Adult Education in Western Germany.
Knoll, Joachim H.; And Others
Here are abstracts of three books on adult education in Western Germany, where the institutions and methods of continuing education have been nearly unknown. The first, ERWACHSENENBILDUNG IN DER BUNDESREPUBLIK (ADULT EDUCATION IN THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC), 167 pages, justifies regarding adult education today as a complete changeover from its forms in the Weimar Republic when adult education was independent of vocational training. The second document, ERWACHSENENBILDUNG AM WENDEPUNKT (ADULT EDUCATION IN CRISIS), 150 pages, is about the Bochum Model, an unorthodox plan for future post-secondary education in Germany combining correspondence and television courses with participation in small groups. The third document, ERWACHSENENBILDUNG-ERWACHSENENQUALIFIZIERUNG (ADULT EDUCATION--ADULT QUALIFICATION), 200 pages, is a compilation of statutes, speeches by politicians, and theoretical materials on adult education in West Germany. A detailed introduction describes the history there since 1945. (rt)
