"The process of imparting or obtaining knowledge or skill," according to the dictionary this is the definition of education. However, through the years education in the U.S. has included not only that but, intellectual discipline, education for citizenship, individual development, vocational training, and character education. What is the purpose of education?
In the early 1800's in the U.S., people believed that public education was the answer to unifying the nation. While now, in the twentieth century, education seems to have become the answer to drug and alcohol abuse, STD's, the reduction of traffic accidents, improved health and increased wealth of the community, and the elimination of poverty. As one can see there are a lot more goals now than there were then.
Although there are many differences between now and then, there are some goals that haven't changed. For example, the elimination of crime, and the development of career skills. These goals will probably remain a major factor of the aims of education.
