Cambridge University had praised the National Education Policy of India and honoured the Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal for spearheading the education reforms to build a coherent and resilient education system, said Rod Smith, Managing Director, Global Education at Cambridge University Press. The Minister was honoured at the virtual National Conference on 'Empowering through Zero - Shunya Se Sashaktikaran', organised by the Sri Aurobindo Society on Tuesday.

Smith said, "Education and research are important tools of the world. India's education system has a long and illustrious history". He remembered the world's first university was established in 700 BC whereas the first and oldest women's college in Asia was established in Kolkata. "The studies of trigonometry, calculus and algebra all originated in India," he highlighted. The Managing Director appreciated the Union Education Minister for his "commitment" to "sustainable education" through the National Education Policy 2020. He further added for the last seven decades, India has largely focused on expanding access to education. 

"Now, with the recently launched NEP 2020, the focus has rightly shifted to the curriculum, pedagogy and assessment reforms. It promises to move the education system towards real understanding, away from the culture of rote learning," he said. About NEP, minister said "NEP 2020 is most comprehensive and futuristic policy document in educational history of this country". He said NEP lays the foundation of the new India as it focuses on development of competencies, skills and critical thinking of children. Minister reassure the Cambridge University representatives that India will take forward its role as a leader in the field of education.
