Objective of the FDP
National Education Policy 2020 is all set to revolutionize the academic sector of the country. NEP 2020 emphasizes on the pursuit of knowledge (Jnan), wisdom (Pragyaa), and truth (Satya). Successful implementation of the policy will rely on bold and decisive academic reforms. This FDP will enlighten the academic fraternity about the various facets of NEP-2020 and the opportunity and associated challenges. Eminent Speakers from the field of Academia will be sharing their expertise on the thematic areas of the program.
The new education policy must provide to all students, irrespective of their place of residence, a quality education system, with particular focus on historically marginalized, disadvantaged, and under-re-presented groups. Education is a great leveler and is the best tool for achieving economic and social mobility, inclusion, and equality. Initiatives must be in place to ensure that all students from such groups, despite inherent obstacles, are provided various targeted opportunities to enter and excel in the educational system.
These elements must be incorporated taking into account the local and global needs of the country, and with a respect for and deference to its rich diversity and culture. Instilling knowledge of India and its varied social, cultural, and technological needs, its inimitable artistic, language, and knowledge traditions, and its strong ethics in India’s young people is considered critical for purposes of national pride, self-confidence, self-knowledge, cooperation, and integration.
