Education has gained a lot of importance and every developing economy has realized that in order to be in the league of developed nations, it will have to lay emphasis on the education system .With the notification of RTE act, it has become mandatory to enroll all children in the age-group of 6-14 years in the schools and provide quality education. No education policy should be static since it has to cater to the needs of the society at the given time but also keep pace with the changing technical, pedagogical, political, social, economic and linguistic concerns before the people, it is bound to show lapses to be taken care of failures to be our eye openers and pitfalls to be avoided in all future planning.
Sri Muktsar Sahib District has also made a lot of progress on the education front as well as sports.
