The draft of the new National Education Policy has projected to expand the boundaries of the right to education act which will formally cover the age of Three years of preschool before class 1. All Indian students can soon enter the education system at three. Prof. M.K. Sridhar, member of the committee of Draft National Education Policy 2019 has said that “the three-language policy was recommended for implementation right from beginning three years of basic education.
He was speaking during a discussion on the draft of the National Education Policy 2019, which was organized by Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) at Canara First Grade College on June 9. At present the 15 years of the education system, spread from elementary to colleges is divided into 10+2+3. In the draft, National Education Policy 2019, the combination of 15 years had conceptualized in 5+3++3+4 pattern from pre-primary to 12th standard.
Thus, the basic formal education starts at the age of three years instead of five years. He also said that “a child’s brain attains 80% development at the age of six years. A child attains individuality at this age only. That is why education should be informal in nature from three to eight years of age. Learning of languages should be given preferences in this age and it aids in the creative development of the child.
