Education and some of its major challenges

Have you ever thought about the fact that there are certain countries and continents that seems to be suffering from lack of education. Africa and a part of Asia appears to be the two major continents affected by it. There are many reasons that are responsible for this lack of education.

Factors responsible for lack of education in Africa

Looking at it traditionally, Africa happens to be one of the continents that holds fast to their traditions and beliefs. In as much as that is a good trait, it can also be a factor hindering the growth and development of those nations. Irrespective of all the civilization that has been going on around the world, some countries still believe that men are the ones that need to be educated not women. This statement might hold water because it has some level of truth in it, but it is not the total truth. We are in an era where women are rising up to the challenge and making good use of their lives. This belief system has killed a lot of dreams and desires especially in women and has made some of them lose their self-worth. Education in places like that would be more than just formal education, it would have to include a complete change in mindset and thinking pattern.

Challenges confronting educational development

This lack of education can also be based on lack of infrastructures and resources. Outside of traditional believes, countries that are ready for growth are hit by the level of poverty. They have no form of educative knowledge. It is so bad in some nations that they actually lack teachers that will train the kids in those countries.
Different non-profit organizations and world organizations know about these things and have sent aid to them. Although it is better now, but they are still far from attaining standard education.
