Description/Abstract: More fundamentally, however, looking beyond the school makes evident the need for a basic shift in perspective in studying education, directing attention anew to the learner. When we consider that individuals learn from many significant othersóparents, siblings, grandparents and other kin, peers, and clergy as well as schoolteachersówe are impelled to examine the character of the teaching and learning experience in each of these educative encounters. Once that inquiry has begun, we soon see the need to chart the content and course of the individual's various encounters, and above all to gain understanding of how he engages in, moves through, and combines diverse educative experiences over a lifetime.
