Education is a discipline concerned with techniques of teaching and learning in schools or school-like settings, as opposed to numerous nonformal and informal socialising approaches (e.g., rural development projects and education through parent-child relationships). Education can be defined as the transmission of a society’s values and acquired knowledge. In this sense, it corresponds to what social scientists refer to as socialisation or enculturation.
Education is designed to guide them in learning a culture, moulding their behaviour in the ways of adulthood, and directing them toward their eventual role in society. In the most primitive cultures, there is often little formal learning—little of what one would ordinarily call school or classes or teachers. Instead, the entire environment and all activities are frequently viewed as school and classes, and many or all adults act as teachers.
As society becomes ever more complex and schools become ever more institutionalized, the educational experience becomes less directly related to daily life, less a matter of showing and learning in the context of the workaday world, and more abstracted from practice, more a matter of distilling, telling and learning things out of context. This concentration of learning in a formal atmosphere allows children to learn far more of their culture than they are able to do by merely observing and imitating.
Formal, non-formal, and informal education are the most common types of education. Formal education occurs at educational and training facilities, is usually structured by curricular goals and objectives, and is normally supervised by a teacher. Formal education is compulsory in most regions up to a specific age and is generally separated into educational stages such as kindergarten, primary school, and secondary school. Nonformal education occurs in addition to or instead of formal education. As society places a greater emphasis on education, it attempts to define the overall objectives, substance, organisation, and techniques of education. Literature gets saturated with parenting advice for the next generation. In short, educational ideologies and theories emerge.
