RETHINKING THE NIGERIAN PHILOSOPHY OF GIRL CHILD EDUCATION POLICY AND IMPLEMENTATION IN CURBING SOCIETAL PROBLEMS
This paper aims to analyze the philosophy of girl-child education policies, including those in Nigeria and clarifies some misunderstandings and ambiguities about what it means to educate girls by assessing the policy's strengths and weaknesses as a whole. Before fully examining girl child education in Nigeria, Nigeria's policies on girl child education, factors working against girl child education in Nigeria, and how Nigerian educational policies have helped promote girl child education in Nigeria, it began by outlining the reasons why girl children should be educated. In the northern region of Nigeria, cultural awareness of the value of girl child education has been lost, leaving the general public ignorant of the poor state of education. The paper argues that a country cannot thrive without enabling girls to pursue education. Many factors, including sociocultural and illiteracy issues, have played a role in this. The paper contends that educating women and girls is a crucial step toward improving any country's efficacy and efficiency. They recommend that immediate advocacy for the value of girls' education in Nigeria is required. In conjunction with private businesses, state governments, civil society organizations, leaders of various communities, and international development organizations, advocacy and sensitization are required.
