educate (v.)

15世纪中叶, educaten ,"抚养(儿童),训练",来自拉丁文 educatuseducare 的过去分词"抚养,抚养,教育"(也是意大利文 educare ,西班牙文 educar ,法文 éduquer 的来源),这是 educere "带出,引出"的常数,或与 "带出"有关,来自 ex- "出"(见 ex- )+ ducere "引出",来自PIE根 *deuk- "引出"。意为"提供学校教育",最早见于1580年代。相关: Educated ; educating

据《世纪大辞典》记载, educere ,对孩子来说,"通常是指身体上的养育或支持,而 educare 更多的是指心灵",而且,"一般的说法是 education 的主要意义是'引出或展开心灵的力量',这种说法没有权威性"。
