The life standard of a nation can be assessed from the quality of education of that country. Female represent half of population of Pakistan. Therefore the importance of female education cannot be neglected by Pakistan. From last two decade Pakistan has strongly stressed on increasing ratio of educated female. In this regard new girls’ schools were established, infrastructure along with well qualified teachers has been provided to encourage female toward education. Even then the country is running short of government schools in urban as well as rural area. Tehkal Bala one of the renowned village of district Peshawar, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is also facing problems in imparting education to female. The village is situated in core of Peshawar. Being nearest village to university of Peshawar, it is assumed that Tehkal Bala will be a village wherein maximum opportunity for education is available. However the study revealed that the situation of female education in the area is similar to far flung villages located in urban area of the country. The study was accomplished through unstructured interview and observation method. Opinion of parents, teachers and students were taken through unstructured interview. The study exposed prominent issues that were responsible for lower female education rate in the area.
