Education is the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, morals, beliefs, and habits. Educational methods include teaching, training, storytelling, discussion and directed research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of educators, however learners can also educate themselves. Education can take place in formal or informal settings and any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational. The methodology of teaching is called pedagogy. Formal education is commonly divided formally into such stages as preschool or kindergarten, primary school, secondary school and then college, university, or apprenticeship. There are movements for education reforms, such as for improving quality and efficiency of education towards applicable relevance in the students' lives and efficient problem solving in modern or future society at large or for evidence-based education methodologies. A right to education has been recognized by some governments and the United Nations. Global initiatives aim at achieving the Sustainable Development Goal 4, which promotes quality education for all. In most regions, education is compulsory up to a certain age.

Our expenditure plan funds anti-poverty programs, child care and education, it also includes resources to combat homelessness, support low-income working families and improve college readiness and enrollment.
The biggest problem with the education system is that it does not teach sycophancy, which is invariably required to grow in a private company and that's the main disconnect between an organization and an institution.
Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance.
You have to understand the group was cut off from society for 20 to 25 years, no education, no money, no job … Even if you wanted to leave, I do n’t think you had the choice or the means to leave … My mother definitely had suspicions, but I think it was very difficult to try and leave.
Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not it is the first lesson that ought to be learned and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly.
