Full Article

The 484-page long Draft National Education Policy (DNEP)  of 2019 has led to a tremendous amount of discussion across India. In a series of original (and a few cross-posted) articles, Confluence brings together the views of scientists, activists, economists, institutional leaders and a number of other stake-holders in the society, who examine the various facets of the DNEP from different points of view. We hope that this multiplicity of perspectives will help the readers of Confluence to get a better feel for the implications of this momentous (and monumental!) document at a crucial point in the history of Indian education.

How do I apply for a course that assures me to upgrade my teaching skills from a private tutor to a NEP RECOGNISED TEACHER.
