Sorry to say it, but many teachers in what was English colonies.

They do not understand the many tricks and advantages from the metric system.

It is important that the children from the very beginning get a teacher capable of explaining the enormous advantages of the metric system and show how to multiply and divide by 10, 100 – –

In official textbooks, both from Tanzania and Malawi, I have seen how the autoer used the old “colonial methods” to complicate the use of the metric system.
