What is the difference between literacy & education?

While an educated person can be a literate, every literate person cannot be called educated. Education is a broader concept which takes into consideration the all round development of a human personality. Whereas literacy is a narrower concept that tends to maintain the status quo. Education aims to make a person rational i.e. to think comprehensively and reason scientifically. It includes developing skills and learning to maneuver them in the right direction.
