Education is the process by which an
individual is encouraged and enabled to fully develop his or her potential; it
may also serve the purpose of equipping the individual with what is necessary to
be a productive member of society.
The term education is often used to refer to formal education. However, the
word broader meaning covers a range of experiences, from formal learning to the building of understanding and knowledge through day to day experiences.
Ultimately, all that we experience serves as a form of education.
