Across Malawi’s rural schools there is a disproportionately high percentage of female pupil drop outs. Only 10% of the primary children are being taught by female teachers, and a low number of suitably qualified female applicants are registering on teacher training courses. Such slim representation demonstrates the extent of gender inequality both at a pupil, and also teacher level.
