Policy Paper: Out of School Children and Child Labour

Published By: Global March Against Child Labour

Published Year: 2014

As the Education For All (EFA) process is progressing, two main groups of children are still left behind. First, children who have yet to gain access to a good primary school. Second, those who do not get to attend even when a basic primary school is accessible: these are referred to as the 'hard-to-reach children' among the out-of-school children. According to the most recent figures released by the UNESCO Institute of Statistics (UIS), there were 57 million out- of-school children of primary school age in 2011, a slight decrease from 2010.
The focus of this paper is on these 'hard-to-reach children', and within them the children who work instead of going to school for a complex set of reasons – child labourers.
