  4. Nicely structured post and hopefully with the NEP, rote learning gets thrown out of our education system.

  5. I am awaiting the implementation of NEP. I hope we can make it effective soon. Online teaching is difficult and different but now I think the urban private schools have adjusted. However our rural population and government schools in urban areas have not been able to cope up and that’s where majority of reforms are required. I hope these kids get proper care and education during this Covid times.

  6. I am looking forward to seeing how the new system changes things for children in the coming years,

  8. So many things are happening all over the world and same is the case with the education sector. Some changes are good but they have their cons too. Online education gives them the flexibility but on the other hand is increasing the screen time. Really keen on seeing the execution of the New Education Policy. Nice post. All the best for Alexa.

  10. You are so right and I am so glad all these steps are in the right direction and are much needed

  11. With the new normal and everything changing, why should education be left behind? Our Education system needed a desperate change, thank God for it finally happening.

  12. Very true, there are so many avenues of education that have opened up. SO much has come directly to our doorsteps due the the current lockdown. We have truly learnt to evolve

  13. The best education trends that ruled over India in 2020 explained well. Also, I agree that the new education policy is amazing and such a good change for the new kids.

  14. A very informative post on the latest ongoing trends.
    Education in India has come a long way with varied options and choices.
    The New Education policy is sure to bring a better change.
    We as parents as well as teachers and students we all learned a lot during this lockdown and online classroom and slowly trying to adjust to it.

  15. With the changing times, we definitely needed a change in the education system too. Hope the change is for the good. Very well-written post.

  16. Looking forward to the changes. They are long due.

  17. Quite a succinct post that I am sure would be useful for parents everywhere. It is time we did away with rote learning and let children explore more.

  18. One sector that has been turned on its head is definitely this. Well elaborated.

  19. it’s difficult at every level teachers, students, parents but everyone is coping the best they can in this scenario. it’s the digital era for education too.

  20. I think its a welcome change and as is with any new reform it will take time adjusting to it. High time the “10 + 2” structure is replaced with the “5+3+3+4” model.

  21. I strongly feel that New education Policy should not just remain on papers and should see the light of the day. This is the real revolution in education Industry and favorable to all the students.

  22. This is such a well-articulated and apt post. The Education system is taking a makeover and it is need of the hour as well to keep the younger generation relevant to the changing times. But what remains to be seen is how this NEP-2020 is implemented. It all looks great as policy but proper implementation is the key.

  23. The shift from rote learning to practical skill-based learning is indeed a welcome change. The NEP does have several heartening changes that it applied well could revolutionalise the education system in India.

  24. Very informative. We will have to wait and watch the NEP. Education is changing fast and I hope it’s for the good.

  25. Yes, the changes are taking time to adjust to, but the new education policy seems promising. We will find balance soon.

  26. Education changed in 2020 alot. Online classes are difficult for both teachers and students initially but now its going smooth.

  27. I can’t wait to see the changes NEP will bring with itself, the overall policy is great but in the end, all depends on the schools how they implement it.

  28. This new trend is equally difficult for kids and teacher, cant wait to see how the NEP will bring on the changes

  29. My heart just breaks when I hear how the on going education system is running. With no proper exams till a certain age and in some school kids don’t even have a proper grammar or maths base… It hurts. When I came across the new education policy i was happy to know about the changes and I am hoping they will implement them well.

  30. No doubt the new education system would be a progressive one and this post was indeed the most read by parents. ?

  31. Yes, lot of new ways of teaching have been invented in last few months along with NEP. Hopefully it will give more practical approach to the education which we lacked during our time.

  32. It is not the education policy or system need a change. A change in the mindset of society, teachers and the parents required the most. We have to accept new changes , new way and new generation with open mindedness and live. Humanity, life skills and adaptability and acceptance of failure is what we need to teach above all other things. #lifemarblesRead

  36. Education changed its faced drastically this year. It is very tricky to cope.

  37. My friend and I were discussing only last week how cool it is that we can use technology to impart education now. Instead of just theory, we can show them practically what something is. It was one of my favourite things about the new education policy.
