Department of School Education and Literacy (DSEL) Information

Education is the word that has the highest value, it has changed the perspective of people to see the world. Through this, they bring changes in their life and the other people lives who surround them.

There is a quote which is like this, ” Education does not mean teaching people to know that they don’t know, it means teaching them to behave as they do not behave”. Education is not about briefing something it is more than that, it teaches us how to interact? how to adapt? how to compromise? how to understand ourselves and much more.

There is beauty in the world those who have value education will see and understand it. Knowledge is vast in this world, it is the thing that starts with us and ends with us and education is the tool through which we can understand it or see it.

India is a vast country that has a diversity of cultures and languages. Providing an education that is uniform in nature is one of the hard tasks.
