At What Age… Are School Children Employed, Married and Taken to Court?

INEE has reported on a recent report from Right to Education

This publication analyses national legislation on the duration of compulsory education and legal safeguards against adult responsibilities infringing on children’s education. What it shows is that children’s right to education is currently under threat from early marriage, child labour and imprisonment; States have not adapted their legislation in favour of the right to education, and they do not have agreed standards for the transition from childhood to adulthood either internationally or nationally.

The full report is available here.
