It is a given, I think, that children learn better a subject they are interested in
It also helps their learning if teacher is good and the children enjoy going to school
Not all do, sadly
Some are bullied at school. Some by their fellows, Some by their teachers
These pupils, if they are afraid to go to school, will not do well at all in class
Fortunately, there are other teachers, like Abdul Malik, a 40-year-old primary school teacher in Malappuram, Kerala, who is dedicated to making learning for his pupils an interesting and enjoyable experience and goes to extraordinary lengths to reach school each day !
