Vision of education: A non-poem ahead of new National Policy on Education
Finally, it seems that the NDA Government's new National Policy on Education (NPE) will come to the public domain soon. In India, it has been envisaged that after every five year the NPE will be reviewed, revised and revamped. But, Indian education system has been irregular and slack in revising the policy itself and more so in its implementation, as is the general feeling.

Often, an education policy consists of the vision, values, principles about the educational and social development of students along with the listing, describing and explaining the governmental policies backed by laws, norms, procedures and rules that govern the implementation and operation of education system to match the policies.

Teachers have been considered central to educational reforms, quality of education and implementation of the NPE at grassroots, that is, at the institutional and classroom levels as in any envisaged vision of education.

According to UNESCO Document of 2015 titled 'Teacher Policy Development Guide: Summary', nine key dimensions are considered crucial to any comprehensive teacher policy such as Teacher Recruitment and Retention; Teacher education ( both initial or pre-service and continuing or in-service); Deployment; Career Structures/Paths, Teacher Employment and Working Conditions; Teach Reward and Remuneration; Teacher Standards; Teacher Accountability, and School Governance.

Anyway, even a citizen has a vision of education. Here, I describe my vision of education in our country through a non-poem.
