Indian society has been subjected to a variety of socioeconomic changes brought about by numerous legislative and constitutional efforts. The social fabric and economic structure of Indian society have been altered by the constitutional requirements of a democratic government and the policy of affirmative discrimination. However, Indian society is extremely stratified, with many obvious discrepancies across socioeconomic groups. As a result of this stratification, obvious inequities have emerged among various social groupings. This age-old social stratification is the outcome of the existing caste system, which has isolated SCs, STs, and OBCs from the rest of society to the point where they have been denied even fundamental human necessities and rights that are essential to ensure one’s bare existence in the past. Indian society is complex in a way that no other of the world’s great civilizations can match. Indian culture has a greater ethnic and linguistic diversity than any other nation. Tribal development has been at the centre stage of the government since independence. There have been challenges in achieving the desired pace of development among tribal people. Education is a driving force, and no civilization could flourish without educating its people. Since the attainment of independence, the government has taken several initiatives, schemes and programmes and allotted funds to different plans to spread education among the tribals. No doubt all these efforts are significant and highly appreciable, but despite all these efforts, the growth rate of education among the tribals and particularly among the tribal girls is very sluggish. Representation of tribal girls in higher education does not meet its expected level. The present attempts to examine the status of education among tribal and find out gaps in their educational development in Uttar Pradesh.
