Improving Educational Opportunities For Girls - Lessons from the Past Decade - Report 2003

Many factors shape the environment in which girls receive a basic education government policy and practice, the school system, community practices, religious beliefs, and cultural attitudes and behaviours. Key actors who influence the kind of education (or lack of it) that girls receive include national politicians, community leaders, religious leaders, the business community, the media, teachers, parents and even the girls themselves.

To enroll girls in school and keep them there, these key actors in society need to actively identify ways to contribute time and resources to promote girls education. They must work to transform factors that inhibit girls school participation and strengthen those that support their successful completion of school.
