Schools as Learning Communities: Transforming Education
Continuum International Publishing Group Ltd.
David Bernard Clark
Defining the nature and significance of the learning community for the learning society, this work shows how schools have the potential to become role models for society and its institutions as a whole. David Clark puts forward the idea that a much deeper appreciation of the meaning of potential of the community is needed - profoundly changing what we currently describe as education by communalizing it, as well as developing current understanding of community by bringing education to bear upon it. This text is intended for educational policy makers and advisors, researchers and sociologists, teachers and educational managers.
