Education in the largest sense is any act or 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 a part of life that no one can ever take away from a person (Molstad). "Education not only gives you the skills and knowledge to be a contributing citizen, but also, education gives you the worth and self esteem so you see yourself as a valuable person" (Molstad). That is the importance of education as a whole, but there is more to it.

We wouldn't understand what the radio or television announcers were saying if they used large, proper words or technical terms. If we didn't have an education, how would we know about the development of the Berlin situation and the Communistic dictatorship trying to take over parts of the free world?
