15 Inspiring WordPress Education Themes

For many of us, education is a pure pursuit of knowledge and it is the means to equip ourselves for a better future.

Traditional forms of education are becoming expensive and out of reach for many common folk. College courses and university degrees can set parents and students back a good deal. With the Internet becoming the place to sell most things, it is no surprise that education has also made it here. Many premier educational institutions have an online presence to attract students from all over the world.

There are a number of WordPress themes designed specifically to support educational institutions like schools, universities, colleges, kindergartens and even private tutors.

Most of these themes are responsive, geared toward a mobile device carrying younger target audience. These themes are designed to be highly functional and compatible with WooCommerce plugin, so paying upfront for a course is easy.
