Policy Analysis: An Analysis of National Education Policy 2020
University of Glasgow, United Kingdom
This paper analyses the National Education Policy 2020 (pages 1-32), the official policy document issued by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (India). This paper is written in light of five peda-gogical theories: a). Human Capital; b). Traditional Academic; c). Learner Centred; d). Social Efficiency; e). Social Reconstruction. By identifying the presence of the five theories in the policy and analysing the domi-nant ideologies of education across the whole text, the paper aims to explore the influence of pedagogical philosophies and the relevant factors on educational policy formation and upgrading in India. It discovers that although all five theories exist in the policy, Learner Centred theory is the most dominant. In addition, it also discusses political and socio-economic factors that impact the formation of the Indian educational policy.
