I believe that the purpose of education is to replace an empty mind with an open mind .The direction in which education starts a child will determine his future life . The whole object of education should be to develop the mind that works and,to free a child’s potential by instilling in him a curiosity to learn ,so that he will continue to learn as long as he lives .
