Community Society Population is one of the most essential characteristicsof a community irrespective of the consideration whether people have or do not have conscious relations. Population is important but here the population is conditioned by a feeling of oneness. Thus conscious relations are more important than the mere population for a society. A community by nature is discrete as compared with society. By nature and character society is abstract. For community area or locality is very essential and that perhaps is the reason that the community had a definite shape. Society is area less and shapeless and for a society area is no consideration. A community has comparatively narrow scope of community sentiments and as such it cannot have wide heterogeneity. A society has heterogeneity and because of its wide scope and field can embrace people having different conflicts. The scope of community is narrow than that of society because community came much later than the society. Though the primitive people might not have understood the importance of community but they realized that of the society and lived in it. The society has much wider scope as compared with the community. In a community every effort is made to avoid differences or conflicts and to bring likeness as nearly as possible because cooperation and conflicts cannot exist in a community. In a society likeness and conflict can exist side by side andin fact the scope of society is so vast that there is every possibility of adjustment.

The academic year runs from september through to july 6 days a week, and the teaching medium is either Arabic or Hebrew. Education is compulsory and free (although some materials must be bought).
This is one of the reasons why societies try to evolve education systems and policies that would meet the needs, beliefs, attitudes and the aspirations of their people

Our collective knowledge has been built up for hundreds of years because those who are educated pass along their knowledge. This will serve as an inspiration to you and share it with your children to inspire them to become educated.
