The National Education Policy is, no doubt, all set to bring a revolution in the Indian education system. It is viewed as an important tool to help evolve our age-old teaching practices, especially during the pandemic.
COVID-19 outbreak has challenged our pedagogy so much that every aspect was uprooted and turned a straight 180 degrees. India definitely needed a plan of action, a new-age solution to the new-age problems, along with that a much-needed upgrade in the traditional classroom techniques.
Since its announcement, the policy has been much appreciated. Recently, it was the President of India, Mr Ram Nath Kovind, who applauded the efforts of newly named ‘Education Ministry’, and the team that worked for the development of NEP along with Education Minister, Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank.’
Mr President has been tweeting about the ongoing Shikshak Parv of 2020 that’s happening from 8-25 September, during which numerous webinars are being held to discuss the execution of NEP in depth.
Scroll down to go through all the popular tweets by the President of India dated 19th Sept. 2020.

The NEP 2020 document mentions nearly 20 great scientists, saint-scholars and thinkers from ancient India. I request you all to develop study material on them and other such great ancient scholars. Their work should be rewritten in modern terminology.— President of India (@rashtrapatibhvn) September 19, 2020
