A Study On The Impact Of Education In The Tribal Sector Of West Bengal And Its Contribution To Social Development

Suvendu Sar, Dr. Kajol Kanti Ghosh.


One of the most important components of any civilization, education is essential for the growth of the individual. It serves as a tool for raising standards of living and achieving a long, healthy life. Only 58.96% of Indian tribal people are literate, which is much less than the country's total literacy rate. The focus of the current study was on West Bengal's need for tribal development. West Bengal's overall literacy situation is unsatisfactory. Finding out the changes in literacy and educational level of tribal pupils in various West Bengal districts is the main goal of the research project. The harsh truth is that indigenous students continue to lag behind in many areas and must overcome numerous obstacles, despite numerous constitutional provisions and programmes for the trials. The ability to learn is a key factor in changing the cultural norms and lifestyles of tribal pupils, as well as their attitude and ability to become economically independent. It has been acknowledged that education is a crucial component in tribal students' growth. This essay's goal is to explore how education affects tribal communities and how it contributes to the social development of tribal sector of West Bengal. The material used in the current work was obtained exclusively from secondary sources, including the West Bengal and India Censuses of 2001 and 2011, as well as other related academic studies. According to the study's findings, education benefits tribal students.

Key words: Tribal community, Education, Policies, Social development, Educational Achievement.
