Women's Education in Refugee Communities of Post-Colonial Bengal

Country India
Abstract The word education is inextricably linked with our way of life. Because education makes people's intellectual and cultural heritage creative and dynamic. This education organizes people's mind, intellect and taste.In Bengal after the partition of British India in 1947. The refugees, coming from the eastern part of the erstwhile province of Bengal, spread all over West Bengal and in other parts of India. Many refugee 'colonies', which were a novel and distinct spatial arrangement in the urban morphology, came up in the Calcutta region and almost all of these had a primary school. The study of these schools and the general role of education in these settlements will reveal complex socio-economic dynamic of a population trying to carve out a niche on a new terrain. On the other hand, the government, from time to time, came up with various policies to meet the pressing demands that this huge influx of people put on it. Education and training were crucial part of the post-Partition regime of rehabilitation of the refugees.
