Before we discuss the relation of education and freedom and to understand how education empowers the enthusiasm of freedom in masses, it is important to know what freedom is.

A wide spread definition of freedom is that ‘‘it is the power that a person possess to think, speak and act freely without any fear of oppression from anybody, either.
