Call for Chapters for the Edited Book on National Education Policy 2020: Vision for India's Future Education
"A Nation is advanced in proportion to education and intelligence spread among the masses" - Swami Vivekananda
Universal Declaration of Human Rights declares, "Everyone has the right to education". Education is fundamental tools for achieving full human potential, developing an equitable and just society, and promoting national development. Providing universal access to quality education is the key to economic growth, social justice and equality, scientific advancement, national integration and cultural preservation. India will have the highest youth population in the world over the couple of year, and ability to provide high-quality educational opportunities will help them to shape the future of our country.
The world is undergoing rapid changes in the knowledge landscape. With the rise of big data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, many unskilled jobs worldwide may be taken over by machines, while the need for skilled labour, particularly involving mathematics, computer science and data science, in conjunction with multi-disciplinary abilities across the sciences, social sciences and humanities, will be in rapidly increasing demand.
The States are facing two-fold challenges, firstly to compete with new economic order where, if State fails to train its human resources, it will face economical difficulty. Secondly, it has to also preserve its culture, language, identity, and its heritage. This is not easy especially in case of India where every state has its own language, culture, identity which is ensured by the Constitution of India. Thus, the New Education policy will certainly be the need for ensuring quality of education according to the Article 21A of the Constitution of India and pacing with developed nation and competitive world so that social economic well-being can be achieved.
The Union Cabinet on 29th July, 2020 has approved the new National Education Policy (NEP), 2020 with an aim to introduce several changes in the Indian education system - from the school to college level. This is not the first education policy before NEP 2020, there were NEP 1968, 1986, 1992. Thus, we need to evaluate and assess the impact of the NEP 2020 on future of the education system in India.
The aim of the upcoming book is to critically discuss impact of the NEP 2020 on our education system not only national level but also implication on state education system along with Right of Education, impact on minority educational institution and the financial implication, burden sharing between Center and State. Further, as to how NEP is going to face constitutional challenges, as education not only included under Article(s) 21A, 30 but also the role of 7th schedule on Center or State relations.
