Dr. Bidyananda Borkakoty


Abstract: The tea industry of Assam contributes a lot to the national economy. The introduction of tea plantations in Assam dates back to British colonial rule. The Government of Assam has taken various welfare schemes for socio - economic upliftment of this community from time to time. Despite these schemes, the educational status of Tea Tribe community is very backward as compared with other communities of Assam. Attitudinal problem among parents towards education of their children may hinder the educational attainment of the tea - tribe community. The present study is an attempt to analyse the attitude of the tea garden workers towards higher education of their children in Golaghat District of Assam. The objectives of the present paper are - a) to analyse the level of education aspired by the tea garden workers for their children, b) to examine the attitude of parents (tea garden workers) towards higher education of their children, to examine whether there is significant difference in attitude of single parent (tea garden workers) and co - parents (tea garden workers) towards higher education of their children and to examine whether there is significant difference between literate parents and illiterate parents in respect of their attitude towards higher education of their children. 50 tea garden workers were taken as sample of the study. An attitude questionnaire was used as tool for primary data collection. It was found that 28 percent of tea garden workers showed favourable attitude and 72 percent of tea garden workers showed unfavourable attitude towards higher education of their children; there is no significant difference between single parent and co - parents; and between literate parents and illiterate parents in respect of their attitude towards higher education of their children.
