Abstract:

Education and culture are two concepts that have always generated wide spread confusion in understanding and usage. This has led some people to ague as to which one is superior to the other, which is unfortunate. This paper therefore seeks to underscore this position and to find out how their proper comprehension can enhance development, in society. Accordingly, the pertinent questions to ask are what is education? And what is culture? And to what extent are they link, and how can they influence development in society. The study qualitatively studied the link between education and culture and its implications for national development. Finally, some important recommendations were proffered, among others was that courses in History and Culture be vigorously pursued in our institutions of learning, because they remind us of what transpired in the past and how to shape constantly for present and future use. Also, courses in history and humanities e.g. sociology, economics, literature should be re-enforced because they promote social interaction and thus enable us to appreciate the worth and. value of each other.
