Education is not just about books but a part of teaching and learning. The earlier educational processes involved sharing knowledge about providing shelter, gathering food, making weapons, and other tools.

Traditional education is also called conventional education. The main motif of traditional education is to pass on ethics, manners skills, and social practice to the future generation which is necessary for their survival.

Moreover, learning language, acquiring the values and behaviour of the people. Before the formulation of reading and writing, people lived in a surrounding in which they sparred to survive against natural forces, animals, and other humans.

In traditional education, the student learns about the customs and traditions of the society in which he or she lives. This type of education is mostly given to the students by means of oral recitation. There is very little written work or practical work. The students merely sit down together and listen to the teacher or other students who recite the lesson. The type of education does not include written tests but some oral tests are taken which are not very formal.

The traditional education system basically included the knowledge about customs, traditions, and religions. That is why it is called traditional education.

The traditional education which was provided in schools was not meant for all the pupils. There was a lot of discrimination between them. It was contemplated that education was meant for only high society people.

The children who belonged to the lower society/ division families were not allowed to enter the schools. The traditional education was not meant for everyone.

Obviously this stereotypical thinking has evolved with time and education has become a fundamental right.
