education:

that which is gained as a cultivation of the human mind through schooling, training, or informal learning experiences; that which a learned person is said to have after achieving a cognitive mastery of a certain body of knowledge.

Don Berg of Portland, OR, states that the proper definition of education is the process of becoming an educated person (source of quote). Along with that, he also points out the following: The definition of education in common usage, that education is merely the delivery of knowledge, skills and information from teachers to students, is inadequate to capture what is really important about being and becoming educated.

Locations seeking economic development typically make information about their education resources available to prospects; therefore, education is defined here as an item of location data. The free download Site Selection Data Standards available at the website of the International Economic Development Council is a data set for guiding location data suppliers. The guide has 25 spreadsheets, three of which cover education.
