Beyond Schooling: Education in a Broader Context. Fastback 177.
Kelly, Eugene W., Jr.
Education occurs in many diverse settings, but the achievement of individual, societal, professional and vocational, corporate, and cultural and leisure goals is hindered by lack of interrelatedness among educating units. Duplication of educational efforts wastes resources; discontinuity of educational experiences impedes learning; and fragmentation of educating units results in unmet educational needs. The broad concept of education should be turned into a practical reality. In this reality, educating units from all sectors would be productively connected in a broad and comprehensive system of education. In such a system, individual educating units would continue to pursue their special goals but would also relate to and collaborate with other units in achieving all educational goals. Coordinated efforts would result in direct support and collaboration among diverse educating units. The system would not be a hierarchy, bureaucracy, government, or private institution, but would have sufficient structure to afford continuity in communication, collaboration, coordination, and problem solving.
