USTM Chancellor M Hoque delivering the keynote address at National Workshop on NEP-2019 at Bilasipara College on 19th November 2019
Bilasipara, 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.
