A journey to education

Sometimes the problems with lack of literacy aren’t due to the educational system per se, but its limited access. In Banten, Indonesia, students have to face dangerous paths before even beginning to think about school. Bamboo rafts and broken bridges are not the ideal ways for children as young as 4 years-old to get to school, though perhaps this is only one of the reasons that low-income children are more likely to end up working in fields than classrooms.
