Draft of New Education Policy of 2019 bats for '5+3+3+4 schooling'; '10+2 scheme' is run out
It reported that the draft of the new National Policy on Education has recommended to do away with '10+2' scheme and proposed a '5+3+3+4' school structure for the age group 3 to 18 years.

The intention is to introduce a uniform the school education pattern  in the country  so as 'to deliver the vision of education enunciated in this policy and to prepare our students optimally in the 21st Century', reveals the committee constituted for revamp of the policy. The +4 stage will consist of grades 9 to 12.  First five years of schooling will consists of three years of primary education and grades one and two for the age group 3 to 8 years.

In the first cabinet meeting of the new NDA Government, the draft New Education Policy was released by the MHRD minster, Ramesh Pokhriyal; and people have been asked to give their suggestions by June 30 for its finalization.

It has been proposed that for school education, the curricula will be decided by the SCERTs at the state level. However, for the pre-primary classes, the NCERT will prepare the curriculum. Up to age of 8 years, education of children will be in their mother tongue. It has been proposed that to promote education in technology, a National Education Technology Forum will be constituted along with a National Research Agency.

"It seems that education sector is going to move towards privatisation of education with education voucher system for school education as is in vogue in many welfare states of the West," felt a private school teacher in Jaipur while reacting to the draft policy.
