Concept of Education




Concept of Education:

The term education literally refers to the actualization of the potentials of an individual. It involves a learning process to gain knowledge and skills not just to survive but to live life more meaningfully Modern societies are characterized by a complex division of labour, separation of work from home, need for specialized learning and skill attainment. In such a context, education needed to be formal and explicit. Modern societies have evolved a distinct institution of education to fulfill basic goals –

  1. To create and disseminate ideas and knowledge.

  2. To develop skills to use existing knowledge for the betterment of society.

Education is thus a broad process of learning that broadens an individual’s cognitive horizons and develops in her/ him the skills to choose, evaluate, and add to existing knowledge.
