New Zealand Adult Education.
Hall, David W. O.
This book contains the history of and commentary upon adult education in New Zealand, describing the ways in which social developments and institutions based on foreign models are modified by indigenous traditions and needs. The growth of the national adult education organizations took place under heavy influence from the Workers Education Association in England, and in the period between the world wars New Zealand's W.E.A., in association with the country's universities, became an important factor influencing educational, social, and political development. The work of other voluntary associations concerned with adult education precipitated the establishment by Parliament of the National Council for Adult Education. The Council continues to be an important central organization, though its function has been modified several times by Parliament, particularly in relation to university extension programs. (MF)
