In a laymans language, education is the process of where we recieve knowledge on how to live life or go through life. If we did not have education in this world would there be any schools, universities or some sort of institutions in this world? i guess not. Education is what has taught many people to be able to do what they are doing now, to be where they are today. The things we enjoy in life, the technology, the beautiful houses that we live in, the good cuisines that we enjoy they are all courtesy of education. This does'nt just apply to the low class but it apply to everyone regardless of wheher you went to university or not. Education is the key to prosperity, success and so on. It teaches us and also corrects us as we go on through life, that is where knowledge to do stuff comes from.
