IMPORTACE OF GIRL-CHILD EDUCATION

Girl-child education has been a problem and often given minimal attention in some rural and urban areas of the country. Whether a girl should be educated or not is an unresolved issue in the latex of most cultures in Nigeria with disparities between the education that boys and girls receive.
The current female literacy rate (ages 15 and above) in the country is put at 59.4 percent a figure less than the male adult literacy rate of 74.4 percent. The girls phenomenon is a less attentive issue especially their welfare and role in nation building.
Some experts have identified socio-cultural patterns, religious misconceptions, poverty, teenage pregnancy and early marriage as factors militating against girl-child education. 
Girls in Nigeria are often seen moving around in towns and villages and hawking items of paltry value that hardly justifies the hours spent in the burning sun. Sometimes they become vulnerable to harassment from men.
The parents of the girl child especially the mother consider their daughters as a tool for generating incomes to the family due to poverty and illiteracy instead of sending them to school at their tender age.
Nigeria is one of the countries listed amongst the developing nations, this is so because of her inability to harness her resources towards nation building in other sensitive areas that need special attention like the girl-child education.
