SHILLONG, Sep 26: A major obstacle in the path of the NEP implementation has been cleared with the state government on Tuesday announcing that the Centre will provide funds to Meghalaya under the Pradhan Mantri Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (PM-USHA).
The announcement by Education Minister Rakkam A Sangma gains significance as funds to set up the required infrastructure was the focal point of the protest by the teachers’ associations against the “hasty” implementation of the National Education Policy.
“Withdrawal of NEP is out of question. It has already been implemented from the central government’s side. We have a scheme called PM-USHA. Proposal screening and signing of MoU with the state government has already been completed and the GOI is going to support the state government in infrastructure development,” Sangma said.
“The state government has created 500-600 posts under peoples’ colleges (or community colleges) to implement the NEP 2020,” he added.
Talking about the opposition from the MCTA on the alleged hasty implementation of the policy, he said, “Every individual is a lecturer or a professor and they know what is better for the students. Their interests should not compromise the future of the students”.
