It is necessary to examine social change in order to understand a society and a social system. Social change ensures that cultural values of a society are transferred to future generations, thereby contributing to existence and maintenance of a tradition of the society. In this era of rapid changes, education is, too, subject to such changes. This is because cultural heritage of a society is transferred to future generation via education. This study outlines the relations between social change and education.
