  Before the middle of the nineteenth century only the indigenous system of education existed in the Jind District. The indigenous schools were of different types e.g. pathsala dharamsala, chatsalas and maktabs. Special religious instruction was given in pathasalas., dharamsala where pupils where mainly brahman boys. In chatsalas padhas (Teacher) taught Mahajan boys to read and write  lande and to learn accountiong. The maktabs were the person or Arabic school & were of two kind, the one where only the kuran  was learnt and the other where Arbic was taught. The method in these indigenous schools were crude and pupils were subjected to monotonous repetitive oral drill and loud recitation for hours.


          No serious efforts were made by the princely state authorities till the close of 19th century when a few upper primary and vernacular middle schools were opened at Jind, Safidon & Narwana. These schools were later remodelled  on Punjab educational system but  there was hardly any progress. In 1950-51 there were just seven high Schools, 14 Middle Schools and 64 Primary Schools. Before Independence, education of girls remained neglected and was also looked upon with disfavour. Whatever little, the girls were taught was confined to religious instruction. In 1950-51 , there was only one high school for girls at Jind and 3 Primary Schools for girls, 2 at Jind and one at Narwana. Things started changing there after & more attention was paid to education & 1955-56, there were 11 high schools (10 boys & 1 girls), 23 middle schools (20 boys & 3 girls) & 191 Primary schools (179 boys & 12 girls). However, there was no college in the Distt. The first college in the distt was opened at Jind in 1960 and another at Narwana in 1966-67. On the formation of Haryana there were two colleges, 26 High schools, 42 Middle schools and 206 Primary schools in the Distt.
