Why are so many girls are missing from classrooms? One major reason is because marriage is viewed as a higher priority than education. It is estimated that every year, 15 million girls are married before they turn 18 (UNICEF). After their wedding, these young girls tend to leave the education system—and because these girls have fewer educational skills, they (and their families) are more likely to live in poverty.
