Exploring School-Community Linkages

Edward A Rodrigues Tribal Education for Community Development by Rudolf C Heredia; Concept Publishing Company, Bombay, 1992; pp 247, Rs 300. FORMAL education has always been perceived to have a crucial impact on the development of tribal communities in India. Much evaluation of this effort, however, has restricted itself to the quantitative spread of education in tribal areas. Various agencies involved in this effort seem to operate on a tacit assumption, that formal education is beneficial for the tribal community The author of this study, however, critiques such an assumption emphasising rather, that the formal school certainly needs a greater degree of sensitivity towards the tribal community if it must prove to be truly beneficial to them.
