Think carefully about this one. The question is just about girls - not all children - and only about education at a basic, primary level. It is also limited to low-income countries, which are sometimes mistakenly referred to as developing countries, and to ALL such countries, not a specific example.

Can you give your answer as a percentage, plus a word or two about the reason for your answer?

It should be all the girls because the primary school education should be free of charge and it's one of the primary duties of a modern country.

The question was not about what it should be, but what you reckon it is. I wanted to get some idea about what people thought the actual figure was, based merely on their own perceptions.

The fact is 'quite painful' ; many who don't get and complete the primary education in under and developing countries, surely the fund or budget for education is the main problem since  the countries must distribute the budget for all sectors evenly.

But I'm only asking people to hazard a guess as to what they think the actual figure is!

I think it's about 40%.

Great - thanks for that. I will reveal the actual figure in due course!

I think for the girl child in low income countries, the little girls do not have a fair chance at education even at the basic level. I could easily say that for developed countries, primary level is attained.

In low income countries, the little afforded is mostly channelled to the boy child, the girls either learn a trade, cater for the home or even do both.

Aren't you prepared to state a percentage figure for what you think it is?

Perhaps it would be around 5-6% of world population.

In our country maybe more than 95% of girls have completed primary schooling - that is 1st to 4th grade.

What do you think the figure might be for ALL low-income countries taken together?

In my country, there is a rule that kids should be going to school from primary to secondary level. It is no excuse not to send them to public schools.

But can you hazard a guess as to what the answer to my question might be? That was the point of posting this topic!

Less than 66% finish their primary education. Many of those countries do not place much importance on the education of females.

Our country is a developing one and we have a free education for all the boys and girls in all levels.

According to our statistics there are 60.78% of girls who completed their education even the graduate studies than the boys.
