Mokokchung — All Nagaland Private Schools’ Association (ANPSA) Central president Nini Sekhose on Friday said that some aspects of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 are very challenging.

Addressing the ANPSA Mokokchung unit common programme at Town Hall in Mokokchung, she said many western education ideas and vocationalisation have been incorporated in the NEP to enhance students’ employability, which are positive aspects.

However, she said challenges faced by the western countries and India are different and that emphasis has given to non-detention policy under NEP, which did not prove to be conducive to the student community when it was implemented in the state some years ago.

Coming to private schools, she said that though private institutions received lots of accolades in the past, things have changed of late, especially in the higher secondary level.

Sekhose said that all private schools in Nagaland run on a low-budget and cannot compensate the teachers who are the backbone of the schools. On this, she said the time has come to see what can be done to make things better.

District Education Officer (DEO) Mokokchung, Sentinenla, informed that as per last year’s record, there are 256 schools in Mokokchung district, out of which 198 schools are government-run and the remaining are private.

However, out of the total 24907 students, more than fifty percent of the students were studying in private institutions, she said.

In terms of results, Kohima and Dimapur districts are comparatively doing much better than Mokokchung, she said, adding that government schools have outdone private institutions in the last HSSLC exam.

In this regard, Sentinenla called upon the private schools to work harder, saying “we are here to provide the best quality education to the students.”

She further said that transmitting bookish knowledge to the students is not enough but teachers need to go the extra mile and beyond the textbook to educate the students to become better citizens in the future.

She also appealed to the teachers to embrace life skills, inclusive education, digital education and give importance to the mental health of the students.

Deputy Commissioner of Mokokchung Thsuvisie Phoji also exhorted the gathering.
