dc.description.abstractThe universal declaration of human rights recognised education as a human right. Despite this recognition, a large percentage of the human population still lack access to education. This is particularly true of the girl child from less privileged background. In Nigeria, statistics shows that the percentage of girl child enrollment in secondary school is 44.3% as against 55.7% for the boy child enrollment. This disparity has wide implications for child upbringing, gender equality, access to resources and human development. Opening up access to education for the girl child is fundamental to narrowing these gaps. This paper is premised on the assumption that ODL system can serve as veritable tool for expanding educational opportunities available to the girl child in Nigeria. While the paper explores avenues through which the ODL system could be incorporated into the secondary school education, it also discusses modalities for effective functioning of the ODL system in secondary education as well as the extent of the benefits and opportunities the ODL holds for the universal secondary education of the girl child in Nigeria. // Paper ID: 325en_US
