 Girls, Educational Equity and Mother Tongue-based Teaching

  28/11/2005 - This new
  UNESCO publication
  argues that language,
  specifically the
  language used in
  schools, is one of the
  principal mechanisms
  through which
  inequality in education
  is reproduced. It shows
  how the learner’s
  mother tongue holds the
  key to making schooling
  more inclusive for all
  disadvantaged groups,
  especially for girls
  and women.
