MA Venkata Siva Reddy
The holistic development of any caste, creed tribe depends upon the educational achievement that particular group. In India both Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe people faced several socio-economic anomalies since historical times. For their welfare and development several initiatives were taken by both Union and State Governments since the adoption of democratic Constitution in 1950. Realizing the importance of education for their overall development special educational schemes and programmes were evolved. But even today their educational achievements were far behind other population. This is especially true in case of girls. Hence in this paper an attempt is made to analyze the present educational status of Scheduled castes and scheduled Tribes.
