 His educational theory is relevant in respect of all round development of the child, compulsory education till 14yrs, lifelong and continuing education, vocational education, creativity, study of science and technology, literature etc. His main contribution relevant today is to prepare child for future life. Moreover, he gave importance to national integration, international integration, value education, formal and non-formal programs in rural and un-organised sector. Further, Sri Aurobindo suggested that the teacher should not only teach but suggest and organize the work, show children direction to responsibility and help them to find out inner guidance. Therefore, in the present day also the teacher should act as facilitator and guide. His concept of self-discipline facilitated the natural development. Sri Aurobindo also focussed upon the education of the heart apart from education of mind for the overall development of the child. Hence, his thoughts on education are quite relevant to the present day.

Therefore, with the serious problem of unemployed men and women, growing unrest among the student and witnessing the economic crises the re-orientation of the educational system on the spirit of Sri Aurobindo’s concept of education seems to be quite relevant and utmost need of the present day.
