What are the 7 factors causing children in large/very large families to be the LEAST educated/


economically successful in comparison to children in small families who're the MOST educated/economically successful? In small families, there's more monies allocated per child for education. As a result,children in small families can afford to pursue college & more advanced levels of education.In large/very large families,there's very little money allocated per child.Children have to start working very early,forfeiting secondary education in order to supplement parental income.In such families,1 or 2 children attain a secondary education or better & the rest fall by the wayside educationally.

    You're right. Kids from large families tend to be impoverished & w/that, there is LESS opportunities all around. They are low academic achievers, there is LESS to go around especially in terms of educational & intellectual things.

    I take it you know all the large families and parents of large families? Is this what happens when one runs out and gets a few little degrees under one's belt? Thank God it didn't happen to me! You write judgmentally, not empathetically.

    Wrong, kids from smaller families ARE more likely to pursue tertiary levels of education. Kids from large families are lucky if they graduate from high school. The ODDS are so against them.
