Learning activity details

In Mauritius, it is strongly believed that private tuition is a sine qua non condition for success, so this leads to an abuse. I myself was a victim because my parents being poor could not pay tuition fees, like this there are so many who are penalised and ultimately get trapped into a vicious circle of poverty. I was lucky enough to struggle and successfully reach Royal College thanks to free education granted by the Father of The Nation, Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam. I was determined to come up with an alternative to the actual educational system that is why I opted for a career as a primary school teacher.
