Education is the soul key of a society and is the key for transformation of civilization. A grass-root level education is not only a prerequisite for building a strong base, needed for development of one’s own personality, but also is indispensable for scientific, technological, social and economic advancement of a country. “Primary education provides the foundation for all subsequent advancement in the education system. The most formative years in a young person’s development are spent at primary school” (Aibhistin, 2006). “Education investments in children have shown to have high returns” (Bhalotra & Zamora, 2008). Considerable consensus exists around the basic dimensions of quality education today, however quality education includes: 1. Learners whom are healthy, well-nourished and ready to participate and learn, and supported in learning by their families and communities. 2. Environments that are healthy, safe and protective and gender-sensitive, and provide adequate resources and facilities. 3. Content that is reflected in relevant curricula and materials for the acquisition of basic skills, especially in the area of literacy, numeracy and skills for life., and knowledge in such areas of gender, health, nutrition, HIV/ AIDS prevention and peace. 4. Processes through which trained teachers use child centered teaching approaches in well managed classrooms and schools and skillful assessment to facilitate learning and reduce disparities. 5. Outcome that encompass knowledge, skills and attitudes, and are linked to national goals for education and positive participation in society.
