Abstract: Education is the foundation of every society to grow in a healthy manner. Every civilized society has accepted the phenomenon of education, it is the duty of the society itself to nourish it in a positive way. Social change on the other hand is a dynamic process in which education is just an aspect. Education moulds the society by uplifting individuals and thus comes the change, a prosperous change. In India, fromIshwar Chandra Vidyasagar, Ramakrishna Paramhansa, to Dr.SarvepalliRadhakrishnan, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam and all other great Indian educationists have left the legacy of social transformation through quality education. Right to Free and Compulsory Education is a Fundamental Right and the State is obliged to secure it anyway. Besides this, educational cultures play an important role across the globe whether it’s social, economic, political, traditional, cultural, demographical, or religious. Government and Non-Government Organizations also have the social responsibility to provide financial aids to the institutions to ease the access for the financially weak sections of the society. Furthermore, the Judiciary should act as the watchdog to mould education in an exemplary shape and most importantly awareness of the people is needed to acquire proper education. Education, whether it’s formal, informal, legal or of any other kinds, is the only way to transmit knowledge, skills, values, norms, mores or any particular habit from generation to generation in a community or society.
