·Education for female children in poverty family among the rural migrant population
In recent two decades, a big amount of rural children as well as their families move from rural areas to towns and cities in the waves of urbanization in China. Currently, there are about 150 million migrants in China, out of which 20 million are children, accounting for 20%. In the process of immigration, there are great changes in their way of working, way of living among the migrants and their families. Children are the group of people who is most affected. In such circumstances, no matter parents or families, or society, they are not ready for how to well develop those children. In this regards, these children are facing numerous problems in livelihood, education and development.
Although the Chinese government has remitted the tuition fees for children in the phases of compulsory education in rural area, but those children who are moving to the city with their families have not benefited from this policy. The livelihood status of the female children in those poor migrant families is worrying. Their rights and interests are often the victim of the family.

TurboTax Deluxe includes free federal eFiling and helps owners, buyers, and charitable givers maximize deductions. Your last choice is based on what you’re feeling is necessary to you. In my case it is value it since I get to know extra about my own funds and letting someone else do it leaves me in the dead of night. I learned this when I began my enterprise and used an accountant for the enterprise filings. At one level I began doing my enterprise tax filings myself too (with TurboTax). That helped me discover necessary issues about my cash-circulate that my accountant by no means delivered to my attention.
