WHAT IS EDUCATION? Why is it Necessary?

Back to browse - Back to normal view

Education in its general sense is a form of learning in which the knowledge, skills and habits of a group of people are transferred from one generation to the next through teaching, training, or research. Any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational.

A right to education has been recognized by some governments. At the global level, Article 13 of the United Nations' 1966 International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights recognizes the right of everyone to an education.

Education is the action or process of teaching someone the knowledge, skill, and understanding that one receives from attending a school, college, or university.

Would it not seem logical therefore that Education about our most precious asset – Our Body – should start from the earliest age in the school systems?
