Abstract: In this paper we study the space $ \mathcal{Z}_k(G/P, r[X_w])$ of effective $ k$-cycles $ X$ in $ G/P$ with the homology class equal to an integral multiple of the homology class of Schubert variety $ X_w$ of type $ w$. When $ X_w$ is a proper linear subspace $ \mathbb{P}^k$ $ (k<n)$ of a linear space $ \mathbb{P}^n$ in $ G/P \subset \mathbb{P}(V)$, we know that $ \mathcal{Z}_k(\mathbb{P}^n, r[\mathbb{P}^k])$ is already complicated. We will show that for a smooth Schubert variety $ X_w$ in a Hermitian symmetric space, any irreducible subvariety $ X$ with the homology class $ [X]=r[X_w]$, $ r\in \mathbb{Z}$, is again a Schubert variety of type $ w$, unless $ X_w$ is a non-maximal linear space. In particular, any local deformation of such a smooth Schubert variety in Hermitian symmetric space $ G/P$ is obtained by the action of the Lie group $ G$.
