This book examines social inclusion in the education sector in India for Scheduled Tribes, Denotified Tribes and Nomadic Tribes. It investigates the gaps between what was promised to the marginalized sections in the Constitution, and what has been since delivered.

The volume:

· Examines data from across the Indian states on Adivasi and non-ST students in higher, primary and secondary education;

· Analyses the success and failures of education policy at the central and state level;

· Brings to the fore colonial roots of social exclusion in education.

A major study, the volume will be of great interest to scholars and researchers of education, sociology and social anthropology, development studies and South Asian Studies.
