Education is further divided into primary education, or instruction in the first elements of knowledge, received by children in common or elementary schools or at home; secondary, that received in grammar and high schools or in academies; higher, that received in colleges, universities, and postgraduate study; and special or professional, that which aims to fit one for the particular vocation or profession in which he is to engage.
