Women as Educators

Digumarti Bhaskara Rao (Author) Digumarthi Harshitha (Author) Digumarti Pushpa Latha (Author)
Synopsis Cultural identity and family values are largely passed on to new generations by women, but their access to information and education is limited in many parts of the world. Under this circumstance, UNESCO commissioned a study to make a comparative analysis of women as educators in the family, in the school, in the community and in the public life in the nine high population countries—Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Nigeria and Pakistan—known as E-9 countries. The study reveals that the progress in women’s empowerment is perceptible in all the E-9 countries except Nigeria. Many of these countries still believe that a woman’s place is in the home. The educational level of parents, principally of mothers, is determining the educational achievement of their children. Evidence shows that the presence of women teachers has a positive effect on enrolment. It is evident that the higher level of educational development of girls and women, the higher indices of female empowerment. Women are felt essential in bringing the fundamental institutions—family, society and school—closer together to achieve a relevant and life-long education for all. This book, with all details of the UNESCO study on women as educators in E-9 countries, is very much useful to the students, teachers, researchers, educationists, policy makers and activists.
