GAPS BETWEEN INDUSTRIES AND EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS:
Educational Institutions:
Educational institution is a term used to describe institutions dedicated to education. It covers early educational institutions such as kindergarten and elementary school, going all the way to the higher education offered in colleges and universities. A high school is also an educational institution. Educational institutions can be divided into categories based on the age of their students. Early childhood education is us usually intended for kids younger than 7. This includes kindergarten and other forms of preschool institutions. Primary education includes the primary school or elementary school, as well as a middle school or, in some countries, gymnasium. Secondary education includes high school. Higher education includes undergraduate, master and doctoral studies in a university. Another commonly used term is Eligible Educational Institution. According to the IRS “an eligible educational institution is any college, university, vocational school, or other postsecondary educational institution eligible to participate in a student aid program administered by the U.S. Department of Education. It includes virtually all accredited public, nonprofit, and proprietary (privately owned profit-making) postsecondary institutions. The educational institution should be able to tell you if it is an eligible educational institution.” Student aid programs can come in many shapes. For instance an individual that pays a fee or tuition for higher education can apply for a tax deduction. Scholarships are probably the most common form of student aid. Scholarships can come from many sources, including government structures, educational institutions, or private associations.

Industry in the sense of manufacturing became a key sector of production and labor in European and North American countries during the Industrial Revolution, which upset previous mercantile and feudal economies through many successive rapid advances in technology, such as the steel and coal production. It is aided by technological advances, and has continued to develop into new types and sectors to this day. Industrial countries then assumed a capitalist economic policy.
