The Faces of Global Education Part One-Women and ChildrenSeptember 15, 2018 7:08 am Leave your thoughts
Global Education is a Geo-political process; making the delivery of Education to all those that desire to improve themselves, provide for family and friends, or improve the world in which we live; is all about the money.
Education is the key to social change and prosperity. Money spent on Education is an investment, with an identifiable return, linked to a decrease in poverty, decrease in domestic violence, improving the health and welfare of people, which in turn creates jobs, and a better economy; producing more teachers, more classrooms, and more material, and more resources.
However, I am not going fool you or anyone, let’s talk straight up, and not be concerned with political correctness: the number one need for Education, is not only the money, it is also the money put to work in the right way.
One thing I can assure you, is that looking at Education on a global scale, and expecting it to be simple , and free of conflict… is like… expecting a bull to not charge at you because you are a vegetarian.
“Female Education” is a catch-all term of a complex set of issues and debates, surrounding education for girls and women. It includes areas of gender equality and access to education. When there is a discussion on the education of Women and Girls, a lot of people turn their heads waiting for a Political statement like to ones made on Fox News or CNN, when in reality the Statistics are clear about how many Women and Girls go to school, and there is truth in the social and family advantages of Women and Girls getting an education.
In many situations, poverty forces families to choose which of their children to send to school with boys often going; and Girls often missing out and made to stay at home, to look after siblings, and work on household chores.
When Women and Girls do attend Schools that don’t provide access to separate toilets, washing areas, and sanitary products can discourage girls who are menstruating from attending classes
Sometimes parents keep their children home because the commute to, and from school is unsafe and the risk of attacks on girls’ schools is a serious concern.
Early childbirth and marriage are other factors that contribute to girls missing out on an education. In cultures where these expectations are the norm, girls’ education by may be lower on a family’s list of priorities.
