Online Submission, Bangladesh e-Journal of Sociology v12 n1 p80-87 Jan 2015
In the present scenario academic achievement poses a big challenge to the educationist and psychologists everywhere. It is especially of great concern in India where population explosion, multi-cultural societies and an extraordinary rush for education has led to marvelous quantitative growth of education at all the stages without consistent quality growth. Albeit the needs, strength and interest of each learner are unique and determined by their socio cultural and demographic background and circumstances. The differences in academic achievement of students may be determined by this background. In this paper an attempt has been made to study the total educational achievement of the Gujjar and Bakerwal tribal students of Jammu And Kashmir State. The results clearly indicated that both the clans are still backward in their educational achievement, but the nomadic tribal Bakerwal Gotra and the Gujjar and Bakerwal tribal students of Kashmir division are still in a very poor educational situation than there counterpart Gujjars of Jammu.
