Abstract:This research asks the following questions: what are the considerations that determine how parents and students from the Islamic community in Andhra Pradesh, a state in India, choose their schools; and what policy interventions might be made to increase the number of Islamic students pursuing advanced education in science and technology, which would allow them to enter modern high-paying prestigious jobs. The first part of this work focuses on the educational choices for Muslim children, some of whom attend religious schools, namely madrasas, which follow a syllabus based on religious tenets and theocracy rather than modern science. This type of education may be inadequate to equip the students with the skills required to enter the workforce. The initial analysis attempts to ascertain the causal influences that affect the enrollment of children in a religious or other school and their subsequent progression to higher and technical education. A framework is developed to model the flow of Muslim children into distinct paths that lead to different states of education and work levels. This model is then used to conduct an elasticity analysis to draw some policy lessons that may help in improving the enrollment of Muslim students in technical education. The model results showed a strong influence of initial school attendance at the primary education level on subsequent enrollment in technical education. These studies explore the factors that influence the attendance of children in primary and secondary schools. They also deal with the differences between the Islamic population and others in rural and urban settings, as well as investigating issues related to the different treatment of boys and girls in schooling decisions. This research culminates with a set of policy recommendations. It is seen that it is the economic hardship and not the religious beliefs due to which the enrollment of Muslim children is low. Policies are required to improve the socio-economic conditions of Muslims, besides addressing their felt needs. This will not only improve the attendance of Muslim children in schools, but will also facilitate their entry into higher and technical education and bring them into high-paying jobs.
