Understanding the Essence and Types of Education

“A room without books is like a body without a soul”

What is education?

It is a process of imparting and updating knowledge, making us civilized in lives. We get the power of self-realization. We train ourselves for acquiring knowledge in particular skills to become a professional. It is a source which renders us the confidence in lives.

I would like to share a sort story to demonstrate the importance of education.

There was a boy who was well educated and knowledgeable was living with his parents. The family was well to do. After completion of his education, he wanted to select his own career. But the parents restricted him to do so. They urged him to do some other which they were fond of. They threatened and beat him to change his mind. He did not like and walked out of the house without having a penny and had nowhere to lay his head, believing his education and having faith in God.

He went and stayed in one of the relative houses. He started seeking for the job which he preferred and got the same within two days.

The above story states that the education confers us confidence in life to lead our lives with our feats of strength.

Let us discuss about types education!

Types of education:

  1. Formal
  2. Informal
  3. Non formal

  1. What is formal education?

It is an organized and regulated system which follows a curriculum and academic certificates and degrees. This system, we can see in schools and colleges.

  1. What is informal education?

A lifelong learning process, whereby each individual acquires attitudes, values, skills and knowledge from the educational influences and resources in his or her own environment and from daily experience. There are so many leaders and the greatest personalities succeeded in their lives without formal education in the world.

“Nature is the best teacher. We can learn a lot from the nature”

  1. What is nonformal education?

Education that happens outside the formal school system. Non-formal education is often used interchangeably with terms such as community education, adult education, lifelong education and second-chance education. This system has been established by the government to eradicate illiterates in countries.

Now a days, we have a lot of chances to educate ourselves, age does not matter in education. But interest is required to acquire knowledge.

Utilize! Become a literate!

“Education would be much more effective if its purpose was to ensure that by the time they leave school every boy and girl should know how much they do not know, and be imbued with a lifelong desire to know it”
