In this paper, I have explained a methodology to measure discrimination in education. It is the right of students to get an education free of discrimination. Gender, colour, age, social class, financial condition, and other factors all play a role in educational discrimination. The focus of this research is on educational discrimination based on social class and financial condition. “Higher Education has been considered as a site of knowledge, and it is a place, where one can pursue it. But, the distribution of knowledge and acquiring knowledge is controlled by various factors. For example, caste, class, language, region, religion, gender, race, etc. The two principal factors, i.e. language and caste, determine one's access and then survival in higher educational institutions.” In a world where education is frequently used to justify inequality, raising concerns about education-based discrimination as a social wrong may appear absurd. Those who have taught us not to perceive what has effectively become an elephant in our living room must be challenged. Otherwise, we will never be able to use our public educational systems to achieve universal freedom and empowerment.
