NEP misses the fundamental goal of human development: Congress

New Delhi: The Congress on Sunday said the new National Education Policy (NEP) misses “the fundamental goal of human development and expansion of knowledge” and questioned the government’s move to push it through during the coronaviruspandemic without adequate consultation.

The party alleged that the policy circumvented parliamentary oversight and there has been no discussion with academics except the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

Addressing a joint virtual press conference, former Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister M. Pallam Raju, chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala and former Rajya Sabha MP Rajeev Gowda said the NEP is high on “catchwords and verbosity” but lacks critical finances and a coherent roadmap for implementation.

They also said the NEP will further the digital divide between the poor and the rich and promotes privatisation of public education that “will lead to education going out of reach of the middle class and the disadvantaged in the society”.
