Education in Lithuania is free of charge and compulsory from the age of 6 or 7 to 16 years, as stated in the national Law on Education. [http://www.dol.gov/ilab/media/reports/iclp/tda2001/lithuania.htm "Lithuania"] . "Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor (2001)". Bureau of International Labor Affairs, U.S. Department of Labor (2002). "This article incorporates text from this source, which is in the public domain.] In 1996, the gross primary enrollment rate was 98 percent. Primary school attendance rates were unavailable for Lithuania as of 2001. While enrollments rates indicate a level of commitment to education, they do not always reflect children’s participation in school.
