Mishings are the second largest tribal group of Assam. Women constitute an important part in Mishing society and when women are educated it become a strong force for change. Without the development of these people, the development of Mishing tribe is a distant dream. Thus, education should be accorded a top priority in the tribal areas. Quality of performance has become the key factor for personal progress. Education helps in removing this evil and thus government are trying their best to remove this evil by giving basic education through established free education centers.

In this paper, an attempt has been done to understand educational status of the Mising women in Kekuri village of Dhemaji district, Assam and different problems associated in the way of attaining education.
