Community Adult Education; Evidence Submitted to the Russell Committee on Adult Education in England and Wales by the Workers' Educational Association (West Lancashire & Cheshire District) and the Liverpool Educational Priority Area Action/Research Project.
Lovett, T. O.
This paper discusses six roles which an adult education agency can fill in an Educational Priority Area and illustrates each one with examples from the Liverpool E.P.A. Project. These roles are: (1) adult education cum community development; (2) adult education as a resource in community development work; (3) adult education as an aid to parents and schools; (4) adult education as a forum for discussing personal, moral, and social problems; (5) adult education as an extension of recreation and entertainment; (6) adult education as a counseling service for individuals and groups. They are discussed in detail in order to emphasize the interrelationship of the various roles and their total contribution to the process of community development in an underprivileged community.
