    Education in the World 2

    Message par med kamel le Lun 29 Sep - 18:49

    Many children do not go to school either because their parents want them at home as carers for siblings, or simply because their parents cannot be bothered to send them. Thousands more are not registered at any school at all, because of their families’ unstable lives. Underlying this dreadful situation there are two central truths. First of all, the problem of children not going to school often has more to do with their parents than with the children themselves. Secondly, once children go to school, we need to make sure that the experience is a positive one so that they want to keep on going.

    In Britain, the Ministry of Education has introduced a complex package of sticks and carrots to persuade schools to bring truants' and excluded children back into the classroom. It is paying grants so that a thousand schools can set up special units to help these children. Schools receive the grant if they bring a target number of children back to school; if they do not meet the target, the grant is withdrawn. Parents are the subject of this campaign, too: the Home Office has introduced fines for parents who fail to send their children to school, and has given the police power to pick up truants on the streets.



    1. Answer the following questions using your own words.
    a) Why do many parents not send their children to school?
    b) How are the authorities trying to solve this problem?

    2.Are the following statements true (T) or false (F)?
    a) The problem of truancy is mainly a matter of obedience.
    b) It is very hard to persuade children that if they go to school, they will be able to  get a job.

    3) What or who do the underlined words in the text refer to?
    a)they§1                                     b) their §2

    4.Choose, a, b, or c.
    According to the text, there are thousands of children who...
    a) stay at home doing the housework.
    b) live in stable families
    c) are not registered at any school


    5.Give a suitable title to the text.

    6.Find words or phrases in the text that are similar in meaning to:
    a) someone who looks after a relative at home
    b) turbulent
