A study on attitude of literate Asur community people with the variation of gender and marital status regarding provision of education


Dr. Md. Afsar Ali

This paper is aimed to find out the relation of attitude towards education with the variation of gender and marital status among the literate Asur community, a particularly vulnerable aboriginal tribal community in West Bengal, India. A total of sixty numbers of samples from Cooch Bihar and Alipurduar districts, West Bengal were taken for this study. 1:1, face-to-face interview was conducted with an inventory containing 28 items covering seven dimensions of education, for data collection purpose. Descriptive as well as inferential statistics like ANOVA, ‘t’-test by applying Excel and SPSS-16.o software were used for data analysis. A significant difference between the attitude of the literate married male and that of the literate married female samples of Asur community people was found at 0.05 level. But for their unmarried counterpart this difference was found to be non-significant at the same level. This finding might be helpful to the policy planners, program designers and to the implementing agencies from the govt. or non-govt. authorities in devising provisions of education to this particularly vulnerable most primitive tribe of India.
