The agro-based economy of the district, narrow earning options, lack of standard educational facilities, and lack of societal basis leading towards quality education are the major features of educational landscape of the area. While insufficient public facilities have been unable to cater to the growing population of the area, there has emerged a clear need for rigorous ventures on the part of civil society.
