- Philosophy of education is concerned with the theory and practice of education. Consequently, philosophy of education can be serviced to the educational theories as well as learners and students of education. The main concern of philosophy of education is to formulate the purpose of education, the method of teaching, what should be taught and how it should be taught and how we should make for the progress of society and state. These ideas are found in some Western educational theories. Some thinkers said that education is a state matter and the maintenance of a good society. This paper tries to present that the contributions of some Western educational theories are still useful and applicable for powerful society and the state.
