What is Education?
Education is the process of acquiring knowledge from teachers through their teaching. It
is the learning that one gets in schools. It mainly involves activities like imparting
knowledge by the teachers in classrooms, presentation of study materials by faculty
members, practical training in workshop by the instructor with the aim to train the student
in any particular subject matter and to give them practical exposure on the practical
aspects of real time situations, imparting him with the necessary technical skills required
to face the practical situations.

What is the need for Education?
Education is basic fundamental and an important ingredient required for development of
any society. Education of a person improves his social status, his mental status, his
knowledge, and his abilities to develop his skills to face practical lie situations. Education
is the only weapon with which one can kill ignorance and fight with unawareness. An
educated person can perceive things in a better way because he ahs a broad mind with
which he can see the things differently. He has a broadened mind with which he is able to
understand all the faces of any problem and then he will be able to handle the situation in
a better way.

Status of education is high in developed countries but if we talk about developing
countries the scene is just opposite. The literacy rate in developing countries like India is
very low. Though continuous efforts are being made by the government to achieve the
higher literacy rate but still the target is far to achieve and it will take years to achieve the
targets that are being set by the UNESCO and the government of these countries.

But why is this so? Why the literacy rate is not up to desired mark despite of continuous
efforts? What are the major barriers which prevent spread of education? The reasons can
be best described as:
Lack of Education and Infrastructure facilities which prevent the literacy rate from being
reaching up to desired mark, poverty in a major segment of population which prevents
the parents from sending their children to schools, Gender inequality that means female
are not given the same preference as the male which should not be and the traditional
caste practices which also plays a major role in preventing the education to reach the light
of education to reach all the doors.

If people from developing countries are able to overcome these barriers the education
level will definitely rise in these developing countries.
