What comes to your mind when you think about your primary education?
What comes to my mind really is the importance of primary education in the life of a child because the primary school you go to is the background for what you do later. In the primary school, you are dealing with children that are very impressionable so whatever you say to them is accepted as the gospel truth. So if you are involved with primary education, you must be conscious of that. At that age, you hear the children tell even their parents, “That’s not what my teacher said.”
