There are several primary schools under the governmental authority across the nation where they are trying to develop the standards of their educational facilities. Some of the main factors that come into consideration are the health and the education quality of their students.

And on the other hand these students also lack a lot of decisive educational knowledge, which would be affecting them in their future career planning.
