How should we define quality education as modern people?
The definition of quality education would reflect a complex system embedded in political, socioeconomic and cultural contexts. The quality education must be open to random transformations and evolutions based on challenges, information and contexts prone to periodic changes. Educational systems that welcome changes through data creation, dissemination, effective usage and self-audits are likely to succeed in allocating quality education to all kinds of learners.
We would define quality education as the education more focused on relentless audits and improvisations on all dimensions. These dimensions include but aren’t restricted to learners, educational environments, quality content, its dissemination, procedures and outcomes. And most learners, communities, educationalists and institutions have realized that things learned in an institute and how the overall process occurs are as important as the access to quality education.
