Education

The importance of education as a means of social control is being increasingly realized. Edu-cation is a process of socialization. It prepares the child for social living. It reforms the atti-tudes wrongly formed by the children. Thus a family may make the child superstitious; edu-cation will correct his beliefs and remove his prejudices. It teaches him value of discipline, social cooperation, tolerance and sacrifice. It instills in him the qualities of honesty, air play and a sense of right and wrong. The importance of education for creating right social atti-tudes among youth cannot be overlooked.
