This module will introduce you to the main concepts and issues related to gender equality and education. This module was developed because of the importance of education in the life of a child. Education enables a child to grow and develop on a personal level, acquiring the skills, knowledge and attitudes that are crucial to living a fulfilling life. In addition to benefiting the individual child, education also benefits the learner’s family, community, and country. It is therefore critical that we strive to provide equal access and opportunities in education for every child, benefiting girls and boys equally.
