The Tribal Communities occupy a unique position in Indian Society. Being the earliest inhabitant of the country, they have for centuries maintained a distinctive life style. Unfortunately, their isolation has kept them out of the mainstream of the nation and made them easy pray to exploitation. The central and state governments have launched several programmes of special assistance for the educational development of the tribals, but there is always a problems of regular attendance in backward taluka of Gujarat. The position of girls education in chhota Udepur is worst of Secondary School tribal girls of Gujarat. The Schools running by Social Welfare Department and Pachhatvarg Seva Mandal Carry the message of behaviour change to the students. On the strength of empirical evidence she infers that the present education system fails to deal with the problem on the idiom of distributive Justice. She says that the benefits of present educational system have been mostly cornered by the tribal elites and higher income groups. The masses of tribal living in the interior parts, do not have any substantial access to the educational benefits. The author argues that some alternative model of education should be developed which could help the tribal girls to seek their incorporation in the regional and mainline civilization.
