Despite, 72% of the teachers searched information prior to informing the classmates, 40% faced questions they were unable to answer. Furthermore, 27% of teachers felt insecure and 33% stated they had insufficient resources to address the situation. The teachers were satisfied with the content (100%), duration (98%) and level (98%) of the educational session. Post-education, the teachers felt more secure and comfortable in: addressing cancer to the classmates (83%), having the child with cancer in class (61%), and in cooperation with the family (73%).
