"...education doesn't go on in ... rooms of our legislative buildings. It happens in classrooms..." Is classroom the only place?

It seems that our creativity as a society would have to also evolve beyond the context in which we see education. The possibilities of what education is or could be, I believe is more than just a classroom. Education associated with a one physical location, as a school, would continue to fall under conformity and standardization. Let's see education as it is, that is, Education Happens in Society - home, media, role models, communities, offices, social gatherings, war and so on. Our world is education as seen by each unique being. Classroom is just a piece of it.
