It goes on forever without any break or barrier. Thus education becomes an active and dynamic process. It is much more than schooling, memorizing or learning a prescribed syllabus. Therefore, J.S. Makenzie rightly says, "education is a process that goes on thought out life, and is promoted by almost every experience in life.
