Education Board to be in Sync with NEP 2020

The Aam Aadmi Party has announced setting up of a separate education board for the capital in its annual budget in March this year.

"We are studying the policy in detail. We have already been working on some of the reforms proposed in it. There are a few anomalies but there are a few good things too. I have told the two committees that our board will be in sync with the NEP because as a nation we are together but the focus will not be on evaluating students once a year and encouraging rote learning in process,”said the education minister.
