What is your definition of good education?

Being a teacher at middle school for twenty-year.The question:What is the so called good education? It keeps haunting in my mind.I feel good to keep asking me the question.Because I really hope what my teaching can help young people to understand their lives better.As well as I know it is not a solo aspect to definite good education.But I would like you come to share your understanding of good education.Because I think it is never be enough to keep talking about education.As much as we can come together to communicate it.We need everyone join in talking education,we will see better education around us.Thanks.

In Chian, we have to recieve the force-feed education and we desire acquire the good education that means we don't like to study with indiscriminately.We should ,to large extent,have our rights to choose the coures which we really like it,especially in high school.
