Importance of education of a girl child 
                             One of the important thing that we all need to focus on is the education of a girl child. Now-a-days girls are getting educated but in the previous eras the girl child were denied a lot and even they weren't sent to school to get educated. in the previous days the parents used to think that girls child should be in the four walls of the house and help their mother out in cleaning utensils and even wash clothes. The parents of the girl child in those days used to think that girl child is a burden and even they need to work in the house education is not must for them but now everything has gone totally opposite the girls now a days are getting educated and even they read, write and even they let others also get educated. The government also tries too see that girls are getting free education. This a good benefit for the education of the girls. all the girls now are getting aware of the education and even the benefit of getting educated. The girls now are even working as equally to men in the society because they are getting educated.

That women might have the chance of a healthier and happier life should be reason enough for promoting girls' education. However, there are also important benefits for society as a whole. An educated woman has the skills, information and self-confidence that she needs to be a better parent, worker and citizen. An educated woman is, for example, likely to marry at a later age and have fewer children. Cross-country studies show that an extra year of schooling for girls reduces fertility rates by 5 to 10 per cent. And the children of an educated mother are more likely to survive. In India, for example, the infant mortality rate of babies whose mothers have received primary education is half that of children whose mothers are illiterate. An educated woman will also be more productive at work -- and better paid. Indeed, the dividend for educational investment is often higher for women than men. Studies from a number of countries suggest that an extra year of schooling will increase a woman's future earnings by about 15 per cent, compared with 11 per cent for a man. Over recent decades there has certainly been significant progress in girls' education . Between 1970 and 1992, combined primary and secondary enrolment for girls in developing countries rose from 38 per cent to 68 per cent -- with particularly high rates in East Asia (83 per cent) and Latin America (87 per cent). But there is still some way to go. In the least developed countries enrolment rates are only 47 per cent at the primary level and 12 per cent at the secondary level.
