  Education - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the West, the origins of education are associated with organized religion: priests and monks realised the importance of promoting positive virtues in the young and founded, maintained, and staffed school systems.
Out of such systems the general and vocational education paths of the 20th century emerged, with increasing economic specialisation demanding increasingly specialised skills from a population which spent correspondingly longer periods in formal education before entering or while engaged in the workforce.
British records show that education was widespread in the 18th century, with a school for every temple, mosque or village in most regions of the country.
