Education > Wiki


Education in the largest sense is any act or experience that has a formative effect on the mindcharacter, or physical ability of an individual. In its technical sense, education is the process by which society deliberately transmits its accumulated knowledgeskills, and values from one generation to another.

Etymologically, the word education is derived from educare (Latin) "bring up", which is related to educere "bring out", "bring forth what is within", "bring out potential" and ducere, "to lead".[1]

Teachers in educational institutions direct the education of students and might draw on many subjects, including readingwriting,mathematicsscience and history. This process is sometimes called schooling when referring to the education of teaching only a certain subject, usually as professors at institutions of higher learning. There is also education in fields for those who want specificvocational skills, such as those required to be a pilot. In addition there is an array of education possible at the informal level, such as in museums and libraries, with the Internet and in life experience. Many non-traditional education options are now available and continue to evolve. One of the most substantial uses in education is the use of technology. Classrooms of the 21st century contain interactive white boards, iPads, iPods, laptops, etc. Teachers are encouraged to embed these technological devices in the curriculum in order to enhance students learning and meet the needs of various types of learners.

A right to education has been created and recognized by some jurisdictions: since 1952, Article 2 of the first Protocol to theEuropean Convention on Human Rights obliges all signatory parties to guarantee the right to education. At world level, the United NationsInternational Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights of 1966 guarantees this right under its Article 13.

Definitely an essential in life. I can't imagine a life without it! Yet, there are still plenty of people in this planet living life without proper education! If there is anything that's compulsory in a country, its more education than taxes. The two does (in some way) go hand in hand though.            Having said that, education needs to be a little more fun, enriching and stimulating than mere passing examinations! Adult education should be encouraged …
