A one-day consultative meeting discussing the curriculum and syllabus of Higher Secondary level to be followed under National Education Police 2020 was held at Manipur State Guest house, Sanjenthong, Imphal West on Tuesday.
The meeting was organised by the Council of Higher Secondary Education Manipur (COHSEM).
Speaking on the occasion, chairman of COHSEM, T Ojit, said NEP 2020 is a policy where the education system of the state will be able to compete up to the level of international arena. The new education policy will be able to fill up the flaws of the former education policy that had been implemented in the state and will be able to bring more quality education among the students of Manipur, he added.
He said one of the most important benefits of NEP, 2020 will be that the students up to class VIII can learn in their respective dialect which will not only bring better quality education but will also promote local dialect. NEP 2020 will give priority to vocational courses and it could give a positive impact on the state’s economy, said Ojit.
Ojit further said they will try to convert into action the resolutions resolved during the meeting.
Assistant professor of Manipur College, S Birjit, spoke on ‘open learning for higher secondary state with reference to NEP, 2020’; assistant professor of DM College of teacher education, Kh Dineshkumar spoke ‘Empowering the Content of the Curriculum through divergent scope for measuring demand skill’ and principal of L Sanoi College, Nambol, W Jotirmoy spoke on ‘Child Oriented Examination’.
