    How should I understand "intergenerational legacy of school and of being schooled"

    How should I understand the following words underlined? Thanks!

    Understanding and leading learning, in its most profound sense, requires a return to first principles, or axioms, as to the nature, purposes, rhythms and contexts of learning, prompting the question: to what extent can such commitments be accommodated within the constraining inf luences of the institutions we call schools? It implies an ability to see the unseen, to question the unquestioned and to address the intergenerational legacy of school and of being schooled. Leadership implies not only profound personal insight, but an ability to help others share those insights and to be alive to insights which others bring.

    Legacy means legal inheritance; here it just means continuity of knowledge and habits. So, the phrase means "the passing of educational values from one generation to the next."

    Thanks for reminding. The author is John MacBeath, a professor emeritus from Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge. I cited the quotation from Chapter 3 "Leading learning in a world of change" of a report titled "Leadership for 21st century learning" published by OECD.
