This chapter examines two challenges to promoting the right of education in India: economic and education policies, and the gender perspective used to justify a focus on women’s education. The capabilities framework is used to distinguish rights-based approaches to social development from the more conventional policy debates in the education sector. The application of the capabilities approach to arguments for the right to education is discussed.

Keywords:   women’s education, India, education policy, right to education, capabilities approach, neo-liberalism, literacy, female education deprivation
