Summary

Asserts that educators who advocate lifelong learning too often support a narrow and arbitrary system of nomenclature, which implies that learning and thus education are terminal concepts. The need for administrative structure and socially recognized reward has plagued educators, and their clients, with learning near-sightedness. The question before the professional facilitator of lifelong learning should be: "What must be done to modify existing systems or implement new infrastructure that can more appropriately respond to lifelong learning needs of all community members?" Before a new structure can be designed, a change in thinking must come about. If we were to concentrate more on the skills desired by a lifelong learner and the relevance of the learning experience, such practices as chronological segmentation, nomenclature, and stages could be dismissed. But in order to be responsive we must consider a different structure--a new model. Community colleges are by their very nature adult educators who are positioned to serve as educational brokers. To reach the status of a true broker of lifelong learning one needs to combine the elements of citizen participation, resource utilization, and organizational partnerships along with the concept of lifelong learning.
