Video: India's begging schools

Indian parents unable to send their children to school are training them to beg.




    Some poor families in India, unable to send their children to school, have taught them to work as street beggars.

    Their parents argue that such an unconventional education makes sense as the children will not get the opportunity to do anything else.

    Al Jazeera's Prerna Suri attended a begging for beginners class in a village in eastern India.
