CHAPTER ONE

1.0 INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

The term ‘girl-child’ refers to a female between the ages of 6-18 years (Mukhtar et al., 2011). The National Child Welfare Policy (1989) as cited by Ada (2001) defines the girl-child as a female below 14 years of age. Offorma (2009) defines it as a biological female offspring from birth to eighteen (18) years of age. This period is made up of infancy, childhood, early and late adolescence stages of development. The girl-child is seen as a young female person who would eventually grow into a woman and marry. The gender apartheid places the girl-child in a disadvantaged position, where her potentials are suppressed and self-actualization is not achieved. She therefore, becomes a victim of a pre-existing socio-cultural male chauvinism. Furthermore, on the account of gender, girl-children are subjected to all multiple forms of oppression, exploitation and discrimination.

        Girl-child education has then become a major issue of concern in most developing countries of the world today, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, where a large number of young girls do not attend school. According to UNICEF (2007), as cited by Grace (2010), the global figure for out-of-school children is estimated to be 121 million, out of which 65 million (approximately 53.8%) were girls and over 80 percent of these girls live in sub-Saharan Africa. Primary school completion rates in Africa have been the lowest in the world and this remains a concern as half of the world’s out-of-school children (OOSC) are concentrated in 15 countries, eight of which are in subSaharan Africa (Ibrahim, 2012). In sub-Saharan Africa, the number of girls out of school each year has risen from 20 million in 1990 to 24million in 2002 (Offorma, 2009).

        Also, according to Goodluck (2011), Nigeria has 9 million (37%) out-of-school children, which is more than 0ne-third of its primary school age children and this is the highest in Africa. Nigeria grapples with increasing number of out-of-school children annually. This trend varies from zone to zone. For instance, in South Eastern Nigeria, which is dominated by the people of Igbo ethnic group, there is however low boy-child enrolment in school as compared to girls. This is because the boy-children are sent for apprenticeship in trading which is the dominant occupation of the people. The opposite is the case in Northern Nigeria where there is low girl-child education as compared to boys. Nigeria is among the West African countries that have the highest number of girls that are out of school, and more than 75% of the 3.4 million children out of school are girls (UNICEF, 2007).

1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

Girl child education is one of the most discussed topics in Nigeria today. Most of the discussion is based on the fact that the female gender are not getting equal right in the society in terms of quality education; reason being that the female child will eventually get married and won’t contribute to the family. Secondly, there have been series of study on the girl child education but not even a single study has been carried on the thematic study of girl child education
