NEP is exclusionary: Minister on why it should be opposed
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
KERALA and Tamil Nadu have raised strong objections against the National Education Policy (NEP). Both the states fear that the NEP will make education accessible only to the elite class.
 
This is apart from a slew of other objections. R Bindu, Kerala’s Minister for Higher Education, says that the NEP will lead to communalisation of education, excess commercialisation and privatisation.
 
She spoke on why the state opposes the NEP and at the same time, how it cannot be completely rejected.
