A TURNING TO TAKE NEXT, ALTERNATIVE GOALS IN THE EDUCATION OF WOMEN. NOTES AND ESSAYS ON EDUCATION FOR ADULTS, 47.
GOLDMAN, FREDA H.
IN VIEW OF THE FACT THAT MUCH OF THE PARTICIPATION OF WOMEN IN CONTINUING HIGHER EDUCATION RELFECTS ATTEMPTS, OFTEN MADE IN VAIN, AT SELF-FULFILLMENT IN THE SPHERE OF PAID EMPLOYMENT, EDUCATORS OUGHT TO REASSESS THE WHOLE RANGE AND RATIONALE OF CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR WOMEN. ANALYSIS OF THE BASIC ISSUE OF WOMEN AS INDIVIDUALS AND AS MEMBERS OF SOCIETY STRONGLY SUGGESTS THAT EXISTING EDUCATIONAL PROVISIONS ARE INADEQUATE IN BOTH RESPECTS. MOREOVER, MIDDLE CLASS WORKING WOMEN MAY BE THE FIRST LARGE GROUP DISPLACED BY AUTOMATION, AND WITH THEIR ECONOMIC ROLES BEING ELIMINATED AND THEIR FREE TIME INCREASING, WORKING WOMEN ARE NOW BEING CONFRONTED WITH MANY OF THE PROBLEMS FORESEEN FOR THE AUTOMATED SOCIETY OF THE FUTURE. HOWEVER, ALTERNATIVE LIFE STYLES, BASED ON POLITICS, VOLUNTARY SERVICE, LEARNING AND SCHOLARSHIP, AND APPRECIATION AND SUPPORT OF THE ARTS, COULD BE EVOLVED, AND A RADICALLY NEW TYPE OF SCHOOL OR CURRICULUM COULD BE DEVELOPED WITH THE AIM OF PREPARING AND REEDUCATING WOMEN FOR THEIR CHOSEN LEISURE OCCUPATIONS.
