Understanding the interplay between child labour and exclusion from schooling

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The presentation examines links between child labour and exclusion from education using descriptive data from a range of developing countries. While it stands to reason that most out-of-school children (OOSC) are involved in some form of productive activity, effective policy responses require detailed information on the nature and extent of the work that OOSC perform. The presentation therefore first assesses the involvement of OOSC in employment and household chores.

The presentation then assesses the characteristics of OOSC households of potential relevance to household decisions to keep their children out of school. Social vulnerability is assessed in particular, as vulnerable households can be forced to keep their children out of school and involve them in child labour as a buffer against social risk. Indicators presented in this context include the share of OOSC living in households that are female-headed, poor, or exposed to shocks. Finally, the presentation assesses the access of OOSC households to services with a potential bearing on whether children work instead of attending school. Indicators to be examined include access to basic services (e.g., water, electricity), quality schooling, social safety nets, and credit.

The presentation concludes with a discussion of the policy implications emerging from the descriptive evidence. The importance of "mainstreaming" child labour considerations into broader policy efforts aimed at getting excluded children (back) into the school system is underscored. The specific need for policy responses to the variety of factors that lead households send their children to work rather than to school is also stressed.
