How National Education Policy will impact India’s Private Coaching Industry (Times Of India)

With over 55% of school students enrolled in private tuitions, a look at how the new education policy will impact the industry

The National Education Policy 2020 wants to wean school children away from private tuition and coaching classes. “Focus on regular formative assessment for learning rather than the summative assessment that encourages today’s ‘coaching culture,” reads one of the objectives in the policy document. The NEP has also revealed the government’s intention to make CBSE Board exams easier, more flexible that will test a child’s core capacities/competencies. “Any student who has been going to and making a basic effort in a school class will be able to pass and do well in the corresponding subject Board Exam without much additional effort,” reads the document.
