A Prospective View of Permanent Education. Report I.
In looking forward to a system of permanent education, there is a need for a definition of objectives which would determine the structures, content, and methods of education. The formal educational system would have four functions: occupational training; providing basic education; teaching how to take advantage of out-of-school possibilities; and motivating the future adult to continue to educate himself. Reforms would be required: time must be allowed for experience to be extended through visits or work; choice of subjects will have to be diversified; and teaching must be linked to the learner's experiences. Information and guidance will have a capital role to play. This educational transformation would require a year of study, several years of experimentation, and a stage of systematization which will allow for constant critical appraisal. (NL)
