Demerits of nep 2020:

In this article, we will discuss the demerits of nep. There are a number of benefits of this new education policy but it has some demerits too.

  • Now, Teaching will be done in local languages till class 5. It is quite a good decision to promote the local language but declaring it as a medium of teaching doesn’t seem to be a good idea.
  • If a student is from Madhya Pradesh and now he moved to Punjab and joins a school there then teaching will be done in the local language. This will impact that student clearly.
  • According to this NEP, future teachers need to have a B.Ed degree which will come after 4 years of study. What about govt. teachers who don’t know anything but getting huge salaries. This policy needs to mention something regarding this too.
  • Multiple exit option can also be misused, so the government should keep an eye on this.
  • Implementation of this policy is not easy and it will take some time for fully implementation of this policy.
  • There is nothing mentioned about improvement of govt. schools to bring them up on par with private schools.
  • Making the universities multidisciplinary is a good idea but you can’t force them to be excellent at all courses. For example IITs for engineering, DU college for arts.
  • Only New batches will be benefited with this approach. Class 9th will be the first class from session 2021-22.
The New National Education Policy is offering a very good policy for students. This will also encourage students to study in India as compared to study in abroad. Let’s see how govt. apply this policy and how much time it takes for full implementation.
