SDG 4 for India: National Education Policy (NEP) 2019

Let's shape the instrument to shape the future of our future generations.

Robust education policy is the prerequisite for quality education in any country. The importance of quality education in the sustainable development of the planet could be gauged with the fact that it has been adopted as SDG 4 in the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set up in 2015 for the year 2030.

The education shapes a child’s development, developed children shape the nation and nations shape the future of the planet. Besides the provision for basic needs of life such as food and good health, quality education is a pre-requisite for the holistic development of a child and also for achieving the global goals.

The proposed National Education Policy (NEP) 2019, presently being discussed as a draft, will be a crucial document to achieve the targets of SDG 4 for 17.5 per cent of the world population. This will be the third education policy for the largest democracy of the world upon its adoption. First education policy was adopted in 1968 while the second in 1986. Both these policies were formulated by a closed group of people without much public discourse.  However, advances in information technology have made public discourse possible through the use of online platforms and related tools. Our generation is blissful to have such opportunities for open discourse by ensuring the participation of a diverse set of minds to enrich the policy paradigms for shaping the future of coming generations.

Devdiscourse has launched a live discourse on the draft of NEP 2019. Here we present diverse news and views on the policy and provide an opportunity to our readers for sharing their views and ideas in the form of scholastic articles, blogs, analysis, comments and videos till June 25, 2019.  The output of the discourse will be compiled and presented to the HRD Ministry for consideration.
