Few nations have implemented a lifelong learning policy framework in the comprehensive form expressed by the OECD in 1996, though many OECD member countries have pursued education and training reforms, at times driven by agendas quite at odds with its policy values. Nevertheless, the lifelong learning ideal retains significant symbolic power, even when it is subject to the policy realities played out in contemporary education and training.
