Access and Equity: Girls’ Education and Millenium Development Goals in Nigeria

Here, I’m sharing a paper on girls’ education in Nigeria, written for a course on Contemporary Approaches to Educational Problems. The paper is about access and equity for girls’ education in Nigeria, and was co-authored by me and my colleagues Matthew Paushter, and Emily Jones. We examined access and equity for girls in education, because there are concerns about whether access and equity for girls is something we even really have in all our schools here in the US.

I’ve posted our research and paper over at Punlearning. If you’re interested, click here.
