    The role and function of education in a society is determined by the aims, objectives, needs and nature of that society. In another way, it can be said that education is the perfect tool to achieve the aim of the society. Development refers to growth or positive change. What comes very crucial to that is acquiring
    knowledge and skills to support development. Thus, education is a significant factor that complements and drives development at every level. Achieving development is also related to governance, which involves the modalities of design, operation, production, regulation, control, and evaluation.
