learning that knowledge and skill are channeled through teaching
Education is a learning of knowledge, skills, and habits of a group of people who are passed from one generation to the next through teaching, training, or research. Education often takes place under the guidance of others, but also allows self-taught. [1] The etymology of the word education itself comes from the Latin word ducare, meaning "to guide, direct, or lead" and prefix e, meaning "out". So education means "guiding out" activities. Any experience that has a formative effect on the way people think, feel, or act can be considered educational. Education is generally divided into stages such as preschool, primary school, high school and then college, university or internship.

A right to education has been recognized by several governments. At a global level, Article 13 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights recognizes the right of everyone to education. [2] Although education is mandatory in most places up to a certain age, the form of education with attendance at school is often not done, and a small percentage of parents opt for home-schooling, e-learning or similar education for their children.

Educational philosophy

Education usually begins when a baby is born and lasts a lifetime. Education can start from before the baby is born as is done by many people by playing music and reading to the baby in the womb in the hope that he can teach their baby before birth.

For some, the experience of daily life is more meaningful than formal education. As Mark Twain says, "I never let the school interfere with my education." [Need a reference]

Family members have a profound teaching role, often deeper than they realize, even though the teaching of family members goes unofficially.

Education function

According to Horton and Hunt, educational institutions are concerned with the following manifest functions:

Preparing community members to earn a living.
Developing individual talents for personal satisfaction and for the benefit of society.
Preserving culture.
Inculcate skills necessary for participation in a democracy.
Other functions of educational institutions are as follows.

Reduce parental control. Through education, parents' schools delegate their duties and authority in educating children to schools.
Provide means for insubordination. Schools have the potential to instill the value of dissent in society. This is reflected in the different views between schools and the community on something, such as sex education and open attitude.
Maintain a social class system. School education is expected to socialize to its students to accept differences in prestige, privilege, and status that exist in society. Schools are also expected to be a channel of student mobility to a higher social status or at least corresponding to the status of their parents.
Extend adolescence. School education can also slow down an adult's age because students are still economically dependent on their parents.
According to David Popenoe, there are four kinds of educational functions that are as follows:

Transmission (transfer) of culture.
Choosing and teaching social role.
Ensure social integration.
School teaches personality traits.
Sources of social innovation.
