Active GD-The results of the National Education Policy 2020 will be positive- Best Participants!The recently concluded Active GD on the topic The results of the National Education Policy will be positive- Agree or Disagree had an encouraging and active participation. At the outset, I thank all the participants for putting up their arguments well and for maintaining the decorum of the forum.
Though many points in the policy was not covered by the participants and a few of them kept their arguments around a few, the discussion was quite lively with the participants attempting to strengthen their stand and also posing questions and countering the view points of others. I must say that most of the arguments were put forth logically and that is a highlight.
The draft policy submitted by Dr K. Kasthurirangan Committee which had about 484 pages was reduced to 64 pages when it was approved by the Cabinet. There may be additions or amendments before it finally becomes a bill. We also need to understand that most of the recommendations will bring in results only if they are implemented as intended by the committee. Again, there are many recommendations which call for an amendment to certain Constitutional provisions before being implemented. So, as of now, it is just that the policy has been accepted by the Cabinet, there are many hurdles to be crossed before it actually becomes a bill and is implemented. And the final results are something that we need to wait and see.
So now, we are announcing the Best Participants of the GD and they are-
3. Nadeem Naqvi and
4. Dr. Deepali Gangwar
It has also been decided to award SuN a Consolation prize for his timely interventions.
The best participants will receive a cash reward of Rs 150/- each and the consolation prize is of Rs 50/-.
Cash rewards and additional points as deemed fit would be added to the best responses from the other participants too based on their overall performance.
Friends, please join me to congratulate the winners! We hope to see more of you joining such debates as and when they are announced.
