Islamabad: According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan 36% believe the role of „elders‟ is more important than „books‟ in the education and grooming of children.
A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “Some people believe that whatever a child learns most of it comes from elders, whereas some believe it comes from books and school.
What is your point of view?” Responding to this 36% believe that elders play more important role in the education and grooming of children than books whereas 19% believe that children learn from books and school and 44% believe that both elders and books play equal role. However 1% did not give a view.
Question: “Some people believe that whatever a child learns most of it comes from elders, whereas some believe it comes from books and school. What is your point of view?”
The study was released by Gilani foundation and carried out by Gallup Pakistan, the Pakistani affiliate of Gallup International. The recent survey was carried out among a sample of 2698 men and women in rural and urban areas of all four provinces of the country, during November 06 – November 12, 2011. Error margin is estimated to be approximately ± 2-3 per cent at 95% confidence level.
