Hint: The Preamble is considered to be the spirit and backbone of the Constitution. The Preamble underlines the main objectives which a Constitution is intended to achieve.

Complete Answer: The Preamble is a document with which a Constitution begins. A sort of preface, a declaration of the objectives, which the framers of the Constitution cherish. It embodies the principles on the basis of which administration of the country is run. The hopes and aspirations of the framers of the Constitution can be seen through its preamble.
The concept of Preamble as envisaged in our Constitution is borrowed from the Constitution of the United States of America. ‘Sovereign, Socialist, Secular, Democratic, Republic, Justice, Liberty, Equality and Fraternity’ are the keywords mentioned in the Preamble.
Now let us examine the options -
Option A – The Preamble mentions the provision of justice, social, economic and political at the beginning of the Constitution.
Option B – Education to men and children is not mentioned in the Preamble at the beginning of the Constitution.
Option C - The Preamble also mentions the provision of liberty of thought, expression, faith and worship at the beginning of the Constitution.
Option D – Such a provision has always been the motto of India and is also mentioned at the beginning of the Preamble.
Thus, the correct answer is option (B).

Note: Indian Constitution also begins with a Preamble like all other Constitutions of other States. In simple terms, it is an introduction to the Constitution. An index to the social and political structure of the society, hence it is also called an ‘index of the Constitution’.
