Functions of education towards individual
Functions of education towards society:

the whole personality of the child is developed physically, intellectually, morally, socially, aesthetically and spiritually. S/He is recognized in the society.
Helping for adjustability
Society is never stationary. It is progressive and dynamic. The child exists in society. It is in the social environment where the child’s personality develops. The old traditions, customs are preserved and transmitted with the situations, which are ever changing. We should not think or follow in the blind beliefs, which are hindrances toward our development. Education keeps us abreast with the advancements in science and technology.
Education is a life-long process. Life is education and education is life. Life is full of experiences. One cannot live with his/her past experiences which are unable to adjust in the society. So, education helps the individual to reconstruct the experience and adjust with the environment.
The lack or absence of education among members of the society can lead to narrow-mindedness. Here, they have the tendency to fend for themselves at any cost. In worst cases, people may behave ‘barbarically’ to achieve personal goals. This can be corrected through education. The reason is that it allows moral and social values (e.g. cooperation, tolerance, sympathy, love, respect, and compassion) to be instilled among members of the society.

Refers to the need for personal growth and development throughout one's life. It is the highest level of Maslow's hierarchy of needs.
“What a man can do, he must be”
Maslow listed several characteristics of a self-actualized people.
Self-actualized people tend to view the world with a continual sense of appreciation, wonder, and awe. Even simple experiences continue to be a source of inspiration and pleasure.
Self-actualized people have realistic perceptions of themselves, others, and the world around them.
Self-actualized individuals are concerned with solving problems outside of themselves, including helping others and finding solutions to problems in the external world. These people are often motivated by a sense of personal responsibility and ethics.
Self-actualized people are not spontaneous in their internal thoughts and outward behavior. While they can conform to rules and social expectations, they also tend to be open and unconventional.
Another characteristic of self-actualized people is the need for independence and privacy. While they enjoy the company of others, these individuals need time to focus on developing their own individual potential.
Acceptance and Realism
Autonomy and Solitude
Continued Freshness of Appreciation
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that everyone has the right to education. Education has to be free and compulsory at least in the primary level, whereas higher education should be made available on the basis of merit. Technical and vocational should also be generally available.
Education is a human right since this is one of the few avenues that can allow social mobility for everyone regardless of their background. The UNESCO has also laid down the premise that education is a fundamental human right. In fact, education is an important requisite for the exercise of other human rights. This is because education enables the individual to enjoy freedom, and this is instrumental towards empowerment.
