|Title||School Education of Scheduled Tribes in India|
The scheduled tribes constitute a sizeable, but backward section of the population in India. Educational backwardness of the scheduled tribes is one of the social concerns in the country. They lag behind the rest of the population in the country in the matter of literacy attainment. Non-enrolment in school and drop out from school without completing education are serious issues of the schooling of tribal children in the country. Another issue is the gender inequality in the schooling of tribal children. There has been steady improvement in the schooling of tribal children during the last two decades. Despite this positive trend and the special programmes for tribal education provided by the government, scheduled tribes continue to be backward in education. Many more special programmes and strategies are required to deal with the educational problems of the scheduled tribes.
