CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

Education is a process through which an individual acquires knowledge, skills and abilities, which enable him/her to positively contribute towards the meaningful development of the society for the betterment of the country at large. Education is the mind and it encourages learners to concentrate on true and lasting values.

Education is a tool for both social and culture. Education enables individuals to develop abilities, attitudes and acquire the norms and values of the society. Education is the gateway to knowledge and development for the individual and the nation. It is best legacy that parents can leave for their children and it is the most valuable possession that a person or individual can ever acquire, there has been a growing concern about women education in both private and public circle. The women occupy a central position or place in the home, community, nation they have the highest percentage of the total population of the world.

When the first child is a female, the parents are not happy; it even comes to the worst when they are all female children (girls). The father (husband) goes about looking for a male child, this will then lead the man (father) to practice or involve in polygamous home which he never intended to practice.

This over-emphasis that the value of the male (boy) child in the African context. The women here protested their commercialization or their being made consumer objects. They claimed that the male have the resources and accelerated that their social economics political and educational status and further affirmed that their male counterpart misallocated these resources. Women were largely exhausted from many place in policy making and other important position in public or private sectors. In post independence period in many developing countries Nigeria inclusive, education was given to both men and women as a might to facilitate the developing process, women an contribute to a national development if they are educationally empowered.

According to Allian (1959) women have always been regarded as weak vessels but they have in recent time refused the leg in a terms of education, she said that women have confessed that they have overcome self-defect and mediocrity due to their exposure to educational world instead of being a burden or a liability to their husband, they will support and help the family to achieve greater height and their children have more opportunity to be a literate than those of non-educated people which will help to increase the growth and development of the society and the country at large.

With education, women can participate in any field politically, socially, economically, religiously and so on. In politics for instance which was almost dominated by man (male child) is now being appreciated by women that marned, women, because they are educated and can fully participate to the growth and development of the Nigeria economy by being a patrician.

Malan Kauta (1982) said that what a man can do, a woman can do it better as well. Apart from bringing up children in the right manner so that they can match or fit with the present day society, educated women have the chance and ability to contribute their talents, skills and knowledge in task of national economic revival for the country growth and development.

The educated women is better and more useful as house wife and a mother, neighbor and citizen community mobilizes and social workers and even a good philanthropist, we must therefore encourage the young girls (female children) and women with necessary attitude to benefit from the fruit of education not merely for their own self improvement but for the rapid growth and development of the Nigerian economy.
