Education

Education, best described as the process of imparting or receiving knowledge, is one of the highest priorities on the global agenda.

Education can take place in formal and informal settings, however, schools and learning institutions are the primary mediums through which people receive an education in modern society. Reading and writing are the foundations of formal education. “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” - Nelson Mandela.
