Child marriage and education


  
Abstract

Child marriage is associated with lower levels of schooling for girls in every region of the world and is a barrier to international development goals. A lost opportunity for education is not only harmful for girls, but has wide-reaching repercussions for their children and communities. Educating girls creates many positive outcomes for economic development and poverty reduction by improving a girl’s income-earning potential and socio-economic status.
