The current government is focused on educational reform (through the NEP 2020) and has increased its expenditure on education (6% of budgetary allocation in Budget 2022). The government should continue the reform and investment in education.
As an educator, here are 3 areas I wish the Government allocates funds towards in the budget 2023:
– push agenda of NEP 2020 in schools and colleges; to make Indian students and professionals globally competitive.
– promote digital education; to make education accessible to all & remove barrier of heavy infrastructure investment
– promote vocational training, especially in technology space; so India can become the services outsourcing hub for the world.
