Education is one of the keystones of our society; without education, there would be no advanced level of business, no advancements in medicine, in culture, in politics, in mathematics and in almost all other fields. Education is defined as the process of educating people, for their own well-being and benefit, for the fulfillment of their potential. Education is not only for raising the standard of living and economic activity of a nation, but it also forms the base of ethical behavior, which is taught and learned from childhood.
Education includes imparting knowledge to students, and creating ways of learning and getting students to learn. Education helps people to determine what is right and wrong, and the good and evil that they can perform.Education includes teaching, training, practice, and supervised research. In education, we get kids from different backgrounds coming together and form groups based on common interests, ideas and goals. These groups bring together individuals with similar beliefs who are trying to solve some kind of problem.
This informal education in children is called formal education, while formal education is given by teachers, government, schools, universities and other bodies related to education.In the modern world, the informal courses of learning and teaching have been replaced by more formal methods of teaching and learning such as classroom teaching, the university teaching system, and higher education. The replacement of the informal courses and teaching by the formal methods has caused some changes in the mentality of people in the society.
People have become less involved in their daily work because they are absorbed with the more formalistic ways of living and working in the modern world. Therefore, with the changing mentality in the society, the need of higher education has gone up and is now required in the country.
