We believe education is important across the world. Education equals to schooling in many contexts, especially development cooperation, and EFA prioritized basic education. It is however true that we need to continue learning for new things and changes and present school system can hardly provide wide variety of educational needs no more. If school education produces the labors who match the present system, it makes sense that educated adults feel a disparity between what is required and what is learned. This article does not point out reasons why schooling means education but tries to show a different role of education and learning in various settings for sustainable future. First, it reviews how education is understood in scale of effectiveness. Second, what lies beyond high performance or good results shown by international surveys? Finally, taking Japan as an example, this article shows what direction we could choose for the future in the discussion about the rights to education.
