A STUDY OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LIFELONG LEARNING AND ADJUSTMENT OF OLDER PEOPLE.
WOLFE, LLOYD M.
AN INVESTIGATION WAS MADE OF A POSSIBLE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN GOOD ADJUSTMENT IN LATER YEARS AND LEARNING DURING ADULTHOOD. AN ATTITUDE SCALE WAS ADMINISTERED TO 251 MEN AND WOMEN OVER 65, FROM WHICH THE HIGHEST AND LOWEST 50 SCORES WERE SELECTED. THE 100 PARTICIPANTS WERE INTERVIEWED AS TO THEIR EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES--READING, ADULT EDUCATION CLASSES, OR CLUBS WITH SOME EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM. GOOD ADJUSTMENT WAS SIGNIFICANTLY RELATED TO EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES AND TO PRESENT SOURCES OF INCOME AND GRADE COMPLETED. WELL ADJUSTED PERSONS HAD INCOME FROM PRIVATE SOURCES AND HAD HIGHER LEVELS OF FORMAL EDUCATION. CONTINUED LEARNING WAS NOT RELATED TO SOURCE OF INCOME, OR SCHOOL GRADE COMPLETED AMONG THOSE WHO HAD EIGHT GRADES OR LESS COMPLETED. FOR THOSE COMPLETING NINE YEARS OR MORE OF SCHOOL, THERE WAS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ADJUSTMENT AND LEARNING.
