The school system means a basic institution for schooling. We have been discussing about reforms of it. The necessity of it isn't avoidable due to ever changing circumstances. I think schooling is a part of lifelong education. But the idea of lifelong education has been excluded in a lot of discussions. Under this problematic, this article tried to reinvite the idea of lifelong education and suggested the directions of reform of the school system in terms of this idea.
For realizing the idea of lifelong education, reforms of the school system should be directed as follows.
- diversify chances participating in high quality education- restructure schooling as a process of lifelong education- diversify patterns of schooling- prepare schooling as a kind of continuing education- redesign evaluation system for coincidence between qualifications and competencies and gradual upgrade of them- redesign schooling including e-learning
