delivering the keynote address at National Workshop on NEP-2019
at Bilasipara College on 19th November 2019
Dhubri, 19th November 2019: The education system of the
country needs proper regulation, and academicians must be there
for this task in place of the politicians. This was stated by
Chancellor of the University of Science & Technology Meghalaya
today while making his Keynote Address at a daylong workshop on
“Proposed National Education Policy 2019 and Future Course of
Action” organized by Bilasipara College in Dhubri district of
Assam. The workshop was attended by academicians and college
teachers coming from across the region.
Deliberating on a future course of action for the new National
Education Policy (NEP), participants at the workshop agreed that
there should be proper regulation of the education system and
academicians must be there in place of politicians. It was also
suggested that the NEP has to focus on research and teaching
learning processes and that education must be meant for all.
Academicians were of the view that nothing can be achieved
merely by changing names of regulation authorities.
The workshop was planned in order to help the participants to
create awareness among the people and student-teacher community,
explore strengths and weaknesses of the proposed education
policy and make an effort to view the NEP-2019 purely from
national as well as regional perspective.
