Underscoring the role of the government in implementing various initiatives in the state of Goa, the Chief Minister said the Government has implemented several new educational policies to further improve the education system in the State.
Sawant said that NEP 2020 is a comprehensive policy framework that aims to reform and revitalize the education system in India.
He appealed to the stakeholders to provide constructive suggestions and feedback to further strengthen the policy. He added that implementing this policy is a combined effort of all stakeholders in the education sector.
