Abstract

This study examined the notion that the female participation in teaching would affect the enrollment of female student in secondary in Nigeria. To do this, the feminism theory was explored to supoort the gender equality agenda going on around the globe. The literature also pinpointed that promoting the engagement of women in teaching profession would assist the economy. Owning to this, the study made used of panel data from 2007 to 2011 and data were analysed using the static panel data regression. The result shows that female participation in teaching has positively affected the enrollment of female students in secondary schools in Nigeria at 5% level of significance. In addition, the enrollment of female students at this level of education was not motivated by the presence of male participation in teaching. Thus, policy makers were advised to make appropriate plan to accommodate more women in the teaching profession in order to increase female students enrollment in secondary schools and consequently reduce the gender inequality.
