Best Answer

yes. teaching and education was very important. there were three types of schools music, sports, and general. poor families couldn't afford school. sport school was only for boys. music schools taught singing, poetry, and playing the lyre. general schools taught reading, writing, and arithmetics. boys began school at age seven and left at 18 to start their military training.
