Even today, in a state like Kerala, which is highly appreciated for its social development (especially in terms of education and growth of employment in tertiary sector), is inhabited with a group of communities identified as indigenous people subjected to abject poverty due to dependency on low-paid and degrading jobs which is of course a cause and result of educational deprivation. Even after several welfare and development programmes, this community still lies in the lowest rung of development. The benefits of welfare programmes are only reaching to some communities who are almost in the path of development. This research paper aims to analyse the inter tribe variation among three tribal communities of Wayanad (Paniya, Kuruma and Kattunaicka), with respect to their educational status and structural transformation in employment.

Abstract


Even today, in a state like Kerala, which is highly appreciated for its social development (especially in terms of education and growth of employment in tertiary sector), is inhabited with a group of communities identified as indigenous people subjected to abject poverty due to dependency on low-paid and degrading jobs which is of course a cause and result of educational deprivation. Even after several welfare and development programmes, this community still lies in the lowest rung of development. The benefits of welfare programmes are only reaching to some communities who are almost in the path of development. This research paper aims to analyse the inter tribe variation among three tribal communities of Wayanad (Paniya, Kuruma and Kattunaicka), with respect to their educational status and structural transformation in employment.
