Aims and Objectives of Education

Many well-known scientists, philosophers, professionals, and many more have mentioned the importance of the aims and objectives of education through their letters, brochures, and official documents. These aims and objectives are very similar words, but from the educational point of view, they both have varied meanings. Education without a clear-cut aim is like a rudderless ship shipping in the sea. So, the knowledge of both terms from an educational perspective is very much required.

Educational Aims

It serves the purpose of education, or we can say that it is the backbone of the education system. Aims generally set goals for teachers to attain. There are some scenarios where they set for both students and teachers to achieve together. The whole process of education can’t be achieved without an aim.

Educational Objectives

Educational objectives are more specific than educational aims. The objective of a particular course is considered a short-term goal achieved by the students successfully during the course period. Teachers take various tests to examine whether a student has attained the desired objective or not that is set by them.
