Some kids will moan while they are driven to school in a heated or air-conditioned car, while listening to the radio and playing on their iPad. Others will have to literally risk their lives on a dangerous and exhausting journey to enjoy the privilege of education. Welcome to the age of contradiction!
In this post 25 of the most unbelievable ways to school are presented, showing the contrast of lifestyles and the significance of education. According to the NGOÂ HumaniumÂ â€śToday, education remains an inaccessible right for millions of children around the world. More than 72 million children of primary education age are not in school and 759 million adults are illiterate and do not have the awareness necessary to improve both their living conditions and those of their childrenâ€ť.
These numbers are eye-opening and give an idea of the magnitude of this issue. Moreover, dangerous ways to school are the main reasons why children decide to quit school. The UN and other organizations aim to improve this situation. However, this is a socio-economic problem, which has deep roots. It will surely take some time until all children are able to enjoy the privilege of education!
