Meghalaya Govt ‘not impressed’ with draft National Edu Policy 2019
SHILLONG | June 28, 2019:
Meghalaya Education Minister, Lahkmen Rymbui on Friday said that the State Government will face great difficulties in implementing the provisions laid down in the draft National Education Policy, 2019.
According to the Minister, the 448 pages draft National Education Policy of the Centre stated that the secondary level will be upto Class XII.
"This would mean that all existing secondary schools in the State which presently have classes upto Class X will have to create facilities upto Class XII. It will be very difficult for these schools since they would not have the necessary funds to upgrade their schools to Class XII. But the policy is silent whether or not the Centre will fund the existing secondary schools in the State to upgrade to Class XII," Meghalaya Education Minister said after a review meeting on the proposed policy with the officials of the department yesterday.
