Definition of Education

From the 1828 Noah Webster Dictionary we get the following clear definition of Education: 
"EDUCA'TION, noun [Latin educatio.] The bringing up, as of a child; instruction; formation of manners. Education comprehends all that series of instruction and discipline which is intended to enlighten the understanding, correct the temper, and form the manners and habits of youth, and fit them for usefulness in their future stations. To give children a good education in manners, arts and science, is important; to give them a religious education is indispensable; and an immense responsibility rests on parents and guardians who neglect these duties.” (Noah Webster, Webster's 1828 Dictionary, 1828.)   See also some FAVORITE QUOTES on Education.
