Patte Education Trust provides formal education to children of daily wagers and farmers in Puttur area. There are 3 schools now, one until 8th, second is 8th- 10th and the thirds if from 10th to 12th. Local community contributes a small amount to the school. Parents prefer to send their childred to this school because they think that it is more regular and teachers are more engaged.
