"This report is the result of a survey of 500 children, aged from 7 to 14 years of age from ten regions in Mainland Tanzania. This study, the first of its kind for Tanzania, gives children's opinions on issues relating to education : school services such as health care, water supply and food, textbooks, teachers, discipline, extra charges and their desired improvements to education. In the second component of the survey researchers sought children's opinions on their role in society particularly their social and economic contributions to their families and communities, their desire for and access to information, to informal and formal ways they are listened to, and their aspirations for the future."
