Girls’ education in India: A multilevel exploration of the relationship of capabilities on enrollment, attendance and learning levels

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Despite substantial gains in girls’ education since the 1960s when attention was first directed to the issue, women and girls worldwide continue to remain under-represented in education relative to men in the first decade of the twenty first century (Unterhalter, 2008). This paper uses the Capability Approach (Sen,1999) to demonstrate that girls’ education can be better explained if we take into account social opportunities available at the household and district levels rather than only income or SES levels. Results from multi-level modeling show that capabilities at both household and district-levels are positively correlated with girls’ enrolment, attendance and learning levels. Implications for improving girls’ education focus on the need to address education holistically rather than in isolation of girls’ circumstances.
