Combining Work and School: The Dynamics of Girls’ Involvement in Agricultural Work in Andhra Pradesh, India

Abstract: Child labour in India has long been the focus of research, policy concern and intervention. This article presents an analysis of children’s involvement in agricultural work, particularly cottonseed production, drawing on evidence gathered for Young Lives in 2007 and 2008. In parts of Andhra Pradesh, children work in cotton fields for two or three months of the year, with marked gender and age differentiation. In the mid‐1990s, there was reportedly a cultural as well as an economic basis for children’s work in … Show more

“…However, Omonkhodion and Uchendu's [22] qualitative study prioritises the parents' perception on child labour practices in Nigeria using qualitative interviews. Moreover, Morrow and Vennam [21] and Togunde and Carter [23] chose to only conduct interviews with children regarding their work and schooling.

They work on commercial crop farms (Morrow and Vennam 2010;Das et al 2013) and in traditional households (Adonteng-Kissi 2018). In the literature, there is debate around the difference between child labor and child work.…”

Children are involved in cotton seed pollination work which means they miss school for 2–3 months each year, although this declined between 2007 and 2008 (Morrow and Vennam, ). A new local secondary school has recently opened, and by 2010 children were attending school regularly.…”
