Laika Nampiina, P.4, St. Angella’s Primary School Kampala
A teacher is more important because it is a teacher who teaches the doctor. We cannot have a doctor without a teacher.
Mwamina Kiiza, P.5; 10; Soroti Primary School
Doctors are usually smart when going to work yet most teachers are shabby, especially science teachers. So, guess who my favourite is!
Shadia Nambowa, P.7; 13; All Saints Primary School
A teacher is better because he/she gives you the first advice on what to do and a doctor follows.
Patricia Nalunkuuma, P.7; Namagunga Boarding Primary School
Teachers are more knowledgeable than doctors. A teacher has knowledge about politicians, nurses and other professions yet doctors only treat patients.
Sauda Mubarak, P.7; 12; St. Angella’s Primary School
Doctors put on uniform; so, it is easy for one to identify with them but teachers do not. You can easily mistake any confused person on the street to be a teacher!
Shakira Nanyonga, P.4; St. Angella’s Primary School
Teachers are less educated compared to doctors yet our society needs people who have many books to help us.
Suzan Kwagala, P.6; 12; St. Angella’s Primary School
A doctor is more important because it is he who treats the teacher. Otherwise, without treatment, the teacher would die and, so, fail to teach.
Junior Tendo, 7; P.2; Entebbe COU Junior School
Teachers are greater because they are the ones who nurture a doctor right from childhood.
Trevor Mukisa, P.7; 12; St. Angella’s Primary School
Teachers are more important because they know our weaknesses and can advise us on what to do for a bright future.
Emmanuel Muwonge, P.2; All Saints Primary School
I think doctors are better because they get more money than teachers.
