Educational HistoryEdit

The social reform movements, missionary work, drinking places, and service of the ground clerk are all factors that contribute to the educational activities of the Perambra block in the early stages. A board school was established in Perambra as a result of the activities of the Basel Mission. Groundbreaking schools, mosques and monastic schools existed in Cheruvannur, Nochat, Kayanna, Koothali, Changaroth and Perambra. Growing up in the traditional tradition of indigenous medicine, astrology, carpentry, veterinary medicine, music and dance, informal education contributed to social development. As colonial education began to proliferate, informal and traditional education became a setback. The activities of the Malabar District Board have expanded and formal educational institutions have emerged. The oldest school on the block was the Muipotpol ALP School, established in 1860 at Muipotpot in Cheruvannur. During the period when the caste system was rampant, the Pancham schools, which were set up for the Harijans in the villages of Perambra and Cheruvannur, did not work for many social reasons. The lower castes have been admitted to public schools as part of the agitations against the caste system and practices of untouchability. The schools started from 1944 in the settlement area of Chakkitapara. Many prominent individuals on the block are educational work
