The Mass Media in Adult Education in the Developing Countries: A Literature Review.
Gueulette, David G.
This literature review is in the form of a critique of the typical approaches to education in developing countries and the lack of attention to broad-based ethical issues. It is stated that no one is willing to discuss the real implications of promoting education in any land. Questions of social upheaval or loss of traditional values caused by increased attention to education in developing nations are said to be seldom mentioned. Three issues are called to the attention of writers in this field: (1) the lack of criticism of the UNESCO approach or the traditional export of educational systems and policy; (2) the fact that well-known authors do not seem willing to entertain considerations of so-called "ethical" questions; and (3) that many educators from developing nations are not challenging the theories and machinery of their influential counterparts.
