East Lansing & Pittsburgh: Michigan State University / University of Pittsburgh, 1974. First printing. Paperback. 2 publications, the Grandstaff 11 x 8.5 inches, wraps, good with some wear and tanning, 82 pp., the Paulston and LeRoy paper 33 pp, stapled, good with some yellowing and tanning to borders. Also with two letters from Cole Brembeck, Associate Dean, College of Education at Michigan State, to John Singleton, commenting on Singleton's work on the anthropology of rural schooling and inviting him to explore the anthropology of non-formal education. The push for recognizing the importance and place of non-formal education gathered steam in the early 1970s, likely the impact of a paper challenging the concept of formal learning being the socio-cultural accepted norm for learning authored by Scribner and Cole and published in Science in 1973, wherein they claimed most things in life are better learnt through informal processes, citing language learning as an example. Moreover, anthropologists noted that complex learning still takes place within indigenous communities that had no formal educational institutions. OCLC/Worldcat finds NO copies of the Grandstaff publication in libraries, only the Team Reports issued that same year (480 pp.) at Michigan State. Good. Item #H20954
