Why is education so important

Why Is Education So Important?

Education is important because it allows a person to think for themselves, and develop.

It is a Human Right because with even a basic education your quality of life is better then having none.


Why is education so important

  • In 1999, 98 Million children (primary school age) were denied this right . .

  • By 2004 the number dropped to 77 Million


What children are affected

What Children Are Affected?

  •  “The children most likely to be out of school and to drop out live in rural areas and come from the poorest households. On average, a child whose mother has no education is twice as likely to be out of school as one whose mother has some education.” (EFA Report)


What needs to be changed

What Needs to Be Changed

  • “Most of these families’ incomes come from working as street sellers or laborers. Access to early childhood development interventions is limited. Additionally, the quality and relevance of education are significant problems. It takes an average of 10.3 years to complete the mandatory six years of schooling. Poverty affects school participation and many families are unable to afford the direct or hidden costs.” (Nicaragua Facts)

The majority of students are only fortunate enough to get through primary school, in 2003, 823,000 children out of 1.55 million failed the school year. (FSD)


Break the cycle

Break The Cycle:

  • “While rich countries nurture their economic recovery, many poor countries face the imminent prospect of education reversals. We cannot afford to create a lost generation of children deprived of their chance for an education that might lift them out of poverty,” said UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova. (UNESCO)
