In the context of NEP,' Traditional schooling has seen great upheaval for good.' On Friday, Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal 'Nishank' said that in the context of the New Education Policy-2020, the traditional model of education has now seen a great upheaval for good (NEP). This will not only encourage students to choose the material and length of their thesis but will also help them bravely face real-life circumstances, Nishank said in his convening address at the digitally held Avinshilingam University for Women. The concerns that the students had previously answered from inside the textbooks would now be in front of them, he added, finding pragmatic answers for them.

NEP-2020 is so versatile and enriched that it provides teachers and students alike with lots of opportunities to explore education from refined viewpoints and to use the ample opportunities available, a release citing the Minister said. "The traditional education model presented to us by our parents and grandparents has now seen a great upheaval for good in the form of the Current Education Policy 2020 (NEP)," he said.

He shared his excitement that even in technical institutions such as IITs and NITs, more girls continue to succeed, adding that schooling is equally important for both boys and girls.

D. Litt Degree (honoris causa) was bestowed on the minister by the university for his contribution to the field of education.

The graduates were granted a total of 2506 degrees (UG-1893, PG-534, M.Phil-40, Ph.D.-39) and only Ph.D’s and Gold Medal Award winners were awarded their degrees and awards on the dais by the Chancellor, S P Thyagarajan, in compliance with the Covid-19 policy guidelines.

NEP 2020: A New Education Strategy (NEP) aimed at universalizing education from pre-school to secondary education was approved by the Union Cabinet in July 2020.The NEP-2020, which will replace the 1986 National Education Policy, is an inclusive structure that focuses on higher education at the elementary level in the region.By 2030, NEP-2020 has an objective of 100 percent Gross Enrolment Ratio (GEER) in school education, as the goal of the education system is to help children so that no children can enroll in school education and misses the ability to learn and succeed due to birth or context circumstances.

The strategy reaffirms that one of the key priorities of all education sector reform programs will continue to be to bridge socioeconomic differences in access, engagement, and learning outcomes in school education.
