Correspondence Education for Adults in Sweden.
In dealing with correspondence education for adults in Sweden, this book directs attention to the dependence of correspondence education on the educational welfare state as a whole, development of the educational system, liberal education, labor and vocational training, examinations and certificates, and the new bill on adult education. The new kinds of students include those who for financial or geographical reasons had not had the opportunity of schooling beyond the compulsory 6 or 7 years; some employees in industry or the service trades; school children at the secondary stage (the old lower secondary school gymnasium), and members of study circles associated with voluntary popular education. The postwar years have been characterized by new institutions involved in education and by an increasingly intensive and varied system of cooperation and combination of institutions. (NL)
