do you know..." a sound mind in a sound body" , but the present education system make the students shun any sort of physical activity.
These are the adverse effects of education in in corporate system try to to remove this type of actions and make them children happy.

अगर सरकारी व्यवस्था को संबंधित अधिकारी सही बना सकते हैं तो निश्चित रूप से उनको हटा कर उनको ट्रांसफर स्थानांतरण कर दिया जाए और इसका निजीकरण करने में ही भलाई है क्योंकि जितनी जल्दी प्राइवेटाइजेशन होगा उतनी व्यवस्थित सिस्टम अच्छी होगी और आपका लाखों करोड़ों अरबों रुपए जो व्यस्त बर्बाद हो जाता नष्ट हो जाता वह बच जाएगा ऊर्जा शक्ति धन का सदुपयोग संचय संरक्षण सुनिश्चित करवाने के लिए उपाय अधिकारियों कर्मचारियों से आमंत्रित किया जाए और मीटिंग कर के इंप्लीमेंटेशन अति शीघ्र करवाया जाए तो अच्छा होगा धन्यवाद

वरिष्ठ अधिकारी सब कुछ जानते हैं कि किस तरह से अच्छा किया जा सकता है सिस्टम पारदर्शी बनाया जा सकता है किस प्रकार से ईमानदारी लाई जा सकती है लेकिन ऐसा लगता है कि वह बिल्कुल नहीं चाहता कि हमारे आदिवासी बनवासी जनजातियों का पिछड़े वर्ग का एससी एसटी ओबीसी का डेवलपमेंट हो यही वजह है कि उन लोग आज तक बुनियादी सुविधाओं से वंचित है सड़क पानी बिजली जैसी स्वास्थ्य सुविधाएं प्राथमिक चिकित्सा जैसी चीजें भी आज तक गांवों में नहीं पहुंच पाई है कौन जिम्मेदार है इस भ्रष्टाचार इस करप्शन के लिए इस लापरवाही के लिए कौन

The Teacher Foundation, an organisation working for teacher professional development and well-being for the past 19 years, welcomes the NPST. There are, however, some areas for improvement which if ironed out would lead to greater clarity and acceptance of the standards. Please find our recommendations attached as a PDF document. We do hope to see standards that set a clear trajectory for the growth and development of all teaching professionals!
