Adult Education for Parliamentary Democracy (16th National Seminar, Pondicherry, India, December 26-29, 1968).
Indian Adult Education Association, New Delhi.
Discussing the interrelationship of universal adult suffrage and adult education, this national seminar in India sought to identify the basic values, requirements, and problems of parliamentary democracy, together with consequences of adult suffrage and the potential contribution of adult education to improving the quality of the democratic process. The inaugural address provided a world perspective on, and a philosophical analysis of, problems in education for democratic living. The director's working paper stressed the need for universal adult education, while the President's paper stressed the needs of the age group 15-45. Other papers dealt with the need to develop enlightened public consciousness; discussed the nature of this consciousness; and offered suggestions for a national plan of adult education for parliamentary democracy. Several recommendations on program planning and administrative organization were also presented. (LY)
