Inter-group inequality in education is a function of a complex web of factors. As the constraints to schooling are often interrelated and mutually reinforcing, they are therefore not always easily distinguishable. In this context, the challenge that lies ahead is to systematically disentangle the influence of underlying factors and to determine the contribution of individual factors to understand inequality between individuals and groups. Only then it would be possible to understand what actually determines educational inequality between different socio-religious groups and how the mechanism of inter-group inequality works. This chapter tries to uncover this mechanism. In order to understand the complexity, the analysis uses a multi-layered/multi-level analytical framework.

Keywords:   inter-group inequality, factors of inequality, head of household, educational inequality, individual factors
