Problems and Prospects of Women Access to Science and Technology Education in Nigeria
Imhanlahimi, E. O.; Eloebhose, F. E.
College Student Journal, v40 n3 p583-587 Sep 2006
In this paper, the writers highlighted the importance of science and technology in the development of nations, and expressed the view that the Federal Government of Nigeria, as reflected in the National Policy on Education (1998), gave premium to scientific and technological studies, and did not discriminate between boys and girls in their accesses to such studies in schools. This notwithstanding, various science education literature have revealed low participation of females, in science and technology education compared to their male counterparts. Consequently, factors militating against women access to scientific and technological studies were examined and solutions accordingly proffered.
