PM Modi reviews NEP implementation, pushes for a hybrid mode of learning



Chairing a high-level meeting to review the progress and implementation of the new National Education Policy (NEP) on Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi advocated developing a hybrid system of online and offline learning to “avoid overexposure of technology to school-going children”. He also emphasised the role of NEP in promoting multilingualism to remove language-related hurdles in academic attainment.

He stated that in the two years since NEP’s launch, many initiatives in achieving the objectives of access, equity, inclusivity and quality have been taken up. At the meeting, he praised the policy on how it can create special efforts to track out-of-school children and bring them back into the mainstream through the introduction of multiple entry and exit points in higher education. “Many transformative reforms have been initiated that will define and lead the progress of the country as it enters the Amrit Kaal,” he said. —
