CHAPTER 1

1.1 BACKGROUND TO THIS STUDY.

“Education shines brighter than the sun” Education does not just remove ignorance; it also makes people aware, skilled, and productive. Education is now a fundamental need for everyone. Education is the key factor for development. Women’s active participation is essential for sustainable development. Donors and philanthropists offer benevolent (charitable) service in women’s education, mainly in backward communities (Mohit, 2019).

Education for women in education for girls, Both men, and women, are entitled to an education. It has been proven that women can only develop if they are educated at the same pace as men; This leads to peaceful coexistence (Essay by Mohit 2019).

Despite all the efforts made, women’s education in developing countries is still very low. Females’ literacy rates are lower than for males because females have fewer opportunities than males. They are often treated as boring and exhausting workers and cannot do well in school or college. Similar reasons are why female dropout rates and failure rates are high. Research by UNESCO shows that women with low education levels are the main causes of social backwardness and unsustainable development.

Indeed, an educated woman is not equal to an educated nation. Many studies have shown that well-educated children will do better in school. They will also be more likely to be sent to school regularly to study at a higher level. A mother who works in a local or cottage business may have a better standard for her household, and they can spend that money on the family. Women’s education is important for the smooth running of a family. Women who are educated have proven to be equal to men in all areas. (Reports by UNESCO/WBG).

True statement: A home is the first school for every child, and the mother is their first teacher; the mother must be able to take care of her child and nurse him. She teaches her child what to and not to do. A well-educated mother can provide a positive environment for her child’s growth and education. Education must be used for women’s empowerment and sustainable development (Mohit, 2019).

If they have the opportunity to learn and are given opportunities, women can accomplish as much as Cando. Education should be prioritized for all women today. Parents and wards need to be educated on the importance of education for their daughters and encourage them to save money for education instead. Women can be as skilled and educated as men when they are well-educated. Only when women are educated can discrimination against sex be eliminated and population growth control.

1.2 STATEMENT of PROBLEM

One hundred thirty million girls aged six to seventeen years old are not in school. Fifteen million primary school-age girls, half of whom live in subsaham Africa, will never be able to enter a classroom. The most important factor in determining whether a girl has access to education is poverty. Research consistently shows that girls who have multiple disadvantages, such as low income, poverty, living in remote areas, or with disabilities, are the most likely to be denied access to education. Access to education and the availability of a safe learning environment is also affected by violence. Boko Haram’s insurgency in Nigeria and Chibok girls is an example. It was reported that the girls were taken from their school and taken to unknown destinations. Only to find out that they were being used for sexual pleasure by the Boko Haram bugs, interest. It is also difficult to get married as a child. Children who are brides younger than married later are more likely to drop out of school and have less education; This could hurt their education, health, and ability to make a living. Another factor that can have negative consequences on female education is religion.

In some cases, religion has imposed an inferiority test on the girl child compared to the boy and limits how much the girl child can learn. Ethnicity is another issue. Some ethnic groups limit the education of a girl child because they believe that girls are fragile.

1.3 THE PURPOSE OF THE STUDY

  1. Find out how important female education is for children’s social development and well-being.
  2. To determine the problems associated with female education based on religions and traditions, violence, ethnicity, poverty, human trafficking, and other corrupt practices.
  • It is possible to trace the history and contributions of prominent female figures in history to the development of female education.
  1. To drive solutions to the problem of female education.

1.4 SIGNIFICANCE DURING THE STUDY

Every day, girls face barriers to education due to poverty, cultural norms, practices, poor infrastructure, and violence. To overcome these obstacles, the World Bank Group (WBG) has developed multisectoral approaches in partnership with governments, civil societies, organizations, multilateral organizations, the private sector, and donors. The World Bank Group (WBG), which works with women and girls, focuses on:

Conditional cash transfers, stipends, or scholarships are available.

– Reduce the distance to school

– To target bots and men in discussions about cultural and social practices.

– Promoting gender-sensitive curricula and teaching methods.

– Training and hiring qualified female teachers.
