The new National Education Policy, (NEP) 2020 was launched on July 29, 2020 came under criticism by many experts. While it has the lofty vision of increasing the budget of education and 100% enrolment of school education up to the secondary level, there is little clarity on how these goals will be achieved.
In this episode of the Suno India Show, Tarun Nirwan, co-founder and digital lead at Suno India spoke to Kiran Bhatty, senior fellow at Centre for Policy research about the National Education Policy, 2020.
Kiran has served as the national coordinator for Right to Education or RTE at the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) and as an education expert on a range of national and international projects, including the committees that established the guidelines for merging the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) with the RTE. She currently serves on the Advisory Committee for Data and Management Systems at the National University for Education Planning and Administration (NUEPA).
