The 1973 British Green Paper on Post-School Education.
The 1973 British Green Paper on post-school education is considered with respect to emphasis in higher and further education, the structure of higher and further education, the comprehensive principle, and recurrent education principles. The Green Paper recommended the restructuring of the education of the post-16-year-olds into two sectors based on age alone: (1) 16-18 years, and (2) adults. The Green Paper recommended that greatly increased emphasis should be given to 16-to-18-year-olds, and especially to those who leave formal education as soon as compulsory schooling is completed and do not return for any further courses. It was recommended that increased emphasis should be given to adult education and "nonadvanced education." The implementation of Green Paper recommendations and comments on implementation by study group members are considered. The writing of the Green Paper is also considered. (SW)
