What is Education?

By ACS Distance Education on November 8, 2022 in Education & Jobs Success | comments
Effective education is a learning experience. Education brings about an inherent and permanent change in a person's thinking and capacity to do things.
Many people have a superficial concept of education, equating it with doing a particular course or obtaining a particular qualification, but that isn't real education. Obtaining a qualification is like doing a test to get a drivers license. Ewal education is like the driving lessons you do and the years of experience that follow to make you a better, more capable driver. These are two different things, and it's the education that matters most.

They are also a form of assessment that is valuable not only because they indicate your progress, but also because they provide a place for you to interact with a teacher.
