Back to school

by Susanne Stoop


"Writing lessons" by Marc Apers


Some children can not wait to be allowed to go to school. Others find it a nuisance, something they have to endure, since there is no other option then to go to school.

Especially children in developing countries want nothing more than to go to school. No matter how primitive their school is, they are happy and proud to go. They want to learn, progress and find a way out of poverty in which they grow up.

The photos on this list show their enthusiasm and interest - although sometimes distracted by the photographer. They also show that the circumstances under which children go to school are rather grim. And although all attention is for the children, lets not forget the teachers!

In the list there is only one  photograph of a classroom in a so called rich country. It's a pity I couldn't find more in the 1x gallery. May be I overlooked some!
