Jammu and Kashmir, the northern-most border state of India, is one the educationally backward states of the country. For educational upliftment of the children, several centrally sponsored schemes have been started in the state including Sarva Shiksha Abhiyaan (SSA) and Rashtriya Madhiyamik Shiksha Abhiyaan (RMSA), covering elementary and secondary education, respectively. The present paper seeks to understand the role of Jammu and Kashmir government in providing secondary education in the border district of Poonch which is situated in Jammu province close to the Line of Control (LoC) with Pakistan, through the Rashtriya Madhiyamik Shiksha Abhiyaan (RMSA) scheme. The paper would also analyze the challenges in its implementation and also suggest some measures for improving educational levels in Poonch.
