The Report of the Seminar: Education and Training

Much lip-service is paid to the concept of education. Philosophers advocate education as the means by which the full man is brought into being; economists accept education as a “merit good”, which the individual should have even if he is not willing to purchase it for himself; social reformers see in education the most effective means of stimulating social mobility without damaging the essential fabric of society. Unfortunately, in the course of the last century, “education” and “schooling” have become synonymous, to the detriment of the former and the enhancement of the latter.
