The word 'school' has its origin in ancient Greece where it meant, among other things, a discourse between teacher and student, elder/younger, tradesman/apprentice etc. By the bronze age, 3000 BC, there were schools in Egypt and west Asia. In China probably earlier.

Schooling goes back past 5,000 B.C. No one knows the exact name of the person but whoever he was he was Sumerian. The Sumerians were the first civilization. Then Babylonians, Medes, Chadleans, Assyrians, New Babylonians, Persians, Egyptians.
