Concept of Education Many a time, people find it difficult to define the term education because we learn on daily basis from people and things around us. Some people tend to look at education as attendance at school whereby a teacher is seen as offering assistance to a learner in the classroom. Leading out the goodness in humanity and creating an environment conducive to the formation of the learner – and transformation of the society – need to be the focus of education. Many scholars have come up with the definition of education, as in the examples below. i. Education is the aggregate of all the processes by which a child or young adult develops the abilities, attitudes and other forms of behaviour which are of positive value to the society in which he lives (Fafunwa, 1974). ii. Education is the process by which young people acquire the cultural heritage, knowledge, ideals and the civilization of the past so as to be able to take part in the civilization of the present and help build the civilization of the future (Yoloye, 1980). iii. Education is the process of acquiring and developing desired knowledge, skills and attitudes (Oluoch, 1984). iv. Education is a systematic training and instruction designed to transmit knowledge and develop skills in individuals (Ughamadu, 1992).
