SSA aims at useful and relevant elementary education to all
children in the age group of 6-14 by 2010. It also aims to
bridge all social, gender and regional gaps with the active
participation of the community.
At present 99.35% enrolment

Education has been achieved.
Secondary Education :-
A person with a mere 8 years of schooling will be as disadvantaged
in the knowledge economy as an illiterate person is in modern
industry and services.
Hence the district desires to build on a long-term perspective
for improving the quality of basic education up to class X
level and providing access to all children in the age group
of 6-16 to this level
