Women education: problems and implications for family responsibility

  • Abdulrasaq O Oniye University of Ilorin, Nigeria


The writer examined education in the context of its availability for the women folk. The paper also elucidates the problems of women education, and the implications of poor women education for family responsibility. It was suggested in the paper that for optimal national development, women who are the first teachers in the family set up should be provided with adequate and functional education (or literacy). It was argued that provision of functional education to the women folk would enable them to make additional contributions towards public life, social, economic and moral development of the family and by extension the nation.
