Education in the largest sense is any experience that has a formative effect on the mind, character or physical ability of an individual. In its technical sense education is the process by which society deliberately transmits its accumulated knowledge skills and values from one generation to another.
Education is the first and the utmost necessity of all human beings. It cannot be achieved in an overnight. Rather it is a lifelong process. It begins at birth and continuous throughout the life. It includes all those experiences which the human beings have as a result of their interaction with their surroundings. John Dewey has defined education as “the process of living through a continuous reconstruction of experiences and the development of all those capacities in the individual which will enable him to control his environment and fulfil his possibilities”. Education helps in the development of the society and also helps to achieve a better social order. Historically education is regarded as an instrument of development and a factor of social change.
