‘Education for all’ and its purpose has been a contentious issue ever since it started being talked about not so long ago. The attempt was to make education a vehicle for preparing children for the economy and jobs, but now there is also an attempt to focus on education as a means of developing sensitive and concerned human beings; those who respect others and can show empathy. Woven into this has been a strand to promote the development of aesthetic abilities and a spirit of collaboration and cooperation, besides respect for working with the hands. This is not just for the sake of experience or creativity, but also for children to be able, in some way, to participate in something socially useful and productive.
