Educate a boy to educate a person, Educate a girl to educate a family
It is said that if you educate a boy, you educate a person and, if you educate a girl, you educate a family. Because men would always focus on their work, they would not have time to spend with their children. Their part in running the family is much less when compared to women.
But in the case of women story is different. Women perform better in academics than men. A woman who returns from work would not have a mindset to get good rest at home. After reaching home, she would spend some time with their children and make them do their homework. She would teach good behaviors to their children. An educated woman knows the importance of health and hygiene. So she would cook healthy food for their family. If an uneducated woman lost her husband, she would face a struggle to bring up the children. But an educated woman will have the confidence to stand on her legs even after losing her husband.
So it is entirely true that if you educate a woman, you educate a family because a woman is the first teacher of every child.
