Adult Education in Australia: Three Organizational Models.
Solomon, Keith J.; Seagren, Alan T.
This paper, which examines adult education in Australia, is divided into three parts. The first part is a background survey of Australian history and Australian educational development, beginning with its colonization by prisoners and including its government forms and its three levels of education: primary, secondary, and tertiary. After this background, the second part of the paper presents three models of adult education; (1) the New South Wales Board of Adult Education, whose system consists of an advisory board to the state minister of education; (2) the Queensland Department of Technical and Further Education, a rationalization model integrating technical and adult education into a single body; and (3) the Council of Adult Education in Victoria, a decentralized "community based" model. The third part of this paper consists of discussions of these three models of adult education and implications for the future of adult education in Australia. A bibliography is included. (KC)
