  • The business of educating man is definitely rooted in the general aims of education.
  • The function of the educative process is to shape a particular individual belonging to a given nation, a given social structure, a given historical age.
  • Education Process by means of which man is shaped and brought toward fulfilment
  • The task of formation which adults intentionally undertake with regard to youth Education
  • The special task of schools and universities Education
  • Education  is vital  knowledge and skills that we learned  what we remember after we forgot everything that we learned  involves transfer of values from one generation to the next
