Participation of Muslim Families in the Education of Girl Child

Najma Amin (Author)
Synopsis Muslims are recognized as educationally backward at the national level. The programme of Action (POA-1986) identified 41 educationally backward district of Muslim population and envisages paying greater attention to the education of the socially disadvantaged groups (SC, St) women, and the minorities in the interest of equality and social justice. Muslims like any other community in India, tend to be influenced by the forces of orthodox conservatism and ongoing modernization process at the national and international level. As a result the education of girl child is also affected by these forces. Besides these the socio-economic status of parents also influence their education. Parents from various social class homes may differ in their nurturant and caring behaviour. The low income of parents affects the will to educate their girl child. Mounting economic pressure generally bring budgetary matter to the forefront which may keep any parent mentally preoccupied with financial issues, hence, low involvement in the education of their children. This book brings into the light various factors affecting the education of Muslim girl child and psychological and social aspects of parenting in relation to the education of Muslim girls.
