The results of the study:
Children born third and subsequent in large families are forced to put more effort into advancement and self-identification, their ability to get quality education in a family or extra-family forms are much lower than the first children’s or children’s living in “small” families.
One of the most important factors influencing the emergence and removal of barriers to the education of children from large families is household income. It determines the possibility of obtaining high-quality pre-school, school and additional education, as well as the possibility of homeschooling and attracting specialists for it. Another factor in removing barriers for children in this category may be the help of actors interested in large families (government agencies, non-profit and charitable organizations).
