        The highest problem for a State is that of education of its people. It may ensure their safety by ever vigilant protection and their material prosperity by wise agricultural or fore-sighted trade policy, but without proper education these at their very best would make them little more than a mere community of healthy well-fed animals.

        His Highness being a scholar and an educationist himself has all along been conscious that it is education with its resulting culture which breathes the soul in the various activities of a State, and consequently maintains his Education Department at a very high cost never grudging the money that he spends on it.

        H. H. believes that architectural strength with its necessary concomitant sanitary make-up plays an important part in the formation of school atmospherics, enhances aesthetic ideas and stabilizes sanitary principles. With this in view and under a large civilizing program of providing educational facilities at the very door of each and every subject of the state, type plans of village schools have been prepared and for towns, capacious buildings marking the individuality of each town are being constructed.

         Under the program, even the smallest village will have a primary school costing about Rs. 10,000.

         At Sultanpur, Khokhri and Paneli, villages with populations ranging from 2000 to 4000 persons, vernacular schools containing 11 rooms with a central hall costing about Rs. 90,000 have been constructed, and according to the program every village containing the above population is going to get the same type of the school building.

        The scheme of introducing gardening in every school has been successful and nice gardens have been seen to be attached to them. Many of the schools have gained the Shree Bhagvatsinhjee gold and silver medals for agriculture.
