Education For All in India wholeheartedly welcome statement of Union Education Minister informing Parliament that National Council of Educational Research and Training will soon conduct the next NATIONAL ACHIEVEMENT SUVRVEY (NAS).
Unlike 2017 NAS, the next NAS will cover both the Private as well as Government schools which is a step in the right direction.
We have been demanding the same for long time to extend the coverage to Private schools.
Most likely the next NAS will be conducted by NCERT in November 2021, the last such survey was conducted on 13th November 2018 for classes III, V and VIII and for Class X in 2018. It is expected that NAS 2021 will be based on a sample of about 4 million students from across the Country.
