Will NEP bring transformation in education?

In the first part of CNM series of NEP discussions,Rinitha CP looks on NEP impact in school level education. 
The NEP has brought a massive change in the mode of education across the nation. The system that has remained more or less unchanged throughout the years is going to be facing a change in drastic measures.
The NEP aims to develop the education system of the nation into a better one by proposing a standard that enhances the knowledge about an individual’s fundamental rights, constitutional values , and also about human rights, sustainable development and global well being.
The Key Principles that The NEP aims to follow are :
• Respect for Diversity and Local Context
• Equity and Inclusion
• Community Participation
• Use of Technology
• Emphasize Conceptual Understanding
• Unique Capabilities
• Critical Thinking and Capabilities
• Continuous Review
  • Foundational Stage
The new curriculum will include 4 stages of education. The first stage called the Foundational Stage will include multilevel activity- based Learning for children aged from 3 to 6(Pre- School) and 6 to 8 (Class 1 and 2).
  •  Preparatory Stage
The second stage known as The preparatory Stage will include activity based and interactive classroom learning for children aged 8 to 11 ( Class 3-5). the third is the Middle Stage in which students will have experiential learning of science, mathematics, arts, social sciences and humanities. This will be fir students aged between 11 to 14 (classes 6-8).
  • Final Stage
The final stage is The secondary stage which will encourage multidisciplinary study, greater critical thinking, flexibility and student choice of subjects for students of the age group from 14-18 (class 9-12).
The NEP will be showing a reduction in curriculum. The curriculum will be sorted down to the core essentials. More importance will be given to Critical Thinking. The classes will be made more interactive rather than simply based on textbook. Fun and creative activities will lead to experimental learning.
The curriculum and pedagogy will be transformed by 2022.
The NEP will focus on subject integration. There will be no separation between  curricular and co- curricular, academic and vocational, Science and Humanities, Sports,Arts and Academics. There will be promotion of multi lingual teaching, digital literacy, scientific temper and competency  based education.
It will be mandatory for students to acquire skills in health and nutrition, physical education, fitness, wellness and sports. Giving importance to the mental and physical health and well being of the students, there will be Health Check Ups, counsellors will be hired in school complexes to interact with students facing various mental issues.
Also there will be concern for reducing the weight of school bags, extra care will be given to children with disability and it will be ensured that children learn inclusive and caring culture at school.
