Education – Part of Sustainable Development
AbstractEducation is an important part of economy, as it has direct results over the social, cultural and economic formation of the individual. Today’s education system is more and more oriented towards training students in an efficient manner. We live in an “information era”, where the main focus is not mainly on knowledge, but rather on the manner in which this knowledge is used in order to obtain performance. However, the problem of this field’s underfinancing in countries such as Romania is a real one. These economic coordinates prove that education means more than the formal education provided in schools. Moreover, those businesses that have an education oriented activity field have known a continuous development. We refer not only to educational institutions, but also to clubs which offer a great variety of courses for children. We will also bring into discussion the different perspectives offered by educational systems such as Montessori or Waldorf.
