Education is widely perceived as the great liberator of the mankind and the supreme force for social progress. Quality education is the vital factor for achieving social justice. The major challenges of contemporary educational system are to address the issues related to gender inequality in the social systems. The deeply rooted social believes perpetuates unequal treatment of girls and boys in schools. Schooling represents a "culture of power" which create a culture of silence to the extent that they mirror unjust social relations that exist in the larger society. Teachers' unconscious biases, negatively influence children self confidence and thereby affect their potential abilities in classrooms. Our school should ensure an education system which allows all individuals, irrespective of gender, to develop their capabilities and freedom. Thus schools and teachers at all levels have a key role to play in developing a gender-sensitive future generation. Schooling should strengthen equity and justice in the entire process of teaching and learning thereby ensures a peaceful and sustainable world. Hence the scope of this research paper is to enlighten the perception of teachers on gender bias as an impediment in achieving equity and inclusion and also their perception on promoting social justice in schools.
