Happy New Year: Education is an essential tool for every person. Education is important for both men and women. A good education can serve many purposes in life. Education is vital for the development of any country. Considering all this, a new education policy was implemented in our country. Also, board exams were not conducted this year due to Kovid. Moreover, this year our country received Dharmendra Pradhan as the new Education Minister.
There are some big changes here
New Education Policy
The year 2021 is very important in terms of education. Different states have implemented a new education policy this year. Several states including Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh have taken steps to implement it. In terms of the NEP, there have been many universities working this year. In addition, various programs have been organized to raise awareness of NEP among students, parents and teachers. This has been praised by experts and has been opposed by some.
New Education Minister

Experts believe that, with the advent of the corona epidemic, digital literacy among people has increased rapidly. We have left the traditional methods of education very fast and joined the medium of digital education. This does not spoil the future of children. But while answering questions about digital devices in the Lok Sabha, Minister of Education Dharmendra Pradhan presented statistics on nearly 70% of students in Jammu and Kashmir and Madhya Pradesh not being able to access digital devices. States such as Jharkhand, Karnataka, Assam and Bihar recorded the highest number.
CBSE has changed the paradigm
To stand the test of time, the Central Board of Secondary Education introduced a new model for its academic session 2021-2022. The tests will be conducted twice a year in a new sample with 50% syllabus for each. The first session test will be a 90-minute test consisting of case-based and justified reasoning MCQs. The second period, which will take place in March-April, will be a two-hour test with long and short questions.
According to the policy of the Right to Education Act at the beginning of the year, about 10 million girls in our country are at risk of dropping out of school. In August, Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan had said about 15 crore children were out of the education system. According to the UDISE report, the dropout rate for India at the secondary school level was 17%, with four states reporting dropout rates of up to 30%.
With the struggle of IIT Madras professor Deepa Mohanan, who resigned on account of casteism in her institution, there have been many such cases reflecting the inherent caste nature of our country’s education sector. The Vice Chancellors of UGC Universities have written to universities to ensure that there is no caste discrimination. The letter also suggested that the administration should be sensible to handle such cases and develop a portal for its remediation.
Board exams canceled
The Kovid-19 board also suffered damage in tests. Due to this, CBSE’s 10th and 12th board exams in 2021 have been canceled. Several states including Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat have canceled board exams.
CTET is valid for life
The validity of the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) Certificate, which is required for the recruitment of Teacher Posts in the country, has been increased to life expectancy by seven years. The decision was announced by the then Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank. First, the validity of the certificate is only 7 years.
