Education is an essential component of community wellbeing, enabling humans to develop their intellectual potential and maximising their capacity to deal with all aspects of life. The education and skills base of community members can influence their capacity to gain employment and participate in their community. A more educated community also has greater capacity to engage in the emerging knowledge economy (CIV, 2006).
