While speaking at the National School Education Ministers' Conference in Gujarat on Thursday, Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said the Centre is working to establish "PM Shri schools," which will aim to prepare students for the future and will serve as a test bed for the new National Education Policy (NEP).
Dharmendra Pradhan, speaking at the second day's inaugural session, said: "The government is working to construct PM Shri schools, which would be fully equipped to help pupils prepare for the future. These cutting-edge schools will serve as NEP 2020's test bed."
For the creation of a prospective benchmark model in the shape of PM Shri schools, Pradhan invited proposals and feedback from all of our states/UTs and the whole education ecosystem. He went on to say that school education is the bedrock of a knowledge-based society, and that the NEP is a knowledge document aimed at promoting all-round development and making education accessible to all.
"We are living in the Amrit Kaal era. The next 25 years are critical for India's development as a knowledge economy dedicated to global welfare. We are a civilisation that believes in Vasudhaiv Kutumbukam, and we must recognise that we bear not just national but also global duties "The Union Minister was reported by ANI as stating.
