Quality education is one that gives learners relevant and useful knowledge, attitudes and skills to enable them live better lives with competence and confidence. It is emphasized however, that in order to make this possible the learning process must be positive and helpful where learning takes place. The learners should not merely come to attend school but to get knowledge, attitude and skills that are relevant and useful to them (Veerle H. and Kim Walytens, 2001, Boyle and Bowden 1997).
