河井, 由佳

The purpose of this paper is to clear current status and issues of women’s education in India. So, I have to clear the status in a state and a small area, more concretely. Then, I observe the status in rural area and perform a questionnaire survey by community residents and teachers in Birbhum, West Bengal. I will begin by taking a general view of Women’s Education in whole India. Next, I will consider about Women’s Education in Birbhum, West Bengal. This paper is based on the investigations conducted there from august 1 to 27. The result of analysis showed that problems of poverty and early marriage disturbed Women’s Education in rural area until these days. And there are differences by religion and Jaty (Caste). However, many mothers would like to make their daughters get enough education and understand that the status have developed comparing with the past. But there are still a lot of problems about the secondary education for girls. Teachers say that the policy and plans were also insufficient. The near future, many girls may continue to secondary education, so new issues would have come. In addition, considering the status of current women’s education in rural area, it is important to consider about adult education for women as well as a school education for girls.
