Training of Adult Educators in East Europe. Monographs on Comparative and Area Studies in Adult Education.
Kulich, Jindra, Ed.
The purpose of this volume is to present information on the training of adult educators in East European countries. All but two of these countries, Albania and Bulgaria, are described. The first of nine articles provides an overview of the research and preparation of adult education staff in some East European countries. Factors cited as influencing the system development in these countries are tradition, social situation, growth and application of science, acceptance of the continuous education idea, and the development of theory and greater professionalism in the adult education field. Following the initial report, there are articles dealing with Czechoslovakia, the German Democratic Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, and Yugoslavia. The article on the Soviet Union deals only with the political education aspects. All contributions were originally published elsewhere. (CSS)
