Bertrand A. Russell (1872-1970) English philosopher, mathematician, and writer. People who lack education are the people who are not been taught. The cause of this is that the majority of the people are poor. There are even people who stop their children to go to schools because they want them to work, again the issue here is money. They want them to work and not be educated.
Children are born with a low birth weight and there are high mortality rates, malnutrition and starvation. Poverty also affects learning and development in children which results in a continent full of illiterate people, resulting in them not being able to find employment and earn a decent income to meet their daily needs. Not earning a decent income also results in parents not being able to take their children to schools which creates what is called a “cycle of poverty”. Emotional
An instance of a teacher not talking about privilege and poverty, happened while I was observing at Carrollwood Elementary School. A female student, who is Hispanic and about the age of ten, got pulled from her home due to her home life not being an ideal living situation for someone that young. The student got separated from her brother, her mother and since she was unable to stay with her father, she was jumping from foster home to foster home. Prior to this happening, she was an average student in school, according to her teacher but after being separated from her brother, she started becoming a below average student, one of the worst in the class. The teacher explained to me that, since the student was living in poverty, and less privileged than the others in the class, she was unable to concentrate on her classwork as well as her homework.
According to Dr. Payne, many students of low income or poverty do not have access to formal register in the home environment and therefore, have a difficult time on statewide assessments such as the SAT and ACT. Students are unable to use formal register because they do not have the vocabulary
Being not able to attend school, many people go through life without the knowledge on how to read or write. The society are impacted in various ways due to the low literacy standard. The Borgen project advised that by obtaining a basic education could relief 171 million people from poverty. Poverty stops people from gaining a good education, and stops people from escaping poverty and forces people to stay in this viscous downward cycle. 4.
Did you know that in some countries there are 130 children in one classroom and some children have to study outside in the heat or in cold, they also sometimes study on the dirt. Lack of education is a big problem. Lack of education is sometimes caused by poverty. Lack of education may or may not suffer in the future. Lack of education is caused by poverty as you need money to provide education for a child.
In view of the impact of rural poverty across Africa, the rural areas school children in most African countries are at a disadvantage when it comes to the provision of quality education judging from a socioeconomic point of view. Generally, the rural areas have less teachers who are less qualified for the number of enrolled children which evidently points out the low qualified teachers-per-school i.e. 100 pupils to one teacher. The causes of low numbers of qualified teachers are many and also complex some of which are linked to socioeconomic conditions, inequalities and poverty. For instance, teachers naturally opt for urban areas than rural areas school because of huge opportunities and prospects in the urban areas and most importantly higher income.
Poverty and hunger make young children and women belonging to the poorer section of society are particularly vulnerable to human trafficking. The lack of education causes, many villages of India has no school. Existing schools in India are in very bad condition. Teachers lack the incentive to work in the village because of poor salaries being offered, inadequate working environment, and transportation issues. As a result, most children have little or no education.
Education is essential for most school students. Another bad impact of working on education is that children have to skip their lessons in order to earn money. (Strulik, 2013) For instance, in Jordan 4008 pupils were debriefed: 2093 (52.2%) from them were nonworking school children 896 (22.4%)-working school children, 1019 (25.4%) -working and non-schooled children. (Al-Gamal & Hamdan-Mansour & Matrouk & Nawaiseh, 2013). Working school children experienced more health problems during the work rather than children who left school and started working.
It is mainly because the majority of the adult people from Cusubamba have not any more formal education than the primary school. Due to the lack of money, most of them had to leave the school in order to find a job and help with their family’s economy. In other cases, especially women could not continue studying in the high school because they had to help with the chores at home or maybe to take care of their little siblings while their parents are working. It is well known that in the school it is used only very basic vocabulary just in order to communicate and do the school activities. As a consequence of this, people at homes do not possess the knowledge necessary to help their children to improve their vocabulary and language.
