Dauda, Juliana Hussaina (Author)
Education is a transformation tool, an instrument of empowerment and manpower drive for national development and every child is entitled to equal opportunity to free and compulsory basic and higher education based on their individual ability. Although general enrolment into school has increased in Niger State has gone higher, access to higher education by girl children has not increased commensurably due to socio-cultural factors. The objective of this study is to examine the socio-cultural factors that are encumbering to girl-child access to higher education in Niger State. This study examines the girl-child marginalization with unequal access to higher education compared to her male counterpart. The study reveals that cultural practices serve as hindrance to female-child education and that inaccessibility of the female-child education makes her vulnerable to early marriage, denial of fundamental rights and child labour. The paper concluded that if female-child education is fostered, she would be self-reliant, adequately and appropriately socialized and well empowered to contribute meaningfully to the community as well as acquire skills of problem-solving to an appreciable extent. The paper therefore recommends that education should be made accessible to the female-child at all levels and awareness programme should be mounted to redeem the image of the female-child to make the world a better place for her to live.
Developing critical literacy practices of tertiary learners in the ESL classroom: Critical Literacy Practices
Radha M K Nambiar (Author)
A major concern is that students are not critical when they read in school and this practice is carried to university. Tertiary reading necessitates students read more than one text and then synthesize the information before presenting their understanding of a topic either in a written or oral form. This means they have to effectively interact with the text and construct meaning based on their knowledge and students struggle to do this. This paper will show how students can be guided to develop critical perspectives and a better understanding of how texts position and even marginalize readers. Using a case study method data comprised observation notes, student assignments and student reflections. The findings highlight that students can move beyond passively accepting the text’s message to understand ideologies, injustices and power struggles which shape texts. This shift is further evident when students become text producers at the end of the fourteen weeks.
