Education is the mirror of the society and is the seed as well as flower of the socioeconomic development. It transforms human beings from darkness to brightness of knowledge, from shades of social backwardness to light of social awarness and a nation from underdevelopment to faster social and economic development.

Now look at rural development part in that Education, economic development, physical and social infrastructure play an important role in rural development. Rural development is also characterized by its emphasis on locally produced economic development strategies. In contrast to urban regions, which have many similarities, rural areas are highly distinctive from one another.

Because of this, a wide range of rural development strategies are employed globally. The social and economic development of rural areas is the primary goal of rural development initiatives. In truth, many wealthy nations have robust programmes for rural development. The development of underdeveloped communities is the primary objective of rural government policy.

Rural development requires education that is regulated locally, functionally specialized, practical, applied, and problem-posing. It determines their needs, upholds their rights, and gives them more say in decisions that affect their lives. It also provides trained labour in rural regions, links the rural and urban economies, creates chances for employment and income, boosts labour force productivity, and fosters leadership.

Education has a desirable controlling influence over development of the rural individual, family, community, and society, leading to reduced poverty, income equity, and controlled unemployment. Education has a key role in rural systems of supply, production, marketing, personnel maintenance, education, health care, and governance.

Functions of education include imparting social change, improving individual social position and standard of living, activating participation in rural and cultural development, increasing critical abilities of rural people to diagnose their needs, assert their rights, and take greater control of decisions affecting their lives, providing trained manpower in rural areas, linking rural and urban sectors, providing employment and income opportunities, increasing labor force productivity, and developing leadership.

Rural development aims at finding the ways to improve the rural lives with participation of the rural people themselves so as to meet the required need of the rural area. The outsider may not understand the setting, culture, language and other things prevalent in the local area. As such, general people themselves have to participate in their sustainable rural development. Relevant, locally-controlled educational programs play key roles in rural development in developing nations.

Education oriented to urban rather than rural needs may do more harm than good by accelerating rural to urban migration, generating youth unemployment, and leaving students ill-equipped to succeed in a rural environment. As we educated from rural background we want to move away from that places and move towards urban area but as a educated person always tries to make that rural places as urban to live because development of rural area is biggest beneficial part of any country and education is the crucial ways to do it.
