Education has a desirable controlling influence over development of the rural individual, family, community and society that leads to reduced poverty and controlled unemployment. As more than half of the population in India lives in villages, therefore the education system in rural area also plays a significant role in national development. In India, condition of rural education is still improving, the conditions of these rural schools is still very poor. So, the present study was conducted to study the problems faced by higher secondary school teachers of rural areas of Valsad district. A lot of effort is being made in educating the Rural India. But a lot more still needs to be achieved to ensure high literacy rate in rural India. The finding of the study shows that most of the students are coming to the school but they are not motivated by their parents to take quality education and higher education. There is gender discrimination prevailing in villages and people still hold blind beliefs. The most of the teachers find difficulties in providing education to the below average students. The most of the teachers are not getting local support for providing awareness of importance of education. The people in rural areas are not much concerned about girl’s education. The most of the teachers had revealed that students from rural areas are not ready to learn subjects like English, mathematics and science. The teachers of rural areas had also stress of providing quality education to their own children. Therefore to spread awareness among the rural people about the need and significance of education more efforts have to be taken by the government, educated youth of urban towns and cities, teachers, young scholars etc.
