Academic aims of education are concerned with those information and discoveries which change human understanding about society and universe. For instance, this is an academic aim of education to produce scientific approach in an individual. For the acquisition of this academic aim of education, it is necessary to make an individual acquainted with the scientific discoveries and principles discovered. To me, following are the significant academic aims of education :-
Expansion in academic excellencies :Education gives rise to sciences, skills and discoveries. The subject-matter of natural and social sciences has much increased because of education. The content and subject-matter of various sciences are, in fact, academic excellencies which are being increased with the passage of time. If the educative process suspends, the evolution and development of various sciences would come to an end and the world would go back to the Stone Age again.
Preservation of knowledge :The facts, truths and findings collected from various fields cannot be preserved and safeguarded without the process of education. Education is the only key to preservation of knowledge acquired through different
means. If education did not exist, there would be no academic capital in the hands of mankind. Discovered truths and other academic excellencies are preserved in terms of curriculum. Then this curriculum is transmitted to the next generations through the instructional process.
