Caste is an inescapable aspect in terms of education in the Indian state, as it is in many other aspects of public life. Education standards have changed throughout the course of Indian history, but the subjugated Dalits, and particularly female children belonging to this caste, still face the hurdles of caste discrimination in society and in the education sector in particular. Despite introducing state education policies, the scale and size of these policies have not resulted in an increase in Dalit women participating in higher education. Like several other states, Andhra Pradesh (the focus of this book) has been undergoing checks and imbalances in terms of providing education. This book throws light on several issues pertaining to Dalit women and the social stigma they have been facing in dropping out from college education in the Warangal District of Andhra Pradesh.
