Education: system of continuation, development and enrichment of culture
Article 1. Education is the gradual process
Education is the gradual process by which the human mind is formed and developed, as an individual or as a member of the community. Its objective is to educate man, to teach him a number of key concepts of common life, to teach the necessary principles for its control, in order to enable him to respond to individual and social existence with a fully developed personality.
Article 2. It is made possible
It is made possible through teaching, training, education, knowledge and the practice of the evolving usage of society, with politeness and a knowledge of how to live.
Article 3. The formation of a human being
The formation of a human being is the result of the acquisition of a set of theoretical and practical knowledge. It begins in early childhood. It is first provided by the family and then the school. The school is the institution (public or private) within which general teaching is given. It provides the teaching or training that the family is not able to instill in its children.
Article 4. Education is the
Education is the science of parenting and the specific method of teaching. Education is the means to educate by the transmission of knowledge, using specific signs in spoken and written languages. The act of teaching is the activity that seeks to transmit to future generations the corpus of theoretical and practical knowledge, that is, the values considered part of the common culture. The transmission of knowlegdge and know-how is carried out by books and all other supports of communication (newspapers, journals, magazines, and audiovisual, broadcasting and cinematic methods).
Article 5. School provides the student
Universal schooling provides the student with knowledge and skills so that he understands and assimilates and integrates in his intellectual memory the acquired elements, accumulating what will constitute a culture that is common to all members of his group. We call technical all practices used to produce a specific work, or performed to obtain a particular goal, desired or desirable. Formal education includes in its intrinsic system a set of rules of conduct to determine the civic behavior of the future adult, his way of acting in society or in private, and a way to behave and observe some discipline.
Article 6. Of course, human beings
Of course, human beings can learn and master the techniques outside of the school framework, and by himself, by his reading, satisfy his curiosity and quench his personal thirst for knowledge. Learning comprises the will and desires to continue one’s own work to enrich and train one’s own intellect. Learning contains a more general principle than pedagogy. As for education, this word is used in a broader sense to refer to the training of individuals of any age or a collectivity (the education of the people and not their indoctrination).
Article 7. The purpose of education is not
The purpose of education is not only to “create geniuses” but to make “well educated people”; furthermore, education teaches human beings how to behave, in order to be consistent with all practices socially recognised as being the best behaviors and manners. Education means ‘learning to learn’ or to think for yourself so as to make free individuals within independent societies.
Article 8. A way of being or acting
A way of being or acting is a behavior which has an impact on others, which is to say on other people. This is the case for politeness or the civic sense that can be defined as the set of basic rules for living together, in society, determined by a specific behavior and language.
Article 9. We remember that education
We remember that education of an individual depends a lot on his family and social environment. Education promotes the transmission of cultural heritage.
