To give quality education and to prepare students for the future Centre is planning to set up “PM Shri Schools.” Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Thursday declared that “The next 25 years are crucial to establishing India as a knowledge economy that is committed to global welfare. We all have to collaboratively work together, and learn from each other’s experiences and successes to make learning more vibrant and take India to greater heights.


While addressing the two-day National Education Minister’s Conference in Gujarat, the Education Minister said, “school education is the foundation on which India will become a knowledge-based economy and the National Education Policy (NEP) is a knowledge document that aims to promote all-round development and make education accessible to everyone. We are in the process of establishing ‘PM Shri schools’ which will be fully equipped to prepare students for the future.”

Stating that these state-of-the-art schools will be the “laboratory of NEP 2020,” the minister further revealed, “we cannot deprive our new generation of 21st-century knowledge and skills. 

I also encourage and solicit suggestions and feedback from all our states and Union Territories and the entire education ecosystem for creating a futuristic benchmark model in the form of PM Shri schools.” The National Education Ministers’ Conference began in Gujarat’s Gandhinagar on Wednesday with a focus on the implementation of the new NEP.

The Education Minister said the 5 3 3 4 approaches of the NEP cover pre-school to secondary school, emphasis on Early Childhood Care and Education Programme (ECCE), teacher training and adult education, integration of skill development with school education and prioritizing learning in the mother tongue are steps for preparing global citizens of the 21st century.

I encourage Education Ministers of all states and Union Territories and also seek active participation from all stakeholders for developing our National Curriculum Framework as well as developing quality e-content for expanding the reach of digital education and for universalizing education,” Pradhan said.
