Education, to Gandhiji, was a means to achieve perfection of individuality on the one hand and an instrument of service to the nation on the other. Thus, individual and social both the aims of education were considered by him equally important. “By education mean an all-round drawing out of the best in child and man-body, and spirit”, he said.This in other words meant development of whole child, the whole personality of the child. Harmonious development of all the aspects of human personality such as physical, intellectual and spiritual was emphasized by him as an individual aim of education.Emphasizing the social aim of education he said that the individual has a responsibility to work for the welfare of the whole society. “Willing submission to social control and restrain for the sake of the well-being of the whole society” were considered by him important attitudes to be developed in the people through education.Good of the individual and good of the society were interdependent. So education should be both for the child as well as for the state.
