An Experiment in Adult Education in the EPA.
This report deals with the philosophy behind the Liverpool Educational Priority Area Project, a program of adult education for working class persons, and describes two of the programs in detail. Education in an EPA needs to be relevant, grounded in real problems and situations, and the emphasis should be on involvement and discovery. The first experiment in community involvement described succeeded because of the initiative of the local people using their skills and experiences to set up their own community center. The other program went a step further in that as the residents became more involved, they reached the point where they felt they needed something of a more formal educational nature. The challenge that these innovative types of adult education present to the Workers' Educational Association is described. (CL)
