Research has shown that children who have experienced abuse or neglect are more likely to have learning difficulties, perform poorly in school, and experience behavioral problems.
They are also more likely to struggle with mental health problems such as anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which can further hinder their academic performance.
The impact of child abuse on education and future prospects can be long-lasting and far-reaching.
Children who do not receive a good education are less likely to have the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the workforce and may be at a disadvantage in terms of career opportunities and earning potential.
They may also be more vulnerable to poverty, homelessness, and other negative outcomes.
It is important for parents, caregivers, and the community to be aware of the potential impact of child abuse on a child’s education and future prospects, and to take steps to prevent abuse and provide support and resources to children who have experienced abuse.
