Book Description

This book is an in-depth analysis of the educational development of tribals in India. Education as Development: Deprivation, Poverty, Dispossession is a significant new addition for understanding educational and economic setbacks experienced by the marginalized in India.

The volume:
• Focuses on how the social, economic and education systems have evolved over time in India and identifies the scope of development in these areas;
• Provides a rational structure for readers to understand how the Adivasi in India can be made to fit in the modern designed education system;
• Highlights the problems of the marginalized – such as income inequality, education, health, housing, governance, civil society environment and infrastructure and others which hampers their overall growth.

This book will be of great interest to students and researchers and policy makers in the fields of education, minority studies, indigenous studies, sociology of education, and South Asian studies.
