Education is the backbone of a society, asserted Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh who urged teachers to render their services wholeheartedly, in a speech on Thursday.

In  his speech at the inaugural function of a “One Day Panel Discussion on National Education Policy, 2020” held in Imphal’s City Convention Centre today, Singh reminded teachers the crucial role in the all round development of a state.

Singh said “Education is the backbone of a society and no progress and development can be achieved without education.”

He added that the New Education Policy (NEP) 2020 aimed to incorporate the teaching of vocational skills within the school curriculum to augment innovation, adaptability, and productivity. 

This would certainly help in solving the unemployment problem to a larger extent, he hoped. 

He said that NEP had been revised taking into account the importance of quality education in making the country a global power.  “The NEP, 2020 is an India centric education policy,” he said.

State deputy chief minister, Y Joykumar Singh, who also spoke on the ocassion, asserted that human resource is the most important resource of a country.

“It is through proper education that youths can be shaped to develop better human resources. Education provides the ability for rational thinking which is necessary for solving any issues,” he said.

State education minister Sorokhaibam Rajen Singh said that National Education Policy 2020 was introduced under the supervision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make India a better country with qualified youths. 

The policy will be fully implemented within 2035, he said.

Asserting that the teaching profession has a big role in shaping a society, he appealed to teachers to show commitment in their responsibilities.

The one-day panel discussion will have two technical sessions consisting of school education and higher education.
