Wow! That is a deep question! I wonder how many responses you will get to this one? For me education is learning. It never stops, because there is always more to learn. (The more I know, the more I know I don't know!) It is always varied, because there are so many things to learn. It is always equal opportunity--not restricted by age, socio-economic level, gender, religion, nationality, etc. It is not gradeable, although teachers and schools love to try. It has nothing to do with I.Q. Anyone can learn at any time. It is fascinating, wonderful and inspiring. It keeps you young.

What ever molds your mind and open ups dimensions of the knoledge (not only information) in the consideration of betterment of life and other human fellows and society is generaly known as a base of conceptual definations of the education! I think regarding learning process and believe that the urge of learning should lead the education and when we talk about such thing, learning becomes priority and leading force for the concern person and educating him or her! There is one practical aspect also mentioning life and earning with civic senses and behavioural part of social life! What ever promots that with new ideas with traditional respect is also called Education!
