Poverty, illiteracy and ignorance go hand in hand. Poor Countries have no money to set up a good education system. Without education, the population uneducated and ignorant. Ignorant people see no way to escape from poverty. Poor people can not afford to send their children to school. They can not pay taxes. And governments of poor countries have no funds for basic services like education and health. Even supports the government of a country the right of children to education and commits itself to free and compulsory education for all 6-16 year olds.
