Education is the fifth pillar I would like to discuss in the Seven Pillars of Society series. Education as a pillar is fairly easy to understand and explain. It is the system of a society that is used to educate the next generation. This education can be as simple as basic language and math skills to teaching the values and culture of the society or to the more complicated systems of philosophy, analytics, and rhetoric. The education pillar relates to the other pillars across the spectrum in varying ways. For example, educations relationship to religion plays at least two roles.
