Tribal education in India: Government initiative and challenges
Ashok Kumar Digal
It is proved that education is the sole means to establish peace and brotherhood in the world. India is a land of a multitude of culture, religion, language and races. Tribal community in India constitutes a small portion of the total population with their indigenous culture, language and their unique lifestyle. Tribal people in India are marginalized, underprivileged and deprived in some way or the other. They are still not able to relish the fruits of modernization and technological development. Only education could enable them to cast off their mold of oppression of centuries and bask in the sunshine of socio-economic development. With the help of education they can empower themselves and build confidence and courage to overcome the Our constitution laid down various provisions for uplift of tribal communities but still they are confronted with various challenges. Despite several initiatives taken by the Government to enhance educational status ever since independence, the literacy rate among Schedule Tribes has remained low. Objective of this paper is to analyze the status of tribal education and the government initiatives to promote education among tribal and the challenges faced by the tribal to achieve education.
