Theory & Discourse
ON EDUCATION AND LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE | Shishir R. Raval
LA 67
While elaborating on the meaning and role of education in a larger environmental and social context, in both formal and informal formats, Shishir R. Raval calls for a holistic approach in “purposes, influences, values, processes, and methods” that adopts the relevant, ever changing and sheds the stagnant and outdated.
Isn’t it so?

Education is everyone’s favorite orphan.

It is out ‘there’. Sporadically it grabs our attention and we itch to change it. After attending to it, like a political election or this special issue, we return ‘here’.

We sacrifice its core nature, purpose, and truthful practice at the altars of the system in place, economic rationality, petty politics, whatever is in vogue, and the whims of the concerned people.

Education’s well-being and adeptness to evolve and adapt depend on the legacy, members, values, rules, vision of its family [institutions], and broader context. We need to recognize and address these deeper traits with a proactive stance, positive attitude, participatory approach, and radical honesty.

What has preceded and what follows is based on years of observation, reading, discussion, writing, and personal experience as an educator and practitioner in Landscape Architecture [LA] and its allied fields. All of this is open for debate and further deliberations.
