The Meaning of Education African Proverbs

Five African proverbs on the meaning of education.


 Effective education develops our internal compass that guides us through life.  Education includes the formal and informal experiences that train, discipline, and shape the mental and physical potentials of the maturing person. Informal education occurs in a spontaneous, unplanned way. 

Experiences that educate informally occur naturally; someone to stimulate specific thoughts or to impart specific skills does not design them.Formal education is a purposeful, planned effort to impart specific skills or information. Formal education is a systematic process in which someone designs the educating experiences. 

Tests do not measure intelligence or ability; they do not measure how the mind processes information. The goal of education should be to inspire a lifetime of the love of learning.
