Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi addressed a webinar on implementation of Budget in education sector. He said, ‘To build Aatmanirbhar Bharat, the youth of the country need self-confidence which is directly connected to their education, knowledge and skill. The new National Education Policy has been developed with this key thought.’

The key announcements in the Union Budget related to Education Sector are as follows and we seek ideas and suggestions from the public and other stakeholders on the same:

• More than 15,000 schools will be qualitatively strengthened to include all components of the National Education Policy. They shall emerge as exemplar schools in their regions, handholding and mentoring other schools to achieve the ideals of the Policy.

• Standards will be developed for all school teachers in the form of National Professional Standards for Teachers – NPST. This will enhance the capabilities of teachers and will be followed by 92 lakh teachers of public and private school system in the country.

• Toys are both an expression of entertainment and learning. A unique indigenous toy-based learning – pedagogy for all levels of school education will be developed. This will transform classroom transactions from mundane and rote learning to an engaging and joyful experience.

• A National Digital Educational Architecture (NDEAR) will be set up within the context of a Digital First Mindset where the Digital Architecture will not only support teaching and learning activities but also educational planning, governance administrative activities of the Centre and the States/ Union Territories. It will provide a diverse education eco-system architecture for development of digital infrastructure, a federated but interoperable system that will ensure autonomy of all stakeholders, specially States and UTs.

• For children with hearing impairments, the Government will work on standardization of Indian Sign language across the country, and develop National and State Curriculum materials and digital contents for use by them.

• There are a number of senior and retired teachers. They will be used for individual mentoring of school teachers and educators through constant online/offline support on subjects, themes and pedagogy.

• Students have so far been evaluated on uni-dimensional parameters. There will be a complete shift from using assessments to not only judge the cognitive levels of the learner but also using it as an opportunity to identify the unique strengths and the potential of the child. To this effect, a holistic progress card is envisaged to provide students with valuable information on their strengths, areas of interest, needed areas of focus and thereby helping them in making optimal career choices.

• To enable increased access of resources, online modules covering the entire gamut of adult education will be introduced.

• During the year, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, we have trainedmore than 30 lakh elementary school teachers digitally, covering the whole gamut of education. Taking this further, in 2021-22, we will enable the training of 56 lakh school teachers through the National Initiative for School Heads and Teachers for Holistic Advancement (NISTHA).

• For the past few years our Prime Minister has been engaging with students every year before their Board Exams to help them overcome anxiety and stress. In this direction, we will introduce CBSE Board Exam reforms in a phased manner to be effective from the 2022-23 academic session. Exams will move away from rote-learning and students shall be tested on their conceptual clarity, analytical skills and application of knowledge to real life situations.

Educational programmes for degree have Student Projects of 6-12 months. Problems addressed should be taken from a user (eg. Farmer). An industrialist, often the user, will fund Rs 5000 per month to the student. Papers and patents on the innovative solution by the project will be of students and teachers. But the solution will be given to the industrialist who funded the project. So problems faced in the world are addressed; solutions are found; startups provide the solutions to the users. v

शिक्षा और स्वास्थ्य सुविधा उपलब्ध कराना सरकार की जिम्मेदारी है, सुधार मुमकिन है प्राथमिक शिक्षण और उपचार सरकार हर किसी को सरकारी अस्पताल और सरकारी स्कूल्स मे अनिवार्य कर दे, स्तर में अपने आप सुधार होगा। आम जनता और सरपंच से लेकर नगरसेवक, विधायक, सांसद, मंत्री और ग्रामसेवक से लेकर तहसीलदार, गटविकास अधिकारी, एसडीएम, जिलाधिकारी सभी अगर सरकारी अस्पतालों मे उपचार करे तो सुधार होना ही है। सरकार से संबन्धित सभी को स्वास्थ एवं शिक्षा भत्ते ना दे और इस फंड का उपयोग शिक्षा और स्वास्थ्य के सुधार मे लगाए।

Well-designed PPPs can create models of innovation for the school system in India. Thus the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model must be taken into consideration.

The world now needs creative minds and the Government must encourage schools to boost the students and utilise their capacities to the max and not let their ideas go unheard.

अगर आप सोचते है कि आपका बच्चा और ग्रामसेवक, तहसीलदार, गटविकास अधिकारी, जिलाधिकारी या फिर सरपंच, नगरसेवक, विधायक या सांसद का बच्चा एक ही स्कूल मे शिक्षा प्राप्त करे तो आपको गर्व होगा, मगर इस प्रकार यह लोग भी ऐसे ही सोचे तो, प्रधानमंत्री जी का स्लोगन "सब का साथ सब का विकास" बात सच हो सकती है। लेकिन सोच विपरित हो तो देश मे शिक्षा, स्वास्थ्य मे सुधार नामुमकिन है। इसलिए सोच की नही ऐसा करने की जिम्मेदारी प्रधानमंत्री को लेनी होगी तो शिक्षा और स्वास्थ्य के क्षेत्र मे सुधार ज़रूर होगा।

Respectable Prime Minister of India,

Most humbly and respectfully I beg to say if a student wants to post graduate with his/her subsidiary subject, student should have right to study subsidiary subject with any university, student should not compel to do PG with honour subject. reserve seats should be allowed for those students and there should be an entrance test before taking the admission in PG, due to there should be no partiality betwixt honours students and suubsidiary students

case studies and case based problem solving should be introduced in exams which can be even open book or online. We need to teach students about role models like swami vivekanadas teaching, so our youth gain confidence, arise ,awake and not stop till india is made great again, they should develop the courage to questions wrongs and to set rights things,which might have been happening for the past several years ,india need to pole vault, there needs radical change in justice delivery system
