Abstract
The Namasudra is a major scheduled caste group found in Assam, West Bengal, Orissa, Manipur, Tripura, Meghalaya, Mizoram and Arunachal Pradesh of India. This group of people are recognized as the socio-economically backward and enlisted in a schedule under scheduled caste category in our Indian constitution. Attitude of the human being has a great role in their life, which play as an internal force for all kind of development. It is found from the various study and observation that the Namasudra people living in both the states Assam and West Bengal are less conscious and having less favorable attitudes towards education in comparison to so called higher caste or general people, as a result their participation level in education is found very poor in comparison to many other communities. Again the participation level of Namasudra in Education in both the sates shows adiverse picture.The present study is an attempt to compare the development of education and to compare the attitude level of the community towards education among Namasudra in both the states. The study reveals that the Namasudra people living in West Bengal are more developed than the Namasudra in Assam. Again, the attitude level of West Bengal’s Namasudra is higher than the Assam.
