What is education?
Education is the process of learning from a young age up to adulthood to acquire knowledge and skills. Formal education starts in schools where we are taught subjects like science, geography, life skills, history and maths. After school we can go to tertiary institutions like colleges and universities where we study for a diploma or degree. While we go through life we also learn from experience.
Why do we need education?
'We need education because without education we will not be able to get good jobs. Our country also needs educated people with skills to help grow the economy. In South Africa we have a shortage of skilled people in certain fields like doctors, nurses, engineers and technologists - these are called scarce skills.
What are skills?
People have different talents and skills. Basic skills are things like reading, writing and counting. Specific skills are things like computer skills, building, plumbing, teaching or nursing.
