Adult Education and Leisure in Flanders.
Rock, P., Ed.; Schevenhels, L., Ed.
This volume on adult education surveys the present situation in the Flemish part of Belgium, reviews historical circumstances that have shaped Flemish adult education, and outlines some possible future developments. The Flemish Movement of the 1800's, university extension (from 1892), the social emancipation movements, Socialism, and endeavors by the public authorities since 1921, are stressed as historical factors. Several chapters deal with available leisure and its use (including mass media, sports, and educational pursuits) in different segments of the population; folk schools, residential adult education, and the work of voluntary associations aimed at special interest groups; characteristics and achievements of cultural centers and boards; the preparation of cultural workers; and inservice training for adult education. Consideration is also given to such aspects as neighborhood centers and community development; further education for out of school youth; publications, surveys, documentation, educational events, and other services of public bodies; and the role of physical education and sports. A bibliography is included, followed by a list of organizations, institutes, and services. (ly)
