Society uses education to send accumulated knowledge, skills and values from one generation to the next. Education is the means for the process of socialization. The learning process and educational achievement are measured through different educational structures and forms. Every individual in western society accumulates knowledge demonstrated through assessments of the acquired knowledge. Western educators use hierarchical structures such as schools and universities. Other forms of education rely upon cooperation, community and inclusion in the form of informal networks, popular education or homeschooling programs. Traditional mainstream education is more of a meritocratic and individualized experience.
