Prof. Ruprekha Verma in her presentation on New Education Policy 2015 said that more than half of the population of our country is based on students while policies are made by selected people which are benefiting only few people. She criticized the closure of government schools and the financial aid which is given to private institutions in the name of 25% reservation through RTE. She said that through this financial aid Government should develop public school. She added that new education policy should not include political ideology rather it should be based on constitutional values.
