The Centre would invite suggestions from students, teachers and parents for the proposed New Education Policy, the process of which will begin from next year, Union Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Zubin Irani said on Monday.
"For the New Education Policy, we will go to all the states. We will invite suggestions from students, teachers and parents for it and will discuss with them how this policy should be," Irani said at a function here.
The government would use all the media -- print, electronic and Internet -- for engaging the society in the process, she said.
Stating that all the past education policies were framed by educationists and academicians, she said for whom such a policy mattered most were never associated. Irani, however, added: "I am not here to blame the past.
I am here to frame the course for the future." The minister said the process for the New Education Policy for the country will begin from next year. India had last formulated the National Education Policy in 1986.
