In this study I discuss how to apply the phenomenological approach to education. Formal learning systems try to create a community in which people have similar feelings, behaviors, and understandings, and so they mostly ignore students' individual differences. Because these differences are necessary for person to become an individual, the differences among students being subjected to formal learning should be supported by using a phenomenological approach.
