Kurukshetra, (Samajweekly) – “To avoid unhealthy competition with the foreign universities permitted under New Education Policy 2020 , we need to accept the challenge even if weak but unique with spiritual wisdom flowing from Gita and Anu-Gita,” said, Professor M.M. Goel, former Vice Chancellor and Needonomist living in Kurukshetra.
He was addressing webinar organised by Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Technology Mumbai today (Sep.19) on the topic ‘ Awareness of New Education Policy 2020’.
For effective implementation of NEP 2020, the three tier government should not poke its nose at every level of education. The central government must take the responsibility of providing secondary education to the entire nation free of cost as a public good. The primary education is required to be looked after by the local governments with freedom to generate resources including proper pricing policy of birth, marriage and death certificates. The domain of higher education including professional and technical education can be left to the states with PPP model which will bring efficiency, sufficiency and equity, believes Professor Goel.
To improve quality, the teachers have to be street smart (simple, moral, action oriented, responsive and transparent) at all levels of operation, told Goel.
Earlier Professor Kiran Chaudhari UBA Coordinator welcomed and presented citation on the achievements of Prof. M.M .Goel.
