The dazzling dreams shown to the youth of the country in the new education policy is like ‘climbing the ladder to the moon’. In the new education policy, the government has said many public breathtaking things, but it is also like other scheme smart city, Adarsh Sansad Nidhi Yojana, putting 15 lakh rupees in everyone’s bank account. The government is trying to show imaginary dreams to the country. Like other schemes have no concern on the ground plane, the government is going to do the same.
The government has kept the teachers of the country in a bad condition for the last 6 years through the Adhaq, Contractual, Temperary system. In the new education policy, many possibilities of exploitation of teachers are seen. In the new education policy, the government has said to spend 6% of GDP but thus the government is showing a dream of dazzling but the government is unable to explain how it will be able to execute this task.
Mother tongues are finding practical difficulties in importance in the new education policy. If children will study in mother tongue till sixth grade, then how will they deal through English in seventh grade?
Next problem: What will the children of employees of All India jobs do when their parents are transferred? Changing the province will also change their medium of education. If there are not even 5-10 students studying in their mother tongue, then what will be their medium of education?
Next problem will be their further education in their mother tongue? Are they BA, MA? And Ph.D. In your language? Is there any provision in this new education policy? On the one hand, the Modi government is talking about imparting primary education in the mother tongue; on the other hand, the government wants to bring the international education system to India under foreign investment, which will be through English medium. How can students educated in mother tongue suddenly become like English students? Will be able to find appropriate opportunities.
On the one hand, a large number of English medium students are selected in the competitive examinations of the country and on the same, those who study in the mother tongue are still wandering on the road. There is no government attention on them yet. This has led to the government’s double-handedness. The atmosphere of such discrimination is talking about education in mother tongue to economically backward people, opening the way for the people of the capitalist houses to study English in private institutions.
The English medium is opening up more employment opportunities for competitive students, on the other hand, is closing the doors of employment for those studying in the mother tongue. Can high government and non-government jobs be found through Indian languages? Will English be compulsory for recruitment? If so, will this incomplete change of medium not prove fruitless? That is, if the medium of study is mother tongue or national language and if the medium of employment, status, domination is English then why should people teach their children in mother tongue, regional language? These schools deprive 80-90 percent of the people of equality of opportunities.
Mother tongue will be the medium of primary education. This is a very commendable step, but the real question is that all important functions of Parliament, Government and courts will be in English, then who will teach their children through mother tongue? These people will be those who are rural, poor, farmers, backward, tribal, laborers. Those who belong to the middle class, belong to the upper caste, are urban, are already well educated, they will teach their children only through English medium. What will be the result? There will be two mental pieces of India. One India and the other India.
The next problem is that in the new education policy, a small number of students are studying, there has been talk of merging those institutions with other institutions. Which completely closes the path for women studying at the village level. For example, in Chhattisgarh Jharkhand Naxalite affected areas and hilly areas, a small number of students study in school.Instead of reforming them, the government is talking about closing them and merging them with other institutions. In the backward rural areas, the environment of teaching women away has not yet developed due to which the doors of education will be closed for many women.
The next problem is the provision of autonomous government in the new education policy, which is a sign of complete privatization. With this, every institution has the right to charge the amount of fees from its students, this system will start the business of making profits in government institutions, which will have a bad effect on the economically weaker students. That is, students of weaker sections will close the doors of education.
There is new education to say, but in reality there is a conspiracy of the government to take away the right to education from the majority class of the country.
The next problem is that there is no discussion of giving diversity representation in this education policy, which is an attempt to completely evict the socially deprived sections from the constitutional right. There is no surety that all sections of the country should have easy access to education. The next problem is that there is a provision to completely close the doors of study on contemporary issues of the country. There is a plan to close the doors of the government which raises questions.
The next problem is that there is some benefit of online learning. People from rural level who used to study in cities like Delhi can study from home, but the question arises that the frequency of internet is less at the rural level. The online education system will be successful when internet will be provided free to every section of the country, the government has done dazzling dreams without making any development in the infrastructure. The government is talking about online education system, but most of the children in the country are those who have neither smart mobile nor laptop at the moment. The teacher providing online education lacks these facilities.
The aim of providing education from teachers to students through online is that gradually the educated and students of the country get into the habit of online education and in the coming time the government can avoid making any kind of appointments. In the coming time, the government will smartly make available the students by recording the education being available through online.
After a while, there will be no need for any type of teacher nor will there be any need to appoint new teachers. In this way, the online education campaign is an attempt to take away their rights from incoming government jobs and teachers.
In charge of Delhi Pradesh Youth Congress, Dr. Anil Kumar Meena said that in the new education policy, the youth of the country should show many dreams of dazzling temptation by the Bharatiya Janata Party through social media electronic media. These dreams are the same as ‘climbing the ladder to the moon’. A ladder can never be made till the moon and this jumla cannot be completed.
Dreams of glare cannot be fulfilled without developing the basic education structure of the country. Ever since the Modi government came to power in the country, they did nothing except show dreams to the youth of the country. The youth of the country are currently suffering from suicide due to lack of employment. The government has not yet taken any concrete steps.
