The Cultural Context

  • Richard G. Bagnall
Part of the Lifelong Learning Book Series book series (LLLB, volume 1)


My intention in this chapter is to introduce the cultural context that informs and shapes the educational trends with which the subsequent analysis is concerned. I do so by focusing attention firstly on lifelong learning ideology, theory and advocacy, before examining the cultural tendencies which capture and give contemporary expression to that lifelong learning ideology.
