Word “Public” to be removed from private schools

Many amendments are going on in National Education Policy (NEP), like dropping Hindi as a compulsory subject in schools. Now, a new change has been made that states that “Private schools will not use the word ‘public’ in their names in any communication, documentation or declaration of status. Within the next three years, this change will be compulsory for all private schools. This means, from now onwards, schools like Delhi Public School would now be called just Delhi School. “Regulation of private schools will be conducted within the same framework as public schools, and all policies will apply equally to public and private schools,” the draft proposed. This policy was headed by Mr. Kasturirangan who is the former ISRO Chairman. The National Education Policy is inspired by India’s culture and tradition, which will be implemented in the Indian education system.
