Education is the process by which someone is made ​​to the standards of his caregiver (s) and thus usually the society in which he lives.

This term is often used for children , who are in their youth were the habits, norms and values ​​of their surroundings have instilled. When an adult does not comply with generally accepted love interaction with others, and for that reason gets new education, there is generally spoken of re-education.

In a broader sense education is also learning to live as humans in this society. More specifically, the adult who educates a child and teaches this empowerment, skilled independent and self to live his life.

The science which is engaged with education called pedagogy .


Pedagogy is the holistic science of education. It may be implemented in practice as a personal, and holistic approach of socialising and upbringing children and young people. The term is not to be confused with social pedagogy, where society (represented by social pedagogues) holds a bigger part of the responsibility of the citizen's (often with mental or physical disabilities) well-being.

Pedagogy is also occasionally referred to as the correct use of instructive strategies (see instructional theory). For example, Paulo Freire referred to his method of teaching adult humans as "critical pedagogy". In correlation with those instructive strategies the instructor's own philosophical beliefs of instruction are harbored and governed by the pupil's background knowledge and experience, situation, and environment, as well as learning goals set by the student and teacher. One example would be the Socratic schools of thought.

Etymology and generalizations

The word comes from the Greek παιδαγωγέω (paidagōgeō); in which παῖς (país, genitive παιδός, paidos) means "child" and άγω (ágō) means "lead"; so it literally means "to lead the child". The Greek παιδαγωγός (pedagogue); in which παιδί (ped) means "child” and άγω (ago) means "lead"; would also mean "to lead the child." Other relevant roots from Greek include μικρό παιδί [8] or toddler; αγόρι [8] or boy child; κοριτσιών[8] or girl child; μικρό παιδί or young child, indicating that παιδί is used with very young children of both sexes.

An instructor develops conceptual knowledge and manages the content of learning activities in pedagogical settings. This is consistent with the Cognitivism of Piaget, 1926, 1936/1975; Bruner, 1960, 1966, 1971, 1986; and Vygotsky, 1962 where sequential development of individual mental processes such as recognize, recall, analyze, reflect, apply, create, understand, and evaluate are scaffolded. The learning technique is adoptive learning of procedures, organization, and structure to develop an internal cognitive structure that strengthens synapses in the brain. The learner requires assistance to develop prior knowledge and integrate new knowledge using Verbal/Linguistic and Logical/Mathematical intelligences. The learner must learn how to learn while developing existing schema and adopting knowledge from both people and the environment. This is low order learning of conceptual knowledge, techniques, procedures, and algorithmic problem solving.[9]

But what does the Bible say about education ranking

Education in the Bible

The Bible says that we must educate our children in truth. What is that? There are four main aspects, which always come back when the Bible talks about children and parenting. Teach them the way they should go
First, the Bible says that parents should teach their children the way they should go. In other words, parents should raise their children to adulthood and how they should act as adults. The aim of education should not only the here and now, but parents have to work on, how will our children be  a grown man or woman? This means that the children among whom will grow up with values ​​and norms, which are important as they mature. Throughout the Bible we can learn what God considers important: integrity, honesty, righteousness, do what you promised, care of orphans and widows, hard work with plenty of rest.
If you want your children to become  adults who care for the poor and the less fortunated, championing disenfranchised, share their money and hold good relationships, then you'll have to teach your children from childhood to parenting values.
Tell your children about God
The Bible also makes it clear that your children should be tought a lot about God. Many well-meaning parents think that it is the same as bringing children to church, to Sunday school or buying Christian books. All these are all important things, but the Bible talks about parents who want to tell their children about Him. Not the pastors or Sunday school teacher. This is exactly what parents mostly always overlook. Parents have the unique opportunity to teach their children daily about God and put their faith in him. They can show their children what God means in their lifes and how God deals with them. Sadly, few parents make some effort to tell their children about their faith and God's guidance in their lives. Yet it is important to talk about such important matters.
In many places of the Bible there is spoken about discipline to teach children. This means that good behavior must be learned and bad behavior must be punished. Punishment in the Bible is never retaliate or take your own bad temper on your children. But a child learns what is good and what things really are not (anymore). One of the things that is important is that you as father not discourage your child. So do not belittle or harass. If you have a clear goal with the education of your child, you also encourage good behavior and you are happy with the child as it is. Although the rules should be clear and they can expect punishment for violations within the prescribed limits, they will be able to live and develop with great pleasure.
According to the Bible, parents should be reliable. This also means that they are consistent. If one day something canbe penalized and the next day it should not be penalized, you as parents are not reliable. Even if you have promised something you must promise. In Bible status: Let your yes be yes and your no no. That means: do what you say.
Parents have the leadership
Parents have a say and define the rules that should be clear. If the rules and arrangemenst are just not clearly that may bring unrest. Also, your child knows that parents will always react the same way, especially if he limits to test it out or not to listen. These are the main aspects of parenting as the Bible writes about.
