Ar­ti­cle III, Sec. 21 of the Ed­u­ca­tion Act of 1982 states the ob­jec­tives of the el­e­men­tary ed­u­ca­tion , These are to:

Pro­vide the knowl­edge and de­velop skills , at­ti­tudes, and val­ues es­sen­tial to per­sonal de­vel­op­ment and nec­es­sary for liv­ing in and con­tribut­ing to a de­vel­op­ing and chang­ing so­cial mi­lieu

Pro­vide learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences which in­crease the child’s aware­ness of and re­spon­sive­ness to the changes in and just de­mands of so­ci­ety; and to pre­pare him/her for con­struc­tive and ef­fec­tive in­volve­ment;

Pro­mote and in­ten­sify the child’s knowl­edge of iden­ti­fi­ca­tion with, and love for the na­tion and rhe peo­ple to which he be­longs; and

Pro­mote work ex­pe­ri­ences which de­velop the child’s ori­en­ta­tion to the world of work and cre­ativ­ity and pre­pare him­self/her­self to en­gage in hon­est and gain­ful; work.

Ed­u­ca­tional aims and ob­jec­tives are but goals to be at­tained. The de­gree of at­tain­ment de­pends upon the ma­te­ri­als and the meth­ods of in­struc­tion em­ployed. In other words, the cur­ricu­lum and the teach­ers are fac­tors too im­por­tant to be over­looked. The de­ter­mi­na­tion of our cur­ric­ula and text­bools which are the main source, although not the only sorce, of knowl­edge and in­for­ma­tion for the stu­dents, have for years un­der the re­spon­si­bil­ity of such gov­ern­ment agen­cies as the De­part­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion.
