About Education (Schools)

Introduction

It is widely accepted that education is a key element to bring change in economic, social and cultural dynamics of a society. Education is the fundamental human right, a vehicle for human resource development, thus plays a vital role in the integrity & prosperity of a nation. Investment in education is relatively more productive with multifold returns. That is the valid reason why education is placed on first priority agenda of Government of AJ&K. Azad Jammu and Kashmir has limited economic resources and land holding is very small. There is little industrial activity due to accessibility problem and difficult terrain. Human resource development is the only field which can be emphasized for the income generation and livelihood of the people. Quality education and market oriented skills are the fields by which we can educate and train the younger generation for market oriented jobs. These educated and trained Human Resources can get jobs not only within the country but also in overseas.
