Draft National Education Policy Calls for Pragmatic Language Policy, Says Venkaiah Naidu

Bengaluru: Vice President Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday said the draft National Education Policy calls for a "pragmatic" language policy in which the mother tongue is given its due importance, as also the proficiency in other languages, required to advance in a multilingual world.

He also noted that it was time to "re-think, re-imagine and re-invent" the entire education system.

"We in India are now embarking on a major reform process. You would have read about the draft National Education policy that has been released for public debate a few days ago. It is a document that covers a whole range of issues in great detail. It seeks to lay out a path for making quality education accessible to all children and youth," Naidu said.

"It calls for a pragmatic language policy in which the mother tongue is given its due importance and so also is proficiency in other languages required to advance in a multilingual world," he added.

The Vice President was speaking at the inauguration of the golden jubilee celebrations of Sri Satya Sai Institute of Higher Learning.

"We have to shape the future. The onus of moulding the future is upon us collectively and we must not fail. It is time that we re-think, re-imagine and re-invent our entire education system," he added.(UPDATED ON JUNE 9TH 2019)
