5. RESULTS IN HEALTHIER, BETTER-EDUCATED CHILDREN


Better-educated mothers have healthier and better-educated children, who are more likely to benefit from adequate nutrition and immunizations, attend school more regularly and longer, and study more frequently.
On average, each additional year of school a mother attends leads to her children completing four more months of school by the age of 15 to 18.*
