What is your understanding of education?


Bokor/Dimbie, to me education is more than to be "trained to fit into one' s society".
Going by its Latin etymology, "educo - educere ", I'll not hesitate to define education more
as to lead out of "darkness". If one does not know something, one is shrouded in darkness - one is, to put it mildly, just ignorant.
The sad fact of the matter is that there are lots of us walking around in total darkness.
What we don't know now in 21st century Ghana far exceed what our forebears didn't know during their time.
