Education Of The Girl Child:

Education Of The Girl Child

SAVE THE GIRLS AND EDUCATE THEM!:

SAVE THE GIRLS AND EDUCATE THEM! What would our country be like without women and girls? Who will take care of the family, carry generations forward and safeguard our culture? Real shame on Indians-if even being literate does’nt help. We surely are hypocrites. On the one hand we worship goddess Laxmi and Parvati while on the other we exploit and humiliate girls by keeping them away from education.

GIRL CHILD EDUCATION IN INDIA:

GIRL CHILD EDUCATION IN INDIA The Indian government has expressed a strong commitment towards education for all; however, India still has one of the lowest female literacy rates in Asia. In 1991, less than 40 percent of the 330 million women aged 7 and over were literate, which means today there are over 200 million illiterate women in India. This low level of literacy not only has a negative impact on women’s lives but also on their families’ lives and on their country’s economic development. Numerous studies show that illiterate women have generally high levels of maternal mortality, poor nutritional status, low earning potential, and little autonomy within the household. A woman’s lack of education also has a negative impact on the health and well being of her children. For instance, a recent survey in India found that infant mortality was inversely related to mother’s educational level. Additionally, the lack of an educated population can be an impediment to the country’s economic development. Education of girls and women in general has been a high priority with the Government of India . In the new millennium, India has consolidated its earlier educational reforms with increased resources and stronger policy commitments for achieving elementary education for all children, particularly girls.

Access to Education:

Access to Education Access simply means the right to education. It is also the opportunity provided for the girl-child to be educated. Access deals with the availability, convenience and ability to be educated. It is true that many governments make provision for the education of their citizens, but the provisions most of the time do not take cognizance of the peculiarities of the girl-child. In that case the girl-child may not have access to education, which is a fundamental human right.
