Abstract

This chapter first discusses the relationship between education and child labour, then, the evidence for a health-benefit from school participation. It reviews the strategies used by governments and schools to attract and support working children in schools thereby, indirectly, reducing the incidence of child labour. Finally, it presents a broader theoretical overview of the problem of school participation, including non-governmental and grassroots organizing efforts on behalf of working children.
