According to Bernard (1999) - The quality of education builds the future and strengths the capacities of the children to act progressively and build the useful skills and appropriate attitudes which can give the safety, security and healthy interaction.
According to Adams, 1993 –the quality of education is to build the efficiency, effectiveness, equity for the learning abilities of the students. The quality of education can be reflected by
- Learners from well-nourished families
- Safe and healthy environments
- Advanced and modern learning environment
- Building of skills and attitudes of the students
According Motala, (2000); Pipho, (2000) - the quality of education is also reflected by the global impacts where the liberation has exposed the systems to the wider environments.
According to Adams (1993) - The local environment is important to build the ethics of development.
According to Motala (2000), Beeby, (1966), Benoliel, O’Gara & Miske, (1999)- The objective of education in school should meet goals we set for our children our community, our country and ourselves
According to Willms, (2000) - The impact of parent’s education on children’s learning ability is high. In one study, children whose parents had primary school education or less were more than three times as likely to have low test scores or grade repetition than children whose parents had at least some secondary schooling.
Acceding to Carron & Chau, 1996- The parent’s education helps to build the better interactions with the children and their income can help them to grow in a better a way.
According to Fuller -1999 - The effects of schools in poor areas can often outweigh the impact of family background and practices
According to Fuller 1999 - The physical learning environments are important and the modern and well-equipped buildings and open-air gathering places give the impact to the quality of education in schools. The quality of school facilities seems to have an indirect effect on learning, an effect that is hard to measure.
According to Carron & Chau –( 1996).- A study in India, however, sampled 59 schools and found that of these only 49 had buildings and of these, 25 had a toilet, 20 had electricity, 10 had a school library and four had a television. The quality of the learning environment was strongly correlated with pupils’ achievement in Hindi and mathematics.
According to Sutton (1999) - Although curricular reform and other issues remain to be acted upon but still girls’ achievement has not yet reached the level of boys’. This shows that efforts to improve the learning environment for girls and all students can lead to real results.
According to Craig, Kraft & du Plessis, (1998) -Well-managed schools and classrooms contribute to educational quality. Students, teachers and administrators should agree upon school and classroom rules and policies, and these should be clear and understandable. Order, constructive discipline and reinforcement of positive behavior communicate a seriousness of purpose to students
According to (Carron & Chua, 1996). The provision of health services and education can contribute to learning first by reducing absenteeism and inattention. Sick children cannot attend school, and evidence from China, Guinea, India and Mexico shows that children’s illness is a primary cause for absenteeism
According to UNICEF 2000 report - Quality content refers to the intended and taught curriculum of schools. National goals for education, and outcome statements that translate those goals into measurable objectives, should provide the starting point for the development and implementation of curriculum
According to (Glatthorn & Jailall, 2000).. Curriculum should also provide for individual differences which should coordinate and selectively integrate subject matter, and focus on results or standards and targets for student learning
