Why do girls in Africa have less school hours than boys?

Why do girls in Africa have less school hours than boys?

Girls would you like to leave school in the middle of the day to clean, cook, and do chores around the house? Yes I know it sounds great. But don’t you want to be independent. It happens in Africa all the time. It doesn’t happen here so why does it still happen in Africa?
There getting robbed of there education. How would you like if you were a girl and had leave school to cook and clean while boys go whole days and get to play afterwards so why do girls have to leave school in Africa and do chores while boys play?
I personally as a girl love education and to know that girls in Africa don’t get as much education as we do it makes me upset. We get a choose to go to school after the 9th or when your 16 years old. We take our education for granite. Girls in Africa don’t get a choice. THAT IS NOT FAIR AT ALL. Girls would you like it if you had to leave school and have to cook, clean , take care of the house. I didn’t think so!! It is horrible that they don’t get an education.

We should raise money to send to Africa educational system so little boys/girls can go to school. My Classmates and I get to learn about Africa and I choose to learn about there educational system and I found out that the girls are so unfortunate they only go to school for a half day. Yes there is a lot of children well say they would love it but when reality hits them they’ll wish they had it more. Because they would have to cook, clean and all that kinds of stuff. While boys finish out the school day and go play afterwards. I think we should push and push until girls in Africa get full days of school even just 2 more hours would help. Most girls in Africa don’t get past the 8th grade. How does that make you feel? When I first found this out it made me feel horrible because education is very important to me so I think we should send money out there to get them the education they need. What are they going to do when there older and there husband leaves or dies? There not going to be able to get a job or anything that brings in enough money in. they should get an education.
If you believe that education is important then you should believe that girls in Africa need more education. Why should Africa’s girls suffer by not getting the education they need. I know that girls have a rough time in Africa the schools in Africa are not as safe as here they can be pull in a room and be raped they deserve safeness before there childhood is taking away from them. They need longer days, and more education. Women are mistreated in Africa. We say we are Christian place but we don’t even do what the bible says “love are neighbor as you love yourself “
Yes I know we have problems of our own but we don’t have as big as problems. But why should but why should girls in Africa have to suffer what we don’t. Girls here don’t like school well why should we pay for there education if they hate it. Girls in Africa wish they had more hours of school. I don’t think it is right for girls in Africa to suffer. They work hard while girls here don’t. We as Americans can help save them from a life without choices caused by a lack of education. We should love and care for other countries.
Yes I know people have problems with Africa but if we don’t get over that stupid problem we could get more education for Africa. Did you know that most poor families have more than three kids that is a problem because it will keep growing which means more kids not having education. Especially girls. So if we donate money to Africans education system we will get a better country. If there is no education in Africa that means more food they can’t afford and the more food we have to send them. This will cost more money than have money to donate for education. So if we will donate money well save money by 2040.
In that case we should donate money so that girls in Africa can be independent and not have to depend on their government.
