Education has been a strategy employed by every society, whatever be its level of development, to make an individual a self sufficient and competent person and also a socially useful and productive adult member of the society. In fact it is almost a part of one’s living and growing up. Every society has had its own traditions and institutionalized ways of education, both formal and informal.
Education tries to make people know how to approach and understand by providing valid knowledge. Equally important, that people should know that they do not know certain things and what they think, they know is not correct. In education, the emphasis is on building up the individual, his perceptions, emotions and activities through knowledge, expand and extend the spatial and temporal spans of consideration and concern particularly, in as much as they influence and build up a mind set of avoiding impulsive actions and immediate judgements without adequate knowledge.
While instruction does not provide any choice and while training helps to do what is apparently the best way of doing as decided by others, education helps you to become aware of identifying different choices available and then choose what is the best among them.
Instruction tells you what to do, training tells you how best to do and educations tells you to choose the best way of doing. This involves a participation in the decision making as well as accepting responsibility. This ability or capacity to analyse, exercise choice and do the best has become necessary in view of increasing diversions and complexities in every sphere of action.
Education is highly futuristic in orientation. Instruction tells you to do, training prepares you to perform and education helps you to choose the best way of performing and doing and continuing to do that and trying to do better.
