Education - original concept:
Education originally was intended as a mentoring system to provide a certain focus to the learning process of individuals and groups of individuals.
The focus was usually defined by the socio-cultural environment of the education system.
A system of social networks (family, schools, universities) and available sources of knowledge (books, media, …) provided the framework of this education. The goal of an education was, to train an individual in all skills necessary for life in her/his socio-cultural and physical environment.
