We investigate the relationship between parent's education and children's education in the presence of deprivation in developing countries. The aim is to contribute to the evidence on the important factors in the intergenerational transmission of education. The deprivation index constructed comprises of child mortality, school attendance, cooking fuel, sanitation, drinking water, electricity, housing, and assets. Our findings show a strong relationship between being deprived and the intergenerational correlation of education. This relationship is a little stronger for women as compared to the men.
