Every committee on education and educational reforms has recommended particular stress on the natural interactions between culture and education. Far from constituting two parallel fields, culture and education are intimately intermingled and should be developed symbiotically, so that culture can infuse and nourish education.

The Centre for Cultural Resources and Training (CCRT) stressing the continuing need to train personnel in all areas of cultural and educational development and advocating the existence of culturally well trained personnel for stimulating the participation of the people at large in cultural life, organises Seminars on “Cultural Education in Schools’. The participants of the Seminars are mainly Principals and Headmasters, whose teachers participate in CCRT programmes and other administrators dealing with education in the States.
