A comprehensive study was conducted in primary schools of the Southern region of Botswana, to determine the attitudes of the main stakeholders of primary education (i.e. teachers, pupils and parents) regarding the importance of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in primary education. The Office of Research and Development (ORD), University of Botswana, funded the study. The findings showed that the majority of teachers, pupils and parents, in both government and private schools, value and support the idea of ICT in primary school education although the private schools had an edge over government schools in most cases. However, the challenge is to make information technology accessible to all primary schools and to develop a conducive environment by planning and providing the required infrastructure and resources. The findings of the study led to a few recommendations.
