Stages of Linking School and Nonschool Learning Environments

by Mario D. Fantini - 1985

This chapter provides a historical overview of four stages in the evolution of school and nonschool settings. Each major socioeconomic period provided the context that determined an appropriate model of interaction between school and nonschool environments. However, when we review the evolution of different educational stages, we need to acknowledge that they represent merely summations of tendencies toward varying emphases within locally controlled systems of education. These stages are also overlapping, with the roots of one firmly resting in the previous one and extending into the next, although each became dominant at a particular stage in our socioeconomic history. Of particular interest is the emerging model for the twenty-first century, for it represents the one that most citizens, professionals, and policymakers will be shaping in the years ahead.
