Parents in these countries are most likely to help their kids with homework

Simona, an 11 year-old Roma schoolgirl who has been living in France for 6 years, does her homework in an hotel in the centre of  Nice, southeastern France, November 22, 2013. About fifty migrants from Romania were evicted from an illegal camp on November 27, 2013 where they had been living for 5 months. Six families with school-age children have received emergency housing at an hotel in Nice, as they wait for council housing. The other families have left the encampment with their belongings and will ask for a repatriation grant to Romania. Picture taken November 22, 2013.
