Above all, anthropologists concerned with education must continually address audiences from the scholarly disciplines, from expert practitioners, and from the public at large through the media and politics. In these interactions anthropologists must continually refine what they say to justify their contricutions against that of the other disciplines (particularly psychology), the common sense of practitioners seeking immedicate answers, and above all the commons sense of parents and other political actors. Standing in front of all these, anthropologists have affirmed "culture!" But this is not enough any more. As the word "culture" has gained currency in psychology, educational practice, and political common sense, anthropologists must reconstitute the argumentation that did bring culture into the common sense. I intend this presentation to represent what anthropology can continue to contribute to our understanding of education and culture. I do this partly through an extensive review of the anthropological literature on education. I do this mostly by following a series of threads that we must continue to work at bringing together.
