Jain, A. K.; Sharma, A. N.
Education, Knowledge & Economy: A Journal for Education and Social Enterprise, v3 n3 p177-182 2009
Literacy is a powerful instrument to boost the economy in the form of providing positive attitudes and perceptions that can contribute to an improved daily life. Further, it plays an important role in determining the ecological condition, use and uptake of health-care facilities, awareness of different aspects of socio-religious and taboo practices and use of immunization and level of awareness. Interviews were conducted in 400 Baiga households from five different blocks of the Mandla district, Madhya Pradesh, India. The aim was to find out how education plays a role in determining the economic condition. The findings revealed that education has a direct impact on economic condition, because education changes the attitude and direction of thoughts of an individual. (Contains 4 figures and 2 notes.)
