Quality or Formality Education?...

     Education tells who you are..does it?..But what education tells us?.. a stable job? success? speaking and writing in languages other than our mother tongue? proficient communication? talking confidently? good stature? having a diploma? good manners? or rather, it's a learning?..unfortunately, that's a fact now..learning comes last followed by good manners when talking about education. But what is education really means? Education in its broadest sense is the means through which the aims and habits of a group of people lives on from one generation to the next. It occurs through any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts. Education in its narrow, technical sense, is the formal process by which society deliberately transmits its accumulated knowledge, skills, customs and values from one generation to another, such as instruction in schools. In the latter sense, this is where the question of quality and formality emerges.
     Quality education leads and plays a major role to an excellent student education. An excellent education can be done through teaching methods and curriculum that works for the students as well as the country's present situation. In having  quality education, institution sets standards of achievement. Achievement test is being implemented in different level, from division to regional to national achievement test. Students undergone these tests to determine if they have attained the standards set for achievement, and these tests also acknowledge the kind of  educational system  where the students are enrolled in. In this manner, comes the question of formality education.
     Formality education or rather formality of education refers to the structure and system or process being implemented for the attainment of learning. The question lies on the attainment of learning and the process, being the process as a means and learning as an end. Due to the structure of certain schools and the government agency responsible for education, the means becomes an end. In order to follow the standards set for achievement and the system and the  process, the real goal was set aside in which we don't know  exactly who would benefit from it since learning of students as a goal was not really achieved. Teachers, Principals, Division Heads, Supervisors, etc, are busy implementing school rules and educational systems, and occupied with submission of different paper requirements and documents as well as beautifying the school's image. Every year, you can ask students if they have learned the required curriculum that they had just passed, I doubt if they have. 
     Quality or formality? the end or the means? it and know the difference, know it deeper and think how it is..look down and read...
     Though it seems right..let's take the job as a task. Learning is for a future task..Results are obtained when the former students start their new tasks...
