“Engage, explore, experience, express and excel should be our mantra of new age learning for children,” he added.
“So far marks and marksheet dominated learning-based education in our country. Marksheet became ‘pressure sheet’ for students and ‘prestige sheet’ for families, NEP’s goal is to remove this pressure,” PM said.
