Education & Education Reform

Quality primary and secondary education preparing them for higher education, jobs and careers is necessary for girls to grow into thriving adults. In order to expand career options science, math and technical education must be made more accessible and appealing to girls; for example, through gender awareness training for educators and organizers of science and technology-related programs. Schools must recognize the educational needs of adolescent girls, including comprehensive sex education and sound information about preventing STDs and unwanted pregnancy. Girls also require education about and protection from sexual harassment, bullying and other forms of violence.
