INTERNATIONAL AND INTER-RACIAL UNDERSTANDING, THE CONTRIBUTION OF ADULT EDUCATION.
COLES, E.K. TOWNSEND; JESSUP, F.W.
THE REQUISITE LEVEL OF INTERNATIONAL AND INTERRACIAL UNDERSTANDING WILL NOT BE ACHIEVED WITHOUT A GREAT EXPANSION OF ADULT EDUCATION. EDUCATION FOR INTERNATIONAL AND RACIAL UNDERSTANDING MAY SEEK TO COMMUNICATE RELEVANT KNOWLEDGE, TO INCULCATE WHOLESOME ATTITUDES, AND TO PROVIDE PERTINENT EXPERIENCE. INTERNATIONAL UNDERSTANDING MAY BE PROMOTED BY (1) DIRECT TEACHING OF SUCH SUBJECTS AS FOREIGN LANGUAGES, ANTHROPOLOGY, GEOGRAPHY, AND INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS, (2) GROUP AND SOCIAL ACTIVITIES, SUCH AS STUDY TOURS, RESIDENTIAL COURSES, AND EXCHANGE PROGRAMS, (3) SUCH INFORMATIONAL SOURCES AS LIBRARIES, NEWSPAPERS, MUSEUMS, AND RADIO AND TELEVISION, AND (4) ACTIVITIES OF INSTITUTIONS AND ORGANIZATIONS WHICH SEEK TO INFLUENCE ATTITUDES AND BEHAVIOR, SUCH AS THE UNITED NATIONS ASSOCIATION, THE ENGLISH-SPEAKING UNION, AND CHRISTIAN CHURCHES. RACE RELATIONS, AS A FIELD OF STUDY, SHOULD RECEIVE MORE SPECIALIST CONSIDERATION AND SHOULD BE MORE WIDELY INTRODUCED INTO ADULT CLASSES. THE ADULT EDUCATOR MAY PROVIDE ACADEMIC STUDY OF THE SUBJECT, OR EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES WHICH HELP INDIVIDUALS TO LIVE IN HARMONY IN A "RACIALLY" MIXED SOCIETY. (APPENDIXES INCLUDE EXAMPLES OF SIX COURSES AND COMMUNITY ACTION PROGRAMS.) THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF ADULT EDUCATION, 35 QUEEN ANNE STREET, LONDON W.1, ENGLAND. (EB)
