So lets talk about some basic changes which are going to happen in our education system in near future.
Key points of NEP 2020
New academic and curricular structure of school training (5+3+3+4): 3 years in Anganwadi/pre school and 12 years in school.
For offspring of 3 to 6 years: Access to free, sheltered, excellent ECCE at Anganwadis/Pre school/Balvatika.

Changes after Class 12
The new Education strategy as brought numerous section leave programs which fundamentally implies in straightforward words for instance an understudy has chosen a specific degree like B.tech for graduation after twelfth and after the first year of school he/she feels that they are not, at this point keen on that equivalent course or degree then they can change to an alternate program. Presently, this is an astonishing possibility for an understudy as understudies will have the option to investigate numerous subjects and select the best one for themselves.
Presently let’s talk about some questionable purpose of this NEP
The absolute first questionable point in this NEP is the language as indicated by the NEP the best language till eighth grade will be the home language, the territorial or nearby language. Despite the fact that it is referenced there in the approach that no language would be constrained on the understudies Sanskrit and old style language will be accessible as an alternative and after the ninth there’ll be unknown dialects in choices also.
The next questionable part is the handy execution of this strategy in the current circumstance of the instruction in the country.
