What is true education?

Education is the process of easing learning, or the acquisition of knowledgeskillsvaluesbeliefs, and habits. Educational methods consist of teachingtrainingstorytellingdiscussion, and directed research. Education regularly happens under the guidance of educators, however, learners can also educate themselves. Education can occur 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.


Any nation’s economic and social power is generally a result of what its ‘umbrella of education’ relates what kind of education are their children getting at home, away from home, in, formal setups and sometimes in, informal setups? Does it lead to growth and true empowerment, not just monetary, but balanced empowerment, without the need to resort to addictions or extremist behavior, or does it only follow routine techniques of dissemination of knowledge and skills?

What are the 3 types of education?

A child gets the education from his experiences outside the school as well as from those within on the basis of these factors. There are three classes of education,viz, Formal, Informal, and Non-formal.


Formal Education

The existing formal structure of education across many countries in the world is ever-present and necessary as it stands and has provided a firm foundation for innumerable students in the past and continues to give consistent and structured know-how to children and young adults, almost everywhere. Formal education provided by some reputed schools and universities in the world has contributed to particular successes across the world.


However, this kind of formalized education has a snag, too, because of restrictive parameters set within educational frameworks. This withdraws from a student’s independent development and could create hindrances. More flexibility in such fixed educational models is required because times are changing, the challenges are varied, unpredictable enmity conditions are taking shape, adversities can happen, imbalances do take place, and hostile conditions could develop. Opportunities are also transforming form as professions are diversifying as the world evolves.


Despite structured teaching and conformance to a formal syllabus, along with an emphasis on sports, or other co-curricular activities, it is apparent that a lot of successes in the world are also coming from creative thinkers, strong individuals, those who do not follow norms, are unconventional, those who have adapted to the changes that are continuously arriving in the world, and who in spite of the hurdles, have carved a niche of their own. They are those who have extra framed educational skill-set in their armor.


Formal program structures do give students a stable foundation from which to work, but they may not prepare them for out of the blue uncongenial, and demanding situations, which may arise in life. If we become aware of ‘everything’ in professional setups and at home, why are there so many self-help books in the world, so many new-age gurus, why do people learn meditation and other eastern philosophies, why do people take up specialized courses and acquire separate social skills, why are people opting for off-curriculum creative fields, why are there so many talented, business-oriented and creative personalities emerging in the world, who have pursued dreams and enhanced varied talents, which were probably not even taught in class?

These successes, in any amount, have come to individuals, because they strove to think uniquely and have been able to face the challenges life has thrown at them. Hence, formal education, though of import, is not the only answer.


What is true education?

True education is clearly the process of developing the ability to learn, apply, unlearn, relearn. Learning. Training and practice are crucial components of developing expertise in whatever human beings do.


What is the true purpose of education?

The purpose of education is to help instill curiosity and a love for learning in every child, so that they develop into young adults who contribute to humanity, follow their passions, and think for themselves, such that they leave school with a purpose and have the confidence to fulfill that purpose.


To What Extent Do Our Schools Provide A True Education?

I believe that our schools don’t prepare us for life in the adult world. The curriculum is outdated and teaching style doesn’t cater to everyone’s needs. In school, we don’t learn what we need to know, or anything that is applicable to modern-day life. Students these days aren’t taught how to pay taxes, register to vote, serve jury duty, take out a loan, or apply for a job. I believe that it is more important to know how to take care of myself than it is to know the quadratic formula. We spend hours memorizing dates and names of people and things that we don’t even need to know. Kids these days need to learn how to effectively function in the adult world, and school isn’t teaching us how to do that.
Every student is treated equally and graded on the way they interpret the information. Every student is different, so one teaching style for all students in all subjects is not a good idea at all. Some people are visual learners, some auditory, hands-on, and other different ways. Dealing with an unfamiliar teaching style gets worse as you progress through school. The speed of classes, as well as the difficulty level, increases, leaving kids behind. It’s important for teachers to understand that everyone is different. The number of successful students would increase greatly if the curriculum was catered to every student’s personal needs. This discrimination creates a negative cloud around the school, causing kids to resent it if they don’t understand the material. It’s not fair that kids in this day and age are expected to sit still and listen for 8 hours a day. It’s also not practical.

The modern world is very different now then it was ten years ago. Work environments now are much more collaborative, flexible, and moving in a technological direction. School is an extremely rigid, close-minded establishment. Students are told exactly what to do when to do it, and how to do it. Most teachers try to ignore the existence of the internet instead of utilizing it. Students these days need to learn how to effectively navigate the web and use it to their advantage. The world is not based on memorization, and it’s important that students not get too used to it. The world is more progressive, and people have freedom within their work, so students need to be able to call the shots on theirs.

Don’t get me wrong, I love learning. However, the school has such a negative atmosphere. Students are forced to take classes that they have zero interest in, and they’re graded based on how similar their thinking process is to the teacher. I don’t think that it’s fair to make students who know their interests or career choice take classes they dislike. I’ve hated math since the dawn of time, but here I am, 11 years into math, struggling more than ever. I have no intention of going into a career in math, so why am I spending so much time learning it? Teachers have always taught us that good grades= success in life. Still, that is so far from the truth. There are trillions of successful people who have gotten terrible grades throughout school, so this logic is clearly flawed. Teachers should be talking to us about how skills like perseverance, integrity, and determination will take us farther than any 100 on a math test. School should be a positive place, but instead, it’s a high-stress environment that teaches us that our intelligence is defined by a number. Overall, schools these days don’t serve the goals of true education. They don’t prepare students for the adult world, cause stress, and depend on memorization rather than true learning, and keep us in an environment that does not mimic our future. True education consists of life skills, character building, and problem-solving. The best way to ensure student success is to prepare us for the adult world and put us in an environment that mimics it.

True beauty lies in education

what is true education?,What does the meaning of true beauty lies in education?

Education empowers a person by allowing a person to think. The qualifications someone gets can signal the thinking ability of a person, because, to obtain a qualification, one has to read, understand, analyze, and clarify information.  Through this effort that someone has put to getting the qualification, we expect that they would have sharpened their thinking skills. In this way, learning and teaching have to go hand in hand with education because it is through learning and teaching that someone performs the criteria to be granted a certain qualification. This has got me thinking again…I have met many people who have loads of qualifications but very little ability to apply that knowledge. They can reproduce learned information but they struggle when they have to think through a situation where it’s different from exactly what has been learned.


Viewpoints and Suggestions


Julie Hearn, an elegant author of many beautiful and intriguing young adult fiction novels, has some personal experiences to share and excellent advice to give regarding true education. She says, “Most of what I learned in school, in order to pass exams, I can no longer recall. My “true” education came from the books I took from the library – from stories that fed my imagination, and my soul, and taught me memorabletruths about the business of being alive. I believe now, more than ever, that the most important room in any school, in any part of the world, is still a library and that fiction – especially contemporary fiction written about, and for, children – plays a vital role in equipping young people with some of the psychosocial and interpersonal skills that can make the journey through lifeless bumpy.

When I go into schools, as a visiting author, I always ask if anyone has read, or is reading, anything astounding. I have seen 14-year-old faces gleam like beacons when I ask this and it is not over Shakespeare or Keats. It is across John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, Veronica Roth’s Divergent or Meg Rosoff’s, How I Live Now. A number of critically-acclaimed modern children’s books are, I know, being taught in secondary schools as companions to more obsolete set texts. History teachers are using young adult fiction to develop a more differentiated understanding of past events. My own historical novel, Hazel, is recommended reading for teenagers studying the suffragette movement.

It is the books that children read for pleasure that provide the most valuable lessons. When young readers link with a character in a story, when they follow that character through all manner of crises and see how that character copes—or sometimes fails to cope—they are learning life skills, vicariously. A story tackling, for example, peer pressure and drug abuse, in an intelligent, engaging, and accessible way, can shape a young reader’s attitudes, and boost healthy life choices more efficiently than any lecture.


Giving young people golden opportunities to express themselves creatively, without restrictions, is something else I feel strongly about. There is much-imposed conformity within the education system and too many boxes to tick. The UK based charity First Story supports and inspires literacy, creativity and confidence by placing established writers in challenging UK schools. I worked in one such school for a year, and was astonished, and moved, by how hungry my students were to express, or even find themselves, through writing that far from being prescriptive and target-driven could—and did—go anywhere. We need more, much more, of that.”

Parents Speak

A few concerned parents, especially, observant mothers of young children from various cities had the following suggestions to make, which they felt could be incorporated within formal educational organizations, mainly, schools.

They share, “It is a good idea to offer a wide variety of co-curricular activities in school, the exposure allows kids to explore various options and see if they are passionate about it or not. A good teacher or mentor can breathe life into a program, and rather, a bad teacher totally defeats the purpose. Meditation has supernatural benefits, and if the kids are introduced to it at an early age, it may work wonders in making the journey of life smoother. Educating children about the significance of healthy eating is also important where child obesity is on the rise. Small acts that show durability, persistence, integrity, togetherness, or honesty should also be rewarded so as to encourage children to be nice. Bullying in school also needs to be checked by creating awareness and implementing strong disciplinary consequences if children are found to bully others as it leaves a lasting impression on tender minds.”
“Indian schooling at early age should instil more of play-based learning; more involvement in curricular activities from the beginning, such as sports, music and the arts so that kids can develop those crucial skills they need to succeed in life, both professionally and personally. There should be more attention on the child’s development instead of competition and comparison. There should be an initiation of a few optional foreign languages for children to choose from. Teachers are responsible for passing on knowledge so their experience and skills should be evaluated well before they are in the role.”
“An ethics class in school focuses on the importance of strong values and ethics. It could be taught in the form of ‘Storytelling.’ There are also classes about healthy eating habits, self-protection classes—where they talk about appropriate and inappropriate touch. Apart from these, there should be a strong emphasis on the threat that our natural environment is facing. They should be made conscious of this from an early age and how they could contribute to conserving nature. These are also important donors to true education. Reading should be strongly emphasized upon. Every child, in the class, should talk about the book that they are reading—this would support in forming the habit of reading.”

The route to improve the current education system to produce true citizens of India?

The current education system that we have is not so successful. We all know what is the condition of schools and colleges in India..students just pass all the exams and hold degrees in their hands but don’t have any job. So to whom should we blame? Sometimes it the fault of the students that they do not study properly but on the other hand if the student even study properly but not able to hold any job because he doesn’t have proper and correct knowledge about that subject..then?

So our education system is also responsible for not generating true citizens of our country..

India should first of all try to provide good colleges…one of the major reason for bad colleges in India is due to corruption and carelessness by colleges..everyone just wants to make money..

After that the caste system should be abolished..everyone must get opportunities according to their hard work and talent

No unfair means to get a degree..strict education policies should be there.

Conclusion

Structure, organization, knowledge can be gained from formal education, but creativity, endeavor and enterprise come from an inner motivation and force within an individual. An education style, which will oppress a student will not help, but a system, where students are also accorded space to flow freely, to be more independent, should be allowed to exist. Therefore, those who allow self-education, flexible learning to co-mingle with formal education they have received, and are receiving have a lot to gain. And those who are totally reliant on self-education along with attributes like perseverance and will power and some other qualities are also going to derive much.

Life is manifold; it is unpredictable and truly extempore

To have the ability to maneuver life in the best possible manner, it is vitally necessary to not depend only on structured education, but to bring more flexibility to it through a consensus between responsible authorities, successful individuals from around the world, who wish to contribute, representation from parents and families, as well, and most importantly, keeping the interests of children in mind. Other forms of education like open education, E-learning and alternative education have also emerged, and positives from these should also be used to benefit children everywhere. A gradual change should be allowed to take place, where the best education possible is provided to children.

Students all over the world need more support than ever before to grow into complete personalities and true education could be the answer to this.Education is also a matter of choice and affordability. There are individuals who can’t afford any kind of formal education at all, for them true education comes from experiences and skills they gain from life, and in several cases, they find immense success. In terms of selections and prerogatives, following the philosophy of To Each His Own, some decisions and choices on education methods to be pursued are made by parents or children themselves, some early, some later, given circumstances and the will to follow through. Whatever track is chosen, it should be done keeping true education in mind, a concept, through which a child could achieve the best possible from life, and give back to the community, as well.

This is what ‘TRUE’ EDUCATION is.
