Abstract: The educational scenario in tribal population of Andhra Pradesh is a cause of great concern and requires careful area based planning with all out efforts to improve adult literacy, universal enrolment and better retention. Non-formal education centers need to be established in tribal hamlets which do not have schools. It is also important to maintain contact, with the small number of girls who do reach high school to use them as models or other girls in the country. In order to tackle adult literacy, the government has started a number of adult literacy centers. Approximately 13% of the total Adult Education Centers in the State cater to the tribal population covering about 2032 villages/hamlets. The enrolment and retention rates continue at present level the problem of low literacy among tribal and lack of trained manpower as well as lack of awareness, poor health etc., which are associated problems, will be with them for the next two decades.
