Education is not just about the subjects that are learnt and taught in school.
Becoming educated is not restricted to being in school and then in college, gathering certificates and feeling proud of oneself. its a lifelong exercise that can be unbelievably exciting if only we wish to jump onto the train of experience and take a trip to every conceivable place on earth. Now we know that this cannot be done literally, so how do we mange it, first in School and then we go through the journey of life.
First, we all have to be on the same page: children, teachers and parents have to understand that education is not restricted to lesson taught in the classroom from text book. Parents and teachers must encourage children to ask as many questions as they can.
The thirst for knowledge is not restricted to the child. It is also essential for parents and teachers to keep adding to their own knowledge bank by keeping their eyes and ears open and by reading as much as possible and ensuring that children develop.
