As for the children who are already working, extreme measures should be taken so that they will have access to education. If a law has to be put into place specifically stating that every single child must receive an education then a law should be placed if that is what it takes. The reason education should be taken seriously is due to the fact that education can change the course of these kids’ lives. Before they received an education, they may have been destined to be poor laborers their entire life but with an education, they can become extremely successful in any career they choose, and every kid is entitled to an opportunity at success. But in order to get the children laborers to an education action must be taken from people of power and local communities. People of power can help by passing laws and ordinances that make child labor illegal and local communities can help by giving money to the kids where they need the money so they can go to school to receive the education that they are entitled to. So, at the end of the day, everybody has to unite and contribute in their own way in order to eradicate the global crisis of child labor.
