There is a misconception that one has to be a teacher if one pursues Education. But it is not true. A student of Education can be a good leader or guide in any sort of organizations. As he possesses the knowledge about the overall national educational status he can work at a policy level in national level organizations. He can work as a senior advisor in various national projects and can make plans and policies of overall national educational system. He can manage the education system from eastern part of the nation to the far-west. Likewise, he can also work in various NGOS and INGOS related to education. Education is a very broad and global phenomenon and limiting education stream to a single profession is a misunderstanding that needs to be elucidated.
