This book, which is a collection of the author’s papers presented at various conferences, is aimed at giving more people the opportunity of reading about her perception of the status of women and children education in Nigeria. The book covers the efforts of government and non-governmental organizations in Nigeria in educating women and children. It looks at the necessity of an education geared towards reorienting children in all aspects of our cultural values most especially functionalism, to ensure that education serves its purposes. Since education has been adopted by the Nigerian government as an instrument par excellence for national development, the author then suggests how best practices in women and children education could be achieved through proper monitoring of schools and by developing workable policies. Education should be for all round development – the head, the hand and the heart - therefore, more efforts should be geared towards technical and vocational education. To give more opportunities to indigent children, the Home Grown School Feeding and Health Programme is a necessity if the government is sincere at attaining the global Education For All (EFA) goals.
