Lack of investment in education
The governments of some African countries are not investing enough money into education. Many African governments dismiss or overlook education as a critical investment. The shortage of funding contributes to the inability to build educational facilities, lack of highly trained educators, and an inadequate supply of equipment (desks, chairs, chalkboards, books, notebooks, etc). All of these missing tools are required for children to learn properly and have a positive learning environment.
Education VS Poverty
Lack of education in many African countries correlates to poverty and hunger. This seriously hinders rural development and food security. It threatens productivity and limits opportunity to improve livelihoods. With education systems in African countries failing, many children are deterred from developing skills to absorb information, process effective methods for economic achievement, and learn about the cause and prevention of diseases.
