Research on Lack of Education

More than 72 million kids in the age group for elementary are not in school. Reasons for this lack of education is poverty and Marginalisation. Marginalisation is to make people feel isolated and unimportant. A lot op people don’t have education because of their gender, culture, religion, and language. Factors linked to poverty like unemployment, illness, and the illiteracy of parents multiply the risk of non-schooling and dropout rate by 2. Many new countries don’t have the money to pay for school nor to train teachers. This has an effect on the quality of teaching. Since there aren’t enough schools they have oversized classes. This causes different educational levels to be forced together. That doesn’t allow a child to benefit an education adapted to their needs and abilities. Because of that there are a lot of drop outs and failing students.Sub-Saharan Africa is the most affected area with over 32 million children of primary school age remaining uneducated. Central and Eastern Asia, as well as the Pacific, are also severely affected by this problem with more than 27 million uneducated children. Girls make up 54% of the non-schooled population. This is mostly in the Arab states, in central Asia and in southern and western Asia. It is because of their culture. Men are given more privileges. Women are destined to work in the family home while boys are required to get an education. In 2012, 31 million primary pupils dropped out also another 32 million repeated a grade. In the sub-Saharan, 11.07 million children leave school before completing their primary education. In South and West Asia, that number reaches 13.54 million. While girls are less likely to begin school, boys are more likely to repeat grades or drop out altogether. Host a competitive book drive to benefit a shelter near you. According to UNESCO, 61 million primary school-age children were not enrolled in school in 2010. Of these children, 47% were never expected to enter school, 26% attended school but left, and the remaining 27% are expected to attend school in the future. Children living in a rural environment are twice as likely to be out of school than urban children. Additionally, children from the wealthiest 20% of the population are 4 times more likely to be in school than the poorest 20%.
