The Meaning of Education African Proverbs

Five African proverbs on the meaning of education.


Effective education develops the 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. 

Africa has some of the world’s most glaring education inequalities. All too often, children who are born poor, female, or in rural or conflict-affected regions, face an extreme disadvantage in education. 

Many of the children in school are receiving an education of such poor quality that they are learning very little. More than 600 million Africans still do not have access to electricity, and the number is set to grow in the coming years since by 2050 more than one in four people on our planet will be African. "Africa’s future is in the hands of women. Equal education for girls, at all three education levels, is the critical issue” - Olusegun Obasanjo
