The Concept of Permanent Education and Its Application in Denmark. Studies on Permanent Education, No. 2.
A report is made to the Secretariat of the Council of Europe of a case study on the introduction of the concept of permanent education in Denmark. The supplies of education, which have been limited to clients in childhhod, adolescence, and yound adulthood, should now be distributed over a lifetime. Economic growth was formerly explained by input of land, labor, and capital; now it is accepted that research and education also are input factors. Political integration in Western Europe will lead to economic growth but may also cause disruption and unemployment in certain industries. Dependent on foreign trade, Denmark is particularly vulnerable; the best basis for industrial development will be a stronger educational system combined with research. A plan for the introduction of permanent education might comprise: provision of educational supplies to all major professions and occupations; reorganization of the existing system; research, development, and control functions; and reorganization of educational administration through legislative amdendments.
