One of the main aims of education is to train children for day to day living, which include enabling them to care for the need of the family as well as the nation. A successful education should also foster in children the joy and happiness of living and to help them to take their place in the society as well as balanced individuals.
Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education (John Kennedy 1981).
As stated above education is a work which legacy nation and parents should bequeath to their children in order to have independent, intelligent and wise cadres of tomorrow. The belief in this makes parents toil day and night in their forms and work place to ensure that their children get the best education in their later time all over the world. Therefore this brings us to know that education play’s vital roles in hatching new cadres for the nation, especially free and universal education for both male and female children in the society. In view, the above aims of education among many others, is therefore appealing and a thing of great sadness to know that girl-child education is given a lack deistical attitude by parents of Suru Local Government, Kebbi State.
This project therefore seek to find out the reasons for the cold attitude of girl-child education by parents of Suru Local Government and possibly proffer lasting solution to the problem in the State.
