My mom was a farm primary school teacher. It was very rare for a child to be the "right" age for a class. There were plenty of 15-16 year olds, and some 17 and even 18 year olds in class.

I remember how she told me once that the one guy said something similar to "jou ma se p..." and was then stabbed with scissors in the head.

Also, how after the police came to give their rape/molestation talk at school, there were suddenly a lot more reports of it happening among the learners. Of about 50. Whether the talk was inspirational in the wrong way, or it just got the kids to speak up more.
In a Primary School? :eek:

Kids on farms usually start school very late, if at all...
I remember that the started more or less the same age as most other kids.
Many of them are much less intelligent, for whatever reasons. One of them being that many parents drink while pregnant.
The environment they grow up in is also not conducive to learning.
Many of the teachers don't really care about the work they do.

Maybe not all of them. It may also depend on area. A few I went to primary school with were much older. Or maybe things have changed.
