Abstract:Despite certain measures which aimed at closing the gap between males and females (i.e. the Programme pour la Scolarisation des Jeunes Filles ), education still is, at least to some extent, considered a male endeavor in rural communities such as the ones described in this study. The status of women in their communities contributes to the current state of education with regard to females. The schooling of young girls is impacted by diverse socio-economic and curricular factors that pertain to patriarchal conceptions that have gone unquestioned. If girls are to be given the same social opportunities as their male counterparts, some of those concepts need to be reformulated to suit the needs of females. In addition, school curricula should reflect those changes.
