Exclusion from education has impacts on society

Every human being has equal opportunities to quality education regardless of sex, ethnic origin, language, religion, nationality, social origin, economic condition, ability and so on, according to many education experts.
This means that even poor or underprivileged children wherever they live also have the same opportunity to quality education as the children of social elites in cities. However, many children drop out of their primary schools, middle schools and high schools and join the workforce to help support their parents or just simply because their parents can no longer afford education for them.
Such tragedies are common even as the government has been building more schools and increasing the education budget to make education available for all children in the country. This suggests that just making schools available to children is not enough to ensure that all children have equal access to quality education and that there are many other barriers and obstacles that exclude children from education.
Most common barriers and obstacles to education include economic conditions, ethnic origin and language. It is time to remove all the barriers and obstacles that prevent some of our children from acquiring the same quality education as the children of social elites since exclusion from education has many undesirable impacts on the society as a whole.
