Savitribai Phule started a wave of change in the modern era of numerous sectors of education, hence her ideas and principles should be implemented into education. She made an effort to overthrow the society’s predominately usual educational system and aspired to rebuild it as a free and open system for everyone. This investigation uses a qualitative methodology based on historical research. The researcher chooses to conduct his investigation using the historical study methodology. Secondary data as well as primary data have both been utilised in this study. Within the system of public education, her ideals and principles are acceptable.
