EAP1 "Educating girls is a real lifesaver"

HeeKyung Nam


In the article, “Educating girls is a real lifesaver” by Victoria Brittain and Larry Elliott, the author discuses that one of the best ways to reduce poverty is the education of girls in poor countries. The young girls of poor rural communities are illiterate and have big problems because they are living deprived of the basic essences of life. These girls deal with terrible situations such as premature births, back-breaking work, etc. However, there are bigger problems because poverty and anguish are linked in a repeating pattem not only among the fust generations but also the next generations. To improve this problem, girls has to improve in conservative countries for the education of girls to happen. They can be relieved of poverty and can live better lives though education.
These days, people think that the young girls of poor rural communities do notneed education and only boys need education because people of poor countries havefeudalistic customs. However, poor countries should have an educational liability untilat least the middle school for girls, because education plays an important role in everyone’s life. Countries should give a chance to girls and all citizens to live happy lives. For example, girls can live happier lives if they look for their loving works and can join their livelihood though educational liability. Thus, educational liability is important to everyone’s lives.
Second, young girls need a social organization of protecting their children. If girls should go to school in order to be educated, girls need an organization that takes careof their sons and daughters. For example, when girls go to school, their children can play with children of about the same age and can learn social skills though teachers. Then girls can study hard in school and can feel comfortable about their children’s well-being.
Third, poor countries should remove sexual discrimination. If there is gender Discrimination in a country with a one sided gender development, it can not difficult not only the other side gender’s development but also a balanced development. When both men and women’s skills are developed, the country gains benefits. For example, it has different from man and woman’s ability. If only boy’s ability develops, the country’s development very difficult because it can demonstrate only a half ability among country’s population rate.
In conclusion, I think girls should have education in the poor countries. So a citizen contributes to a privilege of happy life. In order to have a happy life, at least until the middle school, poor girls should have compulsory education. Also, while girls go to the school, their son and daughters were talked care of teacher of a social organization. Then poor countries should remove a sexual discrimination among their feudal custom to country’s benefit.

"Educating Girls is a Real Lifesaver"


By Hyunsung Cho

The article,” Educating Girls is a Real Lifesaver” by Victoria Brittain and Larry Elliott, talks about poor countries where women receive little education. Women in poor countries have many problems such as disease, infant deaths, and a lot of births due to little education. Thus they need education because it can help the economies grow, reduce the infant mortality rate and improve the environment. In the last 30 to 40years, the countries that have accomplished
gender impartiality have been developing quickly. The poor countries need to change from conservative thoughts that women never need to be educated. Once they get rid of hidebound ideas, there can be equal payment and education. Every year, many children have been killed by infectious diseases. However, although some of the countries remain, they are indicating lower infant mortality rate through school education of girls. Also, the authors discuss
how poor countries in main farming areas such as Africa and southern Asia, are able to offer many opportunities in the development of agriculture though education. This could prevent environmental problems in these regions such as malnutrition and global warming effects throughout the world.
Women should be educated around the world in order to decrease social problems. It is very important for children futures and the equality of sexes as well as national development.
First of all, women’s education plays a pivotal role in children’s futures, mostly, women become a mothers, and mother’s education a degree influences the education of her children. For example, children who have mothers who are doctors appear to have a higher probability of also becoming doctors. In this way, education offers a lot of opportunities for children in the future.
Second, education should be available to women in order to have equality of the sexes. Education provides a lot of information and knowledge, and one will gain understanding of one’s rights and duties. So, women could against an unfair dealing and to claim own’s one a right, also it could fortify equality of the sexes.
Third, women’s education contribute to national development of third-world countries. There are clever people, men as well as women. So, countries should offer women a chance for education, and women’s ability should develop. There are many women scientists in Korea. They have been finding good research results by delicate of women. It contribute to not only one’s own development ,but also national development.
In conclusion, women’s education should be required because it influences families, societies, and nations. It is evident that education needs to be available to women.
