Society is beginning to recognize that the need for education extends beyond the range established for formal schooling. Education is a process that begins at birth and never ends, and is always a matter of individual capacities, interests, and needs. The schoolhouse concept, which limits education to that which can take place in a traditional space, is anachronistic in an age of telecommunications and computers. This outdated concept must be discarded in favor of a system that provides ready access to education to every citizen, regardless of age. A likely alternative involves a central Service Tender providing educational materials to widely disseminated Learning Stations. These stations, designed to serve numbers of students appropriate to the educational discipline and level using them, from one to hundreds, could be found in isolation or in clusters throughout the community, in government buildings, shopping centers, industrial parks, and so on. The most important requirements of any redesign of education and facilities are to foster the student, provide the student with an excellent teacher, provide the teacher with a good program, and, finally, design the space around the needs of the other three.
