Under the National Education Policy, the Arunachal Pradesh government will focus on four thrust areas – Foundational Literacy and Numeracy, Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE), e-Governance and Digital Education, and Vocational and Teachers’ Education. Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu stated this at a function held in Itanagar to celebrate Teacher’s Day on Sunday. Mr. Khandu said, the National Education Policy is one of the biggest reforms ever in the education sector.
