Education is learning of knowledge. World statistics shows that untill 1900 human knowledge doubled approximately every century. By 1945 knowledge was doubling in 25 years. Today, different knowledge have different rates of growth. For example, nanotechnology double in two years, clinical knowledge in 18 months but on the average human knowledge is doubling every 13 months. This fast rate of growth in knowledge prompts to think that even the educated cannot know it all. Thus, Will Durant's quote: "Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance"
