Education is a freely accessible, full-text, peer-reviewed, international journal that seeks out clear and significant contributions that further debate on educational issues. Education is interpreted in a wide manner and includes human development, learning, school education, formal and informal education, vocational education, industry training and lifelong learning. Articles are published from teachers, administrators, professors, graduate students, policy-makers, and education specialists.
