Education is the process of teaching and learning skills and knowledge.

Teaching knowledge or wisdom, helping students to learn, is the job of an educator, that is, an instructor, teacher, or tutor. There are many different kinds of education.

There is formal education, usually in school, where a person may learn basic, academic, or trade skills. Formal education begins in elementary school and continues through secondary school. There is post-secondary education (or higher education, usually at a college or university.)

There is nonformal education, sometimes called adult basic education, adult literacy education or school equivalency preparation. In nonformal education, an adult or out-of-school youth may learn literacy or other basic skills or livelihood skills. Nonformal education takes place in small classes, tutorials or through self-instruction.

There is also informal education, for example, a parent teaching a child how to make a meal. Someone could also get an education informally on one's own, by reading many books from a library.

Education also means helping people to learn how to do things and helping them to learn how to think, make decisions and find the answers to questions.

Through education, the knowledge of a society, country, and of the world is passed on from generation to generation. In democracies, through education, children and adults are supposed to learn how to be active and effective citizens.

In most rich countries, every child has to go to school. In a few cases, children can be "home-schooled" by their parents, but this often must be approved by a school system. Public schools provide a free education through the government. Parents are free to let their children receive a private education, but they must pay for it. In some poorer places, some children cannot go to school, because their families do not have enough money, or because the children have to work.
