The word "Education" has been derived from the Latin words Educare, Educatum or Educere. "Education and Educare" mean "to train, to bring up and to nourish", while 'educare' means "to lead out" the former implies that education is something external, to be imposed or put in from outside. The latter indicates growth from within. Aristotle defined education as "a process necessary for the creation of a sound mind in a sound body". Dewey, in twentieth century, defines education in these words: "Education is process of living through a continuous reconstruction of experiences. It is the development of all those capacities in the individual which will enable him to control his environment and fulfill his possibilities".
