Why is discrimination in education often based on gender?

This is due to the treatment of women as housewives who do not need education. In virtually all developing countries, women are less educated than men. 66 out of 108 countries have 10% less enrollment in primary and secondary education for girls than for boys. Discrimination in access to education based on gender is especially severe in the poorest countries and in the Middle East and North Africa regions. The severity of this problem is not limited to the inequality of women. Convincing evidence has been obtained that discrimination against women in education not only increases social inequality, but also becomes a brake on economic development.

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
