Education and social change
Education is a medium for social change and development which constitutes an essential input into the development process itself, which is widely accepted in modern society. Any society can bring about the desired changes and cope with the rapid development of technology only through education. It has played an important role in securing socio-economic progress, improving income distribution, eradicating poverty by generating new employment opportunities; it also removes class discrimination, gender bias and promotes equality and justice. Undoubtedly education can be a very important collateral factor in the process of social change. It can help to accelerate and work out that process by disseminating knowledge, awareness, information, skills and values to the changing socio-economic issues of the planet. Thus education is the fundamental method of social development and reform, which enriches an individual's understanding of themselves and the world. Every aspect of a man's life has witnessed a phenomenal change through education. Education has acted as an agent of socialization of the younger generation to meet society's expectations. It also guides the child towards new values and assists the development of intelligence and increases society's potential for its own transformation.
