Summary "This book provides the first comprehensive picture of lifelong learning and the radical changes needed if it is to become the cultural norm. Clearly written and readily accessible, the book identifies the shifts in attitude and behaviour which are needed to establish a lifelong learning culture. Looking ahead over the next quarter of a century, Jim Smith and Andrea Spurling show how government and learning providers must fundamentally reassess their use of time, space and finance." "But, more than that, they also offer a practical, comprehensive and robust strategy for lifelong learning. Through trenchant analysis based on research commissioned by The Lifelong Learning Foundation, this book shows ways of confronting difficult choices and realizing the aim of comprehensive lifelong learning."--BOOK JACKET
