Author(s): Dr. Ranjan Kumar Biswas
Abstract: In this article, an attempted is made to highlight the reasons which are helpful to change the educational scenario of Korku tribe in a particular area of Madhya Pradesh. Previously, Korku tribal groups were situated in a very vulnerable condition and as a result, they were enlisted in the list of scheduled tribes. The purpose of such scheduling was astonished to give them special benefits under various Government schemes for their educational as well as socio-economic improvement. Establishments of enormous number of Government schools with infrastructural facilities such as availability of school building, proper sitting arrangement, teaching and non-teaching staff, free service of books, stationary and uniform, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, mid-day meal, hostel and stipend facility, etc. attract the children to participate in formal education system. Beside these, different tribal development schemes, control of population growth, increasing out-migration, decreasing livestock, effect of media and other factors play a great role to inspire tribal children for achieving education which change the overall educational scenario of Korku tribal groups.
