According to Bacon “Reading maketh a full man; writing an exact man and conference a ready man.”
Education is very important tool for everyone to succeed in life and achieve something different. It develops confidence and helps building personality of a person. School education plays a great role in everyone’s life.

Education liberates a man’s mind from wrong thinking, ignorance, superstitions and prejudices. It frees him from evil influences and vices. It equips him with knowledge and skill, enabling him to make a good living, culminating in his being an ideal citizen.
For the Society:
H.L. Wayland has correctly said, “Universal suffrage, without universal education, would be a curse.” For the success of any democracy, education is a must. The foundation of the society is based on education since it brings economic and social prosperity. Development of any country depends hugely on the education standard available to its citizens. Education will help in eradicating poverty in our country to a great extent. With the spread of education, gone are the days of bonded labour, child labour, economic slavery, pangs on account of being an untouchable and being misled by black magic.

People living in backward areas and lower strata of the society still don not have much access to education. However, some new and effective strategies has been planned and implemented by the government to resolve the problems in such areas.
