Poverty &
Education Qn) Can everyone afford education?
Ans: In Singapore, yes. But in
some countries, most children
live in poverty, meaning that they
cannot afford education. Qn) What is the definition of poverty?

Ans: The state or condition of having little or no money, goods, or means of support; condition of being poor. In Singapore, it is compulsory for all children to attend kindergarten and primary school. This might not be the case for other countries. Take for example, America. In 2011, approximately 46.2 million Americans were living in poverty. This means that they will be absent on school days to work in order to support their family. Education Poverty Dropout rates of 16 to 24 year old students who come from families with low incomes, are 7 times more likely to drop out than those from families with higher incomes. Students will then be unable to find a high income job to support the family. Thus, the income gap between the rich and the poor will widen.
