Following the National Policy on Education, the State Government brought out “A White Paper on Education” for the State in 1988 which was duly placed in the House of the Meghalaya Legislative Assembly. The White Paper laid down the "thrust areas" on some education sectors considered relevant to and of immediate need for the State. However at that time no Programme of Action was laid down as regards strategies and procedures for implementation. In pursuance of the State White Paper on Education, many concrete steps have been taken by the State Government, viz revision of curriculum and syllabus of school Education at all levels in accordance with the National Core Curriculum, adoption of Higher Secondary Education system at +2 stage, etc.
