Community / Society – An Active Informal Agency of Education


The word community has been defined differently by different people. Community is a mini form of society. It is an integral part of society. Both community and society may be taken as synonymous. The only different between the two is that community is a smaller group of people whereas society is a much wider group of people. Many communities put together form a society.

Some of the definitions of society are as under:

MacIver & Page: “Society is the web of social relationships and it is always changing.”
Lapiere: “The term society refers not to a group of people but to the complex pattern of the forms of inner-actions that rise among and between them.”

Talcott Parsons: “Society may be defined as total complex of human relationships is so far as they grow out of action in terms of means and relationships, intrinsic or symbolic.”

In the light of above definitions, we can state that a specific society implies a group of human beings living within the limits of a definite country and which is characterized by a definite culture. The school is related to this specific society. .
