Abstract

Education is a basic right for all men and women and a precondition for personal and social progress, but it requires democratic developmental institutions to realise its objectives of personal and social progress. To achieve a high level of sophistication in education, personal and social progress must be linked to social and gender equality. The unequal emphasis on one gender removes the rights of half of an active productive population and this is itself is an obstacle to social development. Education then is part of a chain of human development which reflects the necessary experiences of life–intellectual growth, social development, and transformation of values, political participation and decision-making. This chain of human development thrives against a background of democracy and the promotion of an open liberal education system which encourages creativity and constructive criticism. However it should also be accessible, flexible and empowering to enable the advantaged and disadvantaged sections of the society to benefit from it equally
