West Bengal Government forms a 6 member committee to study New Education Policy

The political storm caused by the announcement of the National Education Policy 2020 is being witnessed in many states. When the policy was announced, the state education minister of West Bengal slammed the NEP 2020 as being a copy of the education policy in western countries. He said that “I wonder how they (Centre) can think of enforcing it without any discussion in the Parliament or with the states. This is unilateral.” Now, the state government has formed a committee of six members and share their observations on the NEP 2020.

This committee will comprise of several notable academicians including Mr. Sougata Roy (Retired Professor), Mr. Suranjan Das (Vice-Chancellor Jadavpur University), Sabyasachi Basu Roy Chowdhury (Rabindra Bharati University Vice-Chancellor), Avik Majumdar (West Bengal syllabus committee chairman) Nrisingha Prasad Bhadur (Indologist) and educationist Pabitra Sarkar.

Careful Scrutiny of The NEP 2020 In West Bengal

While interacting with the media, the education minister stated that the committee will scrutinize the provisions of the National Education Policy and subsequently submit a report to the state government by 15th August 2020. He also added that, “We will also seek views of schoolteachers and varsity professors on the matter. Once the committee submits its report, following careful observations, we will convey our opinion on the new policy to the Centre.” 

The state education minister registered his apprehensions regarding the NEP 2020 in front of the media. He added that, “As a political party, we have our reservations regarding the NEP, 2020. We have formed a six-member committee that will examine the NEP’s merit.” He further stated that, “The state government was not consulted. We would have registered our reservations. But no one from Bengal was included in the committee that formulated the NEP.”

NEP 2020: Other States Also Opposing The Provisions

West Bengal is not the only state that is opposing the provisions of NEP 2020. Tamil Nadu government as well as the opposition parties have also resisted the three-language formula recommended in the NEP 2020 and dubbed it as an attempt to force Hindi and Sanskrit on Tamil people. It is yet to be seen how other state governments and political parties view the sweeping changes introduced under the NEP 2020.
