Abstract

The school is charged with multiple and often-conflicting purposes. These purposes change and diverge through time, between regions and within regions. This discussion considers the various types of contributions made by schools to sustainable society, and how they are shaped by national and international governmental bodies, business interests, popular thought, and parental opinion. We will consider: are schools for academic, physical or moral knowledge? Should schools offer the same education for all students? Which bodies influence schools the most and how? How do global affairs shape the local context, and how can the local context make global change?
