I think education is a process because people learn from all things, with bad and good things. You can learn about an experience in the street, by reading a book or watching a film, ... That is to say, people, specially children, don’t only learn at school, with formal education.
And it is for this reason that the role of adults, who are the guides of the development process of children, is so important. Because their work is to show children the tools to be a critical person, to have arguments to choose the most useful things, in their context, for their progress. Or isn’t it the goal of education?
