Education is the transmission of civilization
Education refers to the process of learning and acquiring information .Education can be divided into two main types :formal learning through an institution such as school and the other is self taught learning or what is often termed life experience .Generally education is important for learning basic life skills, as well as learning advanced skills that can make a person attractive in the job market .Education means the process of gaining knowledge, inculcating proper conduct and acquiring technical competency .It involves the cultivation of an innocent mind, the instilling of values and principles in the minds of children.It includes the development of skills along with the achievement of ones physical,mental and social development .To put it in technical term education consists of primary,secondary and higher education and ideally it never ends .The process of education that is believed to begin in the womb continues throughout life. Education moves us forward
Education not only creates a better human being but also contributes to the transformation of society .we summoned to take forward our community, village, city,state, world.but to get that we need tools .The tools to improve the world are want to see a more just world .Further more, the paradox that we find ourselves happy when we forgot our own self and focus on the well beings of others is true.working to improve the society helps us to develop our own capacities, and brings us peace and tranquility, although that is not the motive .Having said this,we should be mindful that each of us has a double purpose in life, developing our own potentialities and bettering the kind of world we live in. And the best weapon to talk firmly in these two paths the answer lies in education.

Schools in South Africa are a unique kind of organisation, with clearly defined goals and policies. Schools function through a hierarchical structure of authority whereby every aspect of the school needs to function accordingly. Schools are also, a dynamic and ever- changing system continually responding to influences both externally and internally. In order for schools to render an effective service of education certain structures need to be in place, and effective undertakings of various management functions need to be prioritised (Naidu, 2008:74). ‘Educational organisations, are human endeavours’ (Owens and Valensky, 2011: 84), and to deal with them effectively is to deal with human social systems. Management effectiveness in schools relates to competencies, skills and approaches. However, school management teams interventions which are aimed at improving their current...

Science 1 in the Early Years
Assessment: Item 1- Views of teaching and promoting science of young learners
The pedagogy of play can be hard to understand and part of the reason for this is it’s so difficult to explain how children learn by play because play isn’t simply; it is complex. Each child begins their early childhood education with a set of skills and prior knowledge that is influenced by their family, culture and past experiences (Fellows &Oakley, 2010). The past knowledge should become the foundation for developing an understanding of scientific concepts (Duschl, Schweingruber & Shouse, 2007). Children are naturally inquisitive, creative and aware of the world around them (Campbell & Jobling, 2012). Play is an important development tool and an effective way to teach children scientific concepts while using their prior knowledge (Preston, Mules, Baker & Frost, 2007). Learning science through play shows children that science is useful and enjoyable and is a significant aspect of the real world (Bulunuz, 2013). This essay will review teaching science through play, theorists who support play and the way in which the Australian curriculum and EYLF support play pedagogy.

...INDIA'S GROWTH THROUGH ADVANCEMENT IN EDUCATION SECTOR
*Research scholar,sri Venkateshwara university,gajraula
**Supervisor, Maharaja agarsen college,Delhi university.
Education in India today is nothing like it was in Pre-Independence and Post-Independence Era. Education System in India today went through a lot of changes before it emerged in its present form. Presenteducation system in India is also guided by different objectives and goals as compared to earlier time. Present system of education in India, however is based around the policies of yesteryears. After independence, it was on 29th August 1947, that a Department of Education under the Ministry of Human Resource Development was set up. At that time the mission was the quantitative spread of education facilities. After, 1960’s the efforts were more focussed to provide qualitative education facilities. The present research focus on steps through which our indian education system had gone through. The basic moto of this research is to show that india has done serious efforts in education nd has shotremendous development but it is still lacking in comparison with developed nations. This study is an effort to suggest some measures for its improvement.

1. What is the purpose of education? To transmit culture? To provide social and economic skills? To develop critical thinking skills? To reform society?
I think that the purpose of education is to get the children ready for real life, and provide them the learning skills, and abilities that they will need.
2. What are schools for? To teach skills and subjects? To encourage personal self-definition? To develop human intelligence? To create patriotic, economically productive citizens?
Schools’ purposes are major in every culture all around the world. In my eyes, schools are to educate the general public, young or old for survival in the next chapter in their life, a degree. They are taught the basic skills and subjects to maneuver on to college, or to start life. After the basics, they are taught more in depth skills and subjects. Schools aren’t good just for that. In schools children also gain life long friends, experiences and learn the social skills they need in life.
3. What should the curriculum contain? Basic skills and subjects? Experiences and projects? Inquiry processes? Critical dialogues?
The curriculum should contain all basic skills and subjects, math, reading, language, writing, science, and geography. Then on a second level, to test the knowledge, and for student’s to learn from other students, projects should come in. As for experiences, I think that students that can relate, should share their...
...the students are motivated to learn, develop better, think creatively and have originality in thought.
Foundation areas are core areas in the growth and development of a school librarian, which allows the new role of the teacher librarian to develop a learning community to motivate students to learn. The main goal of the foundation areas are to develop creative, critical and original thinkers who will be able to better understand the school curriculum thereby achieving academic excellence which is the main philosophy of the education system. The library is often seen as the storehouse of knowledge in the school. Foundations in Education touch on four key areas each of which provides insightful information into the society, the individuals and their interactions with each other. The four main areas in Foundations in Education are psychology, sociology, philosophy and language. We will look at each in turn to see the benefits of Foundations in Education to create a learning community. The librarian has a difficult role in the school community as they are the ones to ensure that the current, relevant and insightful information is available on a wide range of topics that will assist students in the completion of the school curriculum ensuring that they acquire information to develop each individual full potential. In addition they are geared towards achieving the school’s motto for students to pursue excellence....
...motivation through the development of a shared vision, morality, loyalty, trust and communication.—as evidenced by changing their attitudes toward emancipation of the slaves. (Crowley, M .2001)
There are many leadership styles that are not as altruistic as the one adopted by Lincoln such as authoritarian, autocratic models aimed at increasing productivity in a top down, power driven relationship dynamic. As microcosms of society, school administrations often took on a similar role through the implementation of hegemonic hierarchical models of leadership. However, in 1980’s the education system was forced to restructure and adapt to meet the changing needs of a world of high technology, reduced budgets, changing demographics at schools, demands created by centralized curriculum and assessment policies (Dommock, 1995; Leithwood, 1994, 1996; Leithwood, Jantzi & Steinbach,1999). Consequently, many education administrators began to transform their schools into authentically democratic institutions based on a shared vision, empowerment and mutual growth to increase teaching and learning outcomes (Leithwood,1992). ). “As times change, what works for leaders changes also”(Stone, Patterson 2005).
In the ever increasing complexity of social, corporate and educational reform it can be argued that the only sustainable leadership is one that collaboratively builds the capacity of and value adds to the holistic and moral development of all members of...
...STUDY HISTORY OF EDUCATION DAVID E. MSHANA DEC. 2012 Education according to Nyerere (1967), refers to the transmission from one generation to the next the accumulated wisdom and knowledge of the society and to prepare young people for their future membership of the society and their active participation in its development. In other way it can be defined as a process of teaching, training and learning especially in schools or colleges to improve knowledge and develop skills. (Oxford Advanced learners Dictionary, 6th Edition). Education is the process of acquiring and developing desirable knowledge, specific skills, positive attitudes and values. (Thungu, J. et al, 2010) History is the study of the records of all past human experiences, as defined by a number of historians. It is concerned with political, social, economic, scientific, technological and cultural which have shaped and given birth to mankind. History of education can be defined as the study of the past development of educational systems, theories and institutions within the general historical framework of political, social, economic, scientific, technological and cultural change. (Thungu, J. et al, 2010) REASONS WHY STUDENTS’ TEACHRERS’ STUDY HISTORY OF EDUCATION First of all, studying history of education helps teachers to be in improving quality of education and strengthen professional competence....
...What is a school and what is it for?
1. Distinguish between education and schooling.
Answer: Education is a process of human growth by which one gains greater understanding and control over oneself and one’s world. It involves our minds, our bodies, and our relations with the people and the world around us. Education is also characterized by continuous development and change.

Schooling is a specific, formalized process, usually focused on the young, and whose general pattern traditionally has varied little from one setting to the next.
