The Human Rights Watch observes, “In June 2007, 500 middle school children in the western territory of Sichuan were found actively in work for 14 hours in a factory in Dongguan, Guangdong Province, as part of their summer employment. The children were provided with inadequate food and were forced to live in clustered dormitories. This led to health issues. Also, children were charged for production errors”. Another drawback for child labourers is the interference of education.
Most children who consist of mainly boys start primary school at the age of 5. The sizes of the classes are up to 65 students per teachers, school supplies and basic facilities were also lacking. In rural places because of the lack of schools there are 100 students for 1 teacher in a government school and 20-30 students for 1 teacher in a private school. In government schools, they also lack in school supplies such as pens, paper and books, so there will be at least 20 students sharing one or two books in a class. There also the lack of schools in rural areas in Ethiopia that's why students who live in rural areas don’t go to school because of lack of schools.
One study found that kids in early elementary school received about three times the amount of recommended homework. Homework should be eliminated because it can negatively impact mental health and because it can limit students time with family and activities. It is all too apparent that homework must be cut since it can adversely influence mental well-being. According to the article“Stanford Research Shows Pitfalls of Homework” by Clifton B. Parker,89% of students reported homework was a stressor. 56% of students considered homework as a primary source of stress.

1 billion out of 2.2 billion children in the world are in poverty (Shah). That’s every second child. Shah states that one in four people live without electricity. People living in poverty have less access to education and are more likely to commit crime, and their children are less likely to be successful as adults. This creates low social mobility and poor health standards, which lead to more social spending and a financial strain on the economy.

From the ages of 6-16, education in Ireland is compulsory or until the pupil has completed three years of secondary education. Pre-schooling is not mandatory in Ireland, yet primary level schools acknowledge children from the age of four onwards. Primary level schools consist of eight classes, ranging from junior infants to sixth class. Most schools are state funded and privately own, that provide for the needs of children such as food up to age 12. Mostly, the education programme is a child focused one that takes into account the adaptability of timetabling and teaching strategies.
Not everybody can go to school and learn, there are thousands of students who want to study but lack of money became a hindrance. Poverty is one of the main causes of the country’s poor education record and has affected participation in education in more ways than one. Even with the “zero tuition” offer of the government, poor families are hindered by lack of employment and short income. Meanwhile, since the establishment of the institution of higher education in the Philippines three centuries and seven decades ago, the demand for higher education cost has continued to increase. This results to average Filipino parent to go through great sacrifices and self-denial to be able to send a child to school, knowing it would mean half of the family’s annual income a year per child.
The education of the Eastern Cape vary from other provinces in a way that in Eastern Cape there are many disadvantaged schools especially in rural areas. It comes at a time when education in the province is widely considered to be in crisis. There are many obstacles in schools that affect learners in a way which include lack of teachers and textbooks. In some areas you will find that there are no teachers for the major subjects such as Mathematics, Physical Sciences, Accounting and then learners end up failing those subject because they do not have people in their communities that may be able to help them. Parents of the learners or pupils are looking up to their children when they go to school hoping that they will fulfil their goals and other parents never had the chance to attend school because of the era they grew up in and their dreams are to see the children progressing in life with opportunities that are provided by the education but when the government does not deliver all those goals and dreams fade away.
