Full Answer

Situations like teen pregnancy, gang violence, theft, drug use, and other crimes happen more frequently in noneducated settings. This is also partly due to the fact that these areas are poverty stricken because a lack of education decreases the jobs that people can get. Just having basic skills such as reading and math can help a person with employment.

Other effects that happen because of a lack of education is a decline in health. According to the National Longitudinal Mortality Study, a year of education increases life expectancy by 0.18 years. People are more apt to not take care of themselves because they are less educated about topics such as family planning and proper hygiene.
