Summary

Education may be looked at in terms of maintenance systems in which children are simply taught what adults know, maintenance and change systems in which provision is made for teaching children what their own parents do not know but which some adults know, and emergent systems in which children have to learn what no adult has ever learned in the same way. Most schools are still providing education consistent with the second system while, because of the new media and technology, emergent systems reflect the unique condition of today's world. We must recognize the inexperience of all adults in the contemporary world and institute new forms of learning together in which adults are educated in ways of identifying and using the world as seen through the eyes of children and teenagers.
