The following thesis applied the theoretical concepts of social exclusion and capabilities approach as well as a child-centred perspective to understand the impact of poverty on children’s experiences of schooling. The central questions of the research were what is the relationship between poverty and access to and quality of education in the context of

The findings of this research confirm that poverty impacts considerably on children’sexperience of schooling and the social gap in educational experiences arises from what happens within children’s lives in and out of schools. It further emphasises the relative poverty and the poor quality of education as the key factors contributing to precipitous
decline in enrollment rates and school dropout. (Less)
