Sikkim Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang said his government will set up an education reform commission to draw a comprehensive policy in line with the NEP.
He added that the National Education Policy (NEP), approved by the Centre, is an overarching vision and comprehensive framework for both school and higher education sectors.
“The state government will set up a Sikkim Education Reform Commission to draw a comprehensive policy and strategy in line with the National Education Policy, 2020,” he said. The chief minister also said the government has planned to set up one model school in each district with innovative teaching and learning methodologies.
Taking a cue from Prime Minister’s slogan for self-reliant India, Tamang said the state government will strive for making Sikkim an ‘atmanirbhar’ state and encourage people to consume locally produced items.
