What work did children have in England during World War 2?
Education was compulsory between the ages of 5 and at least 14, without exceptions. Kids under 14 were only allowed to do work that didn't interfere with their education. In urban areas they delivered newspapers and in rural parts they helped helped with agriculture (sometimes in breach of the law). The employment of children in factories and at any time between 7pm and 7am was strictly forbidden. All this was the same as before the war. Children were NOT used for the war effort.
