Should Girls Be Educated Or Not? | Share Your Opinion!

There is a contemporary saying which goes thus, “When you educate a boy, you educate a person but when you educate a girl, you educate a nation.”

The importance of girl child education cannot be overstated as educated women can better lead not just their own lives but that of their families, lives in the community, and the nation at large.

Educated women can better articulate and make constructive decisions that affect their lives and has ripple effects in society. Gone are days when women were left to assume that economic benefits will trickle down from the men.

Times have evidenced that men do not answer financially to women sponsored by the patriarchal patterns of society which enhance male dominance.

To curb this, while striving to completely eradicate all other social plaques, girl child education stands out as the most effective mechanism.

When priority is placed on girl child education, the benefits accrued are enormous.

However, the modern-day man says that educating a woman is not just a waste of scarce resources, investing in another man’s wife but a total zero value to family and economy.

The reasons are stated; she will marry and concentrate on her husband without exploiting full potentials, no matter how much education a woman gets, she will end up in the kitchen.

These are among the many justifications to shun girl child education.

What is your take on this subject matter? Is girl child education necessary?
