OVERCOMING BARRIERS TO GIRLS’ EDUCATION IN SOUTH ASIA
PDF File Size: 575 KB | Download   
The purpose of this study is to contribute to the achievement of education and gender-related goals of EFA and MDG in the South Asian countries by adhering to the framework of a rights-based approach; and to offer feasible policy options and/or tools for advocacy, as appropriate, for Ministries of Education of the region.
The analysis of documentary evidence for this study is informed by the need to investigate the barriers to girls’ education and gender equality in South Asian countries that UNICEF (2007) has outlined along with the investigation of more critical aspects as outlined by Heward (1999a, p.10) (see Section 2.3). For each country of the South Asia region the status of girls’ education has been described. Factors supporting as well as hindering girls’ education are explored through the study of available documents, most of which are internet based. The findings of the country analyses are then collated to map out the regional scenario of girls’ education. Recommendations of policy and/or other remedial measures to address the issues of barriers have been made, specific both to individual countries of the region and to the region as a whole.
