Education is for becoming wise.

This wisdom shall be provisioned by way of teaching in educational institutions.  An educational institution is a combined expression of all parents and guardians.  Education is an act of imparting wisdom.  Education is incomplete until its recipient becomes wise.  Every educational institution, every parent, every guardian of a child is responsible for imparting wisdom.  Every family is a practice ground of education.  It is no use thinking centralization, privatization or nationalization of education.  We need to directly recognize parents and guardians as educational institution.  That is the design of education when we base it on wisdom.  That alone will benefit humankind.  We need to become capable of delivering justice.  We ourselves need to be real life evidences of delivering justice. We will have wisdom and do justice only when we get these two capabilities.  Today not even chief justices of Supreme Court understand justice, what can be said about others?  Justice is the minimum capability that is needed for humane living.   The evidence of justice is in the form of humane conduct.  Conversely, justice cannot happen if one’s conduct is short of being humane.
