Education is about learning skills and knowledge. It also means helping people to learn how to do things and support them to think about what they learn. It’s also important for educators to teach ways to find and use information. Education needs research to find out how to make it better.
Through education, the knowledge of society, country, and of the world is passed on from generation to generation. This may include education in morality, for example learning how to act as loyal, honest and effective citizen.
Child labour in India is when Indian children work for money, on a part or full-time basis….
The practice deprives children of their childhood, and is harmful to their physical and mental development. Various things lead to children working. Poverty, lack of good schools and informal work places may be blamed.
The 1998 national census of India estimated the total number of child labour, aged 4–15, to be at 12.6 million, out of a total child population of 253 million in 5-14 age group. The 2011 national census of India found the total number of child labour, aged 5–14, to be at 4.35 million, and the total child population to be 259.64 million in that age group.
The child labour problem is not unique to India; worldwide, about 217 million children work, many full-time.
