    No. It is six of one and half a dozen of the other. It depends on the individual and what his/her goals are in life. Some who are thought to be a 'good investment' end up as social derelicts. There are those who were considered 'a waste of time' and they own their own business or make the best of life and build a strong family who contributes to the well- being of their society. Once a child finds his/her niche/  true purpose in life, that person becomes priceless. All others- whether boy or girl- are still on an endless quest.

    The obvious benefit of educating both boy-child and girl-child is to hasten the decline of NASCAR.

    I think both the male and female are equals if given the same opportunities and freedom. .
    But females have the ability to think and take decisions more effectively, manage in a better way and put 100% of their effort into things if they want to, which makes them blossom in their area of interest.

    Educating female child is like an investment with a relative low returns because in so many conditions the certificate not oftenly put to use. while educating male child brings lot of returns in its due time.

    There ought to be no preference. Every child regardless of gender ought to be offered what is available. The purpose of education is to raise an aware human being.

    I do not agree.  Educating all children equally is the important thing.  This smacks of gender discrimination, which, as a society, we need to outgrow.

    All education is important, and lifelong learning should be everyone's ultimate goal.  Girls and boys are equally capable of learning any subject, given encouragement, tools and the proper exposure to information.

    education is a right for both the sexes. it must not be just for the girl child or for the boy. it is their right, which parents will have to give them.
    since education of the girl child is not given much importance in many parts of the world, it is being promoted by various NGOs.

    I can't believe that someone is even asking a question like this in 2011. As a teacher it disturbs me that anyone would consider educating a child based solely on gender.
