What is the purpose of education?
12 Apr 2015
Education is the process of receiving or giving systematic instruction
The whole purpose of education seems to be defeated by various misconceptions in the current generation. These days education has become more synonymous to “grades”, “marks” or “ranks”. While I do not deny that these are important, I would strongly stand for the freedom in responsible education.
When I say responsible education, I mean to include social responsibility in to the education system. The basic idea behind responsible education is not generate or produce graduates but to build a community of educated people.
Finally, education should not be just books and blackboards. It should take them beyond the books and blackboards and empower them to make a living by using what they received during the process of education.
