One education policy for all states not viable, says expert

Thrusting one education system on all college students throughout states, no matter their socio- financial status, is not a viable concept, one of many panelists of a six-member committee, fashioned by the Bengal authorities to review and share views on the brand new education policy, said.

The committee member, who did not want to be named, additionally said {that a} “voluminous report” has been ready, after fastidiously contemplating all elements of the policy, and it will likely be submitted to the state authorities in a few days.

“We have almost readied the report, which will be submitted to the government in a couple of days. I am of the view that in a country of 130 crore population, you cannot thrust a uniform education policy on all states, regardless of their needs and economic status. What can be applicable in Manipur may not make sense in Bengal,” he said.

Certain aspects of the New Education Policy (NEP 2020), resembling redesigning of Class 10 board exams and reforms in major college, “lack clarity”, he said, insisting that the Centre ought to have taken the states into confidence earlier than giving its approval.

“The prevailing education policy where each state has its own board to conduct exams up to the tenth standard cannot be altogether replaced by a new policy without any alternative mechanism in place. These things might not have been considered before ratification of the policy. I have pointed that out in the report,” the committee member informed PTI.

He claimed that the panel had a troublesome time understanding the implications of sure suggestions made for the nation’s larger education system, and maintained that the “reason for abolishment of MPhil for research scholars was not very clear”.

“This policy opens doors for foreign universities to set up base in the country. That is also not a welcome move as we already have top-class higher educational institutions in the country,” he said.

According to NEP 2020, college students should undertake college examinations in grades 3, 5 and eight, which might be performed by acceptable authority. Board exams for Grades 10 and 12 might be redesigned, it said.

The policy has additionally advocated a “broad-based, multi- disciplinary, holistic undergraduate education with flexible curricula, creative combinations of subjects, integration of vocational education and multiple entry and exit points with appropriate certification”.

The state authorities had earlier this month fashioned the six-member committee to review and share observations on the brand new policy, which was authorised by the Union Cabinet in July.

Among others, Jadavpur University Vice-Chancellor Suranjan Das, retired professor and TMC MP Sougata Roy, educationist Pabitra Sarkar and oncologist Nrisingha Prasad Bhaduri are members of the committee.

State education minister Partha Chatterjee had two weeks in the past slammed the policy, calling it a “copy of the system prevalent in western countries”.

He had additionally said that the TMC authorities would convey its opinion on the policy to the Centre after the six-member team submits its report.
