Ng Wei Liang's curator insight, January 31, 2013 11:44 PM

As the title suggests, I think that poverty can be associated to the lack of education in children. As written in the text, a median of 85% of adults with a primary education or less are living on less than $2 per day (based on household income in international dollars), versus 62% of those with a secondary education. If the a person has no education, is illiterate, he will be less likely to get a job, thus getting no income, linking him back to poverty.

Education can change a life. It can make poor people get out of poverty.

Leow Guo Shao's curator insight, February 3, 2013 12:55 AM

I can see that the adults in Africa who have better education, are leading a better life than those who only had primary education or less, many of them are having more money to spent and many of them are having enough food to eat. I think that education is an important factor, they can get better jobs that give them more money when they have a better education, which can get them more money to spent. They are also more knowledgable when they have more education. I wonder why people refuse to have education when they have no money, they should perservere on, to work part-time to continue their education, so that they can have a better life when they get a better job in the future.
