Interview: A “Bright Horizon” for Girls’ Education

The Bank’s education team recently hosted a one-day colloquium, “Getting to Equal in Education,” to address how girls worldwide can achieve the full benefits of a quality education and as a result lead healthy, productive lives that benefit their families, their communities, and their nations.

Amina Az-Zubair, CEO, Center for Development Policy Solutions and former Senior Special Assistant to the President of Nigeria on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), delivered the colloquium’s keynote address.  She sat down with Carolyn Reynolds, Acting Communications Advisor for the Bank’s Human Development Network, to share her thoughts on the links between girls’ education and economic growth; key actions for “getting to equal” for girls; and the path for girls’ education beyond the 2015 MDG deadline.

I feel that role models are very important for the female population in our schools. Students need to see examples of achievements made by other females outside the educational setting.
