Problems of Education of Scheduled Tribes and Scheduled Castes: A Case Study in Kolkata and Surroundings and Medinipur and Surrounding Areas
Ghosh, Bhola Nath
Online Submission, US-China Education Review B 1 p98-104 2011
Education is an important aspect of human resource development. Imparting of education leads to the improvement of understanding, perception, attitude and efficiency of working population. Education has been considered as a lever to raise one's position in the society as well as a tool to fight against poverty and ignorance. Since the independence of India, several constitutional measures have been taken for educational enlistment of the SC (scheduled castes) and ST (scheduled tribes). Though educational achievement is open to all, it is not smoothly achievable as have been felt by the students. This paper highlights some of the constraints faced by SC and ST communities and it asks for urgent attention of the planners and policy makers to eradicate the constraints of the students of SC and ST. If this cannot be done, at least some discussion to draw attention to the fact may bring the issue at large. The main feature of the study is that it is based on empirical data. But the focus of the study is to show the problems of education of SC and ST. (Contains 5 tables.)
