Education in antiquity (etching, 1818).

Education is the building of understanding and knowledge, both informally through day to day experiences (e.g. at home) and formally (in kindergartens, schools, courses, workshops, etc.).

Individuals receive informal education from a variety of sources. Family members, peers, books and mass media have a strong influence on the informal education of the individual.

Formal education is often in institutions and given by professional teachers.
