Panjim: Education should be student-centric and not teacher-centric, Maharashtra and Goa Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari said here on Monday.
Addressing a press conference of Governors on the National Education Policy(NEP) 2020, he remarked, “While it is important to make education employment-oriented, it is all the more necessary to make it ‘man making’ to shape the character of students.”
Laying emphasis on morals and values while implementing the NEP, he stressed, “Macro management through small committees needs to be done to translate benefits of the Policy at the ground level.
President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the inaugural session of the day-long Conference on ‘Role of NEP 2020 in Transforming Higher Education’.
The interactive session was attended by Union Minister of HRD Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, Minister of State Sanjay Dhotre, Chairman of the Committee on National Education Policy Dr K Kasturirangan and others.
