Education and child labour in the Philippines

To learn and to earn education and child labour in the Philippines: A country report

The study was prepared to undertake a Philippine report on the basic education in the country and its links to the child labour problem, and to provide an analysis of selected projects that are considered innovative and successful in the prevention of child labour and addressing the needs of working children.

For the purpose of developing recommendations, the paper will focus on two levels of causality and corresponding actions: the state and city level and the community and family level. However, since the management of the educational system is still centralized, it is also necessary to address national level policy. Specific national policies relevant to child labour problem, specially the educational needs of working children will be addressed.
