Because I work at an all girls school there is a huge emphasis on educating girls, which is obviously a good thing.  But I feel like the people here still lose the message a little sometimes.  They emphasize educating girls and they tell the students to stay in school and work hard, but just so they can get a husband and get married.  I think they are missing the point.  They should be emphasizing to these girls to get an education to make something of themselves, so they can get a job and be successful and independent.  Instead they just think it is so they can get a better husband.  They have even used the quotes “Behind every successful man is a strong woman.”  It is a good point but it shouldn’t be the whole point.  They want these girls to get an education to support men in society, not to make something of themselves.
