Educational Priorities and the W.E.A.; The Case for Reform.
Jackson, Keith; Lovett, Tom
Suggestions are given for involving working class adults in various forms of adult education. The material is derived from practical experience of the Workers' Educational Association (W.E.A.) and the Institute of Extension Studies in Liverpool, where experimental methods were developed for involving the working class communities in central Liverpool in adult education. It is shown that the W.E.A. is uniquely placed to make a major contribution in this field, because of its national organization and its network of tutors and branches, but that it must recognize the need for new flexibility and accessibility and a decision about priorities, as well as cooperation between W.E.A. branches, local education authorities, and universities.
