Indian system of education is one of the oldest systems of the world. Both secular and sacred education was handed over systematically by formalizing the system of education. We found significant growth in the system of education in our country since ancient times. Greeks and Romans have contributed a lot for the growth and development of education system in ancient period in the west.We can draw as many comparisons as possible as far as foundations of educaiotn are concerned in both Indian systems and Greeko-Romans systems of education. The scholar has made an attempt to compare some of the aspects. Unless a prospective teacher knows about the basic philosophical foundations of education laid down he cannot discharge his/her duties as a responsible educator of the country. There is a need for all the prospective teaches, teacher educators to well acquaint with the foundations of education laid down in ancient India and the west. This would enhance the horizon of thinking to all the students of education.
