NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to launch the Akhil Bhartiya Shiksha Samagam on Thursday, July 7. This is organized by the Ministry of Education in association with UGC and Banaras Hindu University.
The three-day seminars will bring together more than 300 vice-chancellors and directors from public and private universities, academics, policymakers, as well as representatives from business to discuss how the National Education Policy 2020 can be implemented more broadly across the nation following the successful implementation of several initiatives over the previous two years, the Ministry of Education said in a statement.
Yogi Adityanath, the chief executive of Uttar Pradesh, Anandiben Patel, the governor of that state, and Dharmendra Pradhan, the minister of education for the federal government, will also be participating the samagam.
According to a release from the Education Ministry, "The Summit will give prominent Indian higher education institutions (HEIs) a forum to discuss, deliberate, and share insights on approaches, success stories, and best practises in executing the National Education Policy, 2020."
The ministry added that while many colleges have onboarded the reform train, many more still need to adopt and adapt to the changes. In-depth conversations are needed to move the policy implementation forward because the higher education ecosystem in the country covers the federal government, the states, and private organisations.
The Summit is expected to serve and provide a platform for stimulating discussions that will outline the roadmap and implementation strategies, promote knowledge sharing and the development of networks through interdisciplinary discussions, and address problems that educational institutions are currently facing and propose solutions.
