What is Education?

What is Education?

Education is a simple and at the same time complex concept. In the other pages of this site you will learn why education is simple and why it is also a complex concept at the same time. But before going deeper into the the concept of education, let us first try to define education. According to  Wikipedia.Org,  

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

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