Abstract: Education, all over the world, has come to be realized as being at the heart of development and the most potent means of self-transformation (personal as well as social). As a human right, education is seen as the crucial factor that links all the items on the development agenda; reducing poverty, promoting health, sharing technology, protecting the environments, extending democracy and improving governance. Education is needed to combat the forces that trap people into poverty. It is needed for survival and life skill, better functioning of the local economy and for acquiring the proficiency needed to participate in the rapidly evolving world economy. Indeed, the need to provide both quality basic education for all and further education in order to link the work force of a country the emerging global economy is becoming ever more pressing
