New education policy to be announced before May 26

New Delhi
The much-awaited new education policy will be announced before May 26 when the Narendra Modi government completes its two years in office, Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Smriti Irani said.
"The National Education Policy will be before the nation by May 26," she said in response to a question at the IndiaTV conclave on the completion of two years of National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government.""Under the new education policy, NCERT will address all those challenges facing the education system," she said, adding, it needs to address many issues as even students say they know more about Renaissance than about Maharana Pratap. On the No-Detention Policy introduced by United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government in schools, she said a review is being carried out and"a decision will be taken soon".
"No-Detention Policy has led to students being unable to cope in class 9. The state governments want it scrapped," she said. She said the government was taking a number of initiatives towards providing education to all and an endeavour 'Swayam' was being undertaken with the help of IITs, IIMs, central universities, NITs and some private universities to provide free online education to children for classes 9 to 12, including Board examinations.
