  3. 3.  Education is very important for every child whether boy or girl. It is sad that some communities still discriminate against the education of the girl child.  Girl’s education is the need of the hour. Without educating the girls of the country we can't hope for a developed nation.  Girls education is like sowing the seed which gives rise to green, cheerful, and full grown family plant.  It is said that if we educate a man, we educate a man only, but if we educate a woman, we educate the whole family. This highlights the importance of female education.

HISTORY OF INDIAN GIRLS EDUCATION  The history of female education in India has its roots in ancient Vedic age.  Women's employment and education was acknowledged in 1854 by the East India Company's Programme : Wood's Dispatch.  In 1878, the University of Calcutta became one of the first universities to admit female graduates to its degree programmes.
  5. 5. IMPORTANCE OF GIRL’S EDUCATION  EDUCATED FUTURE GENERATIONS : By sending a girl to school, she is far more likely to ensure that her children also receive an education.  DECREASE INFANT MORALITY : Children of educated women are less likely to die before their first birthday.

  9. 9. ESSENTIAL STEPS TO BE TAKEN Low-cost and flexible timetables : Basic education should be free or cost very little. Also, school hours should be flexible so children can help at home and still attend classes. Schools close to home : Many parents worry about girls travelling long distances on their own. Parents and community need to be fully convinced of the importance of education and motivated to send their children,particularly their daughters to school. Providing women with literacy and vocational training for income generation. Community leaders and extant groups should fully and actively support this cause.

It broadens her outlook and makes her aware of her duties and responsibilities. The progress of a country depends on girls’ education. So, girls’ education should be encouraged.
