The Concept of Educative Style

by Hope Jensen Leichter - 1973

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.

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.
