Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced  a new centrally sponsored scheme, as many as 14,500 schools will be “upgraded” across India to showcase the components of the National Education Policy, 2020

It was launched on 5th September 2022, on the occasion of Teachers Day.

It is under the Ministry of Education, the scheme will be called PM SHRI Schools :PM Schools for Rising India.

While there are exemplary schools like Navodaya Vidyalayas, Kendriya Vidyalayas, the PM SHRI will act as “NEP labs”.

What are the key features of National Education Policy(NEP)?

The school curricular structure and teaching style divided into various stages – foundational, preparatory, middle and secondary.

  1. New Curricular and Pedagogical Structure (5+3+3+4);
  2. The foundational years (pre-school and grades I, II) will involve play-based learning. At the preparatory level (III-V), light textbooks are to be introduced along with some formal classroom teaching. Subject teachers are to be introduced at the middle level (VI-VIII). Secondary stage (IX-XII) will be multidisciplinary in nature with no hard separation between arts and sciences or other disciplines.
  3. Setting up of a new National Assessment Centre, PARAKH (Performance Assessment, Review, and Analysis of Knowledge for Holistic Development);

What is a centrally sponsored scheme?

A centrally sponsored scheme is one where the cost of implementation is likely to split in the 60:40 ratio among the Union government and the states/Union Territories.

How will PM SHRI schools will be different from Kendriya Vidyalayas or Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas or other Central Government Schools?

Kendriya Vidyalayas or Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas are under Central Sector Schemes i.e fully funded by central government. While KVs largely cater to children of Union government employees posted in states and UTs, JNVs were set up to nurture talented students in rural parts of the country. But, PM SHRI schools will be upgrading the existing schools  which are run by the Centre, states, UTs and local bodies. This essentially means that PM SHRI schools can either be KVs, JNVs, state government schools or even those run by municipal corporations.

Which schools will be the PM SHRI schools come up?

The Centre has not yet released the list of schools that have been chosen for this purpose. It has however announced that the PM SHRI schools will also “offer mentorship” to other schools in their vicinity. These schools will be equipped with modern infrastructure including labs, smart classrooms, libraries, sports equipment, art room etc. It will also develop as green schools with water conservation, waste recycling, energy-efficient infrastructure and integration of organic lifestyle in curriculum.
