Parents accord less priority to girls education compared to boys. The main reason behind this is Gender bias. Parents believe that boy is their heir and spreads their clan. This very notion imbibes into children as father is the decision maker in the family. As marriage institution provides for the girl to live with husband's family, her parents take less care about her education. well educated girl needs to be married off to still better educated suitor, an expensive affair. Girls are engaged in taking care of their smaller siblings which obstructs their educational chances. In rural areas girls are married off at early ages, which prevents their education.
