School is a particular socio-cultural milieu in which meaningful learnings can be developed, supported by forms of socialization, both between peers and between adults and children; with reference to meaningful learnings, related to historic-cultural contents and to consequent methodologies, the models that can be found in the first chapters of any Psychology handbook are not adequate, as if there was a unique concept of learning. School is rather a social context in which, gradually, children and kids grow up and learn together through experiences and proposals that may come from different activities, and in which the social and verbal dimension is not an added event but fundamental. At school young people learn to stay with others, to cooperate, to face each other, to "argue without beating each other", trying to define what words are used for. Psychology is currently ineffective to solve learning problems because it is not largely able to arrange tools and methodologies which are suitable to offer a meaningful contribution that may guide observation and educational action.
