Asserting that education is fundamental to bringing social change in society, Human Resources Development (HRD) Minister Prakash Javadekar said "the government is giving final touches to the New Education Policy, which will lay thrust on quality education for all."
The minister said "suggestions on the draft education policy are welcome and a deadline for comments on the draft was extended till September 15 this year."
He further added "the education policy should be in sync with contemporary realities and address the aspirations of the new generation. Active participation of society is essential for ensuring education for all. You cannot entrust the entire responsibility to government alone."
There are about 20 lakh teaching posts vacant in the country and Javadekar urged students to consider teaching as a valuable career option and ask them not to confine themselves to only engineering and medical field.
On the occasion Javadekar also handed over financial assistance to meritorious poor students who had scored high marks in SSC examination of Maharashtra Board, fighting against all odds.
