Education is a life-long process that begins at birth and takes place in the family and community as much as in school. Education helps children to acquire knowledge, skills and attitudes that will be useful throughout their lives. Education also unlocks children's potential and contributes to the development of societies generally. Education played very vital role in the building of a nation as well as the basic tool for the development of any society. In most democracies it is deemed a basic right. It is an established fact that only those nations, having sound educational systems, have made progress. According to Nelson Mandela, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
