Importance of Education in Child Labor
Child labor is one of the most common and critical issues in all over the world. Each year more than a thousand children become the victim of child labor. Those countries which are facing the problem of poverty they suffer from child labor problem. No one can stop the child labor issue each year its happened nationally and internationally. But its percentage is more in those countries which are not well established. When children participate in labor market then the social conditions of the market automatically improved. Child labor affects the child physically, mentally, and emotionally. The child who start working under the age of 10 they all treated badly in society and at their workplace by owners. According to the research, most of the children who are under the age of 14 to 15 start working in their earlier age in labor market.
Education Role in Child Labor:
The relationship between the child labor and education is very simple and clear. Children who have fewer opportunities in life they suffer from child labor problems. The government must introduce some alternative solutions to cope up with the child labor problems. In many rural areas students do not have facilities of life and just because of this they start working at very young age. The government must plan some strategies for the social protection of the children and it is only possible when equal rights an opportunities are provided at a universal level. The success of any country is only possible when the child labor will remove from the root.
Compulsion of Education:
In today’s world, modern advancement of technology in education made the education compulsory for all students. If we see in all backward areas and rural areas, the number of institutes are built with the help of government. Free education with maximum opportunities is delivered. But in poor wages, basic needs of life better sanitary condition, neat water to drink, and maximum food for eat, and clothes to wear are not available. So after controlling these all problems, child labor can control.
Educational Training Programs:
The government must provide vocational educational programs. In addition, educational institutes must fulfill the basic requirements of the students. There are also many educational institutions in India, which are providing free and quality of education. It would help to enhance the employment and provide the learning skills according to their needs. If the government gives attention to such type of policies, then child labor problem can be easily resolved.
According to the Grace Abbott:-
“Child labor and poverty are inevitably bound together and if you continue to use the labor of children as the treatment for the social disease of poverty, you will have both poverty and child labor to the end of the time.”
