The committee drafting the National Policy of Education 2019 received more than 55,000 pages containing over 1.28 lakh comments on the draft National Policy of Education 2019. The inputs they received are a wide range, in terms of content and complexity. Some of them are cursory superfluous comments, while some are complex papers written by academics suggesting alternative approaches to particular issues, for example teaching a language in a multilingual environment. The policy committee has formed a large team of people to read these responses, analyze them, determine what changes to the draft policy document they imply, and decide whether or not the policy should be changed accordingly.
