in rural villages in Colombia. Two days a week, Soriano travels to select remote villages up to four hours each way. At each village, some 40-50 youngsters await their chance to get homework help and learn to read. According to CNN, Soriano’s hope is that people will understand the power of reading and that communities can improve from being exposed to books and diverse ideas. Soriano is quoted as saying about education “That’s how a community changes and the child becomes a good citizen and a useful person”.

nefits of poor children attending school in the developing world
The benefits of education are surmountable. The reading and arithmetic children study today, leads to educated and functioning adults in a society later. With education, people in general have better health. People are able to prevent disease and use health services effectively. bAs an example, young people who have completed primary education are less than 50% as likely to contract HIV as those with little to no schooling.
As we know here in the states the more education one receives the greater their earning potential. In developing countries people with one additional year of schooling earn 10% higher wages. So what does higher wages mean? Higher wages translates to national economic growth. To achieve continuous and rapid growth is impossible without reaching an adult literacy rate of at least 40%.
Many developing countries have taken positive steps of making education a priority. For example, In postwar Korea in the 1950s, the average annual income was only $890, Korean families and the government, with help from the U.S. tripled spending on education. Investments in teachers and basic schools contributed to a more productive labor force. Today Korea boasts almost 100% primary school enrollment and an average income of $17,000 a year.
Education works, but how do we pay for it?
How to pay for the education
The U.S. and other countries allocate direct financial assistance for activities such as building schools, training teachers, and providing school supplies. On average, between 2002 and 2004 the U.S. dedicated $256 million per year to basic education in poor countries.
Aside from government spending, there are other innovative alternatives. Private sector education in poor countries has routinely outperformed the free, taxpayer-subsidised version, according to James Tooley, a Bristish academic who advises a chain of low-cost for-profit schools in India. With this model teachers are held accountable by parents who have a monetary vested interest in their children’s education.

Giving an aim at right age
When I think of my childhood days, I am reminded of Shri Sivasubramania Iyer who taught me when I was studying in 5th class at the age of 10. He was one of the very good teachers in our school. All of us loved to attend his class and hear him. One day he was teaching about bird's flight. He drew a diagram of a bird on the blackboard depicting the wings, tail and the body structure with the head. He explained how the birds...
