Many thanks to those of you who allowed me to use your photos on a recent teaching visit to Uganda, the kids loved them and were so excited at seeing England! The visit was amazing, this is one little girl who was sent home from school as her parents had no money for the fees, she spent the whole day watching through the fence (in between being sent away by the armed guard) another world in more ways than one!

This is so sad!! To think how many children in this country 'play' truant and are proud of the fact. You've captured so much in this one image - perhaps you should do the rounds in U.K. schools and show the other side of the coin!!

I have read your thread and seen this.

I am full of admiration for you and this is a very thought provocking shot.

Doesn't it make you want to help.

I agree that you should do the UK schools rounds. Certainly should be a government sponsored initiative, or at least the lottery instead of that running race thing down south.

Who said journalism is dead.
Excellent shot heightened even more so with the caption.
The only positive way to help these children is through education, and that, as you say, has to be paid for. Having armed guards around the school raises some sensitive questions.
