Education is a continuous process. Ideal Education is therefore a dynamic vision.From the days Alfred Binet the father of Intelligence in 1900s, Intelligence is playing a keyrole in education and beyond. IQ tests are being extensively used as indicative measuresof effective education.This paper will focus on the Education as a process for evolving human culture and howintegrated intelligence can help to sharpen this focus for an enriched fulfillment of life.Present system of education is primarily focused on three aspects namely – Literacy toread & write, Sciences of knowledge, and Professional education for livelihood. While allthis build a good knowledge base and a career in life but it misses out the importantaspect. The important aspect is the Conduct / Character building, human / social valuesbuilding and essentially how to lead a life in the midst of adversities yet achieving thebest in life. The management of living is missing.
