Kot Radha Kishen is the smallest Teshsil of Lahore division but has the 2nd highest literacy rate after Pattoki.
Kot Radha Kishen is a city and tehsil headquarters of Kot Radha Kishen tehsil in kasur district in the Punjab province of Pakistan. According to the educative perspective, the city is gaining popularity in promoting education among children and adults with the passage of time.

In the public sector, there are three separate public high schools for boys and girls, including Govt. High School No.1 for boys, Govt. High School Kot Sardar Muhammad Khan and a high school for girls. There are three Degree colleges in the city spreading education rapidly including 2 colleges for boys and 1 college for girls.Branches of various school like The Educators and Dar-e-Arqam are spreading the light of education. There is also a large number of private schools running all over in the city. This shows the love and devotion of the local people towards Education.
