Noah Webster 1828

How we define words is so important.
Education (Oxford Dictionaries):
The process of receiving or giving systematic instruction, especially at a school or university:
a new system of public education
The theory and practice of teaching:
colleges of education
A body of knowledge acquired while being educated:
his education is encyclopedic and eclectic
Information about or training in a particular field or subject...
Education (Noah Webster 1828):
The bringing up, as of a child; to instruction; formation of manners. Education comprehends all that series of instruction and discipline which is intended to enlighten the understanding, correct the temper, and form the manners and habits of youth, and fit them for usefulness in their future stations. To give children a good education in manners, arts and science, is important; to give them a religious education is indispensable; and an immense responsibility rests on parents and guardians who neglect these duties.
