National Education Policy
The Government of Jammu and Kashmir is implementing the National Education Policy and it will transform the entire educational institutions including the research fields.
Recently LG Manoj Sinha in the youth festival said that Young students are multi-faceted, multi-dimensional, he entrusted upon the Educational Institutions to discharge their responsibility to ensure freedom, creativity and engagement for them to become multi-achievers, and acquire knowledge & skills to thrive and shape their future.
Creative pursuits are a great medium for the young students to develop leadership skills, human values, willingness to take risks, understanding the power of new ideas, competency to face future challenges and to nurture personality traits.
Our focus on ensuring choice, collaboration, curiosity, communication, critical thinking, creativity, research & enhanced engagement in the education system can create better education goals and equip students with the necessary skills, knowledge & values.
He said that education is not about the race to come first but education is about achieving the highest peak of values in life. Institutions must ensure that the new learning framework and key concepts as recommended by National Education Policy are incorporated in curriculum.
He further emphasized on laying specific focus on creativity, critical thinking, collaboration to replace curriculum overload, more hours of learning to quality learning time. Syllabus should be more adaptable and dynamic, providing space for cutting edge innovation.
