And You Thought You Were Too Old for School...

I'll never make the "too old" excuse again, I swear.

An 84-year-old Kenyan grandfather has joined primary school to learn to read, after the government introduced free primary education last year, Kenyan daily newspapers reported today. Kimani Murage, who has 30 grandchildren, said he hopes to become a veterinarian.

Good for him and good luck to him. Although, by the time he gets his vetrinary degree, I'm not sure I'd want him performing surgery on my dog.

Read the story.

If only young students in many rich countries across the world would understand the importance of education and learn harder. What he does is great and I wish him the very best!
