  • Patriarchy
  • Male dominated Society(property laws etc)
  • Female foeticide
  • Gender Inequalities
  • Fair  exploitation-leading to less enthusiasm among ladies to take up higher education
  • Early age Marriage of Girls
  • Orthodox Cultural Conditioning of girls being married off at certain age
  • High drop out rates in senior secondary due to priority to male child,if financial crunch
  • Reservation for females is less being mere 33%
  • Non inclusion of women in all decision making bodies of educational institutes

Can be the causes for higher male education,despite evidences showing the girl child being the smarter,in 10th,12th and university results.
