National Inst. for Educational Research, Tokyo (Japan).
This paper summarizes a report focusing on the concepts of lifelong education and the learning society as guidelines for education in the future in Japan. Chapters 1 and 2 give a general outline presenting the meaning and concept of lifelong education, and consider the necessity of such education in light of the social and economic background of Japan. After the existing educational facilities are evaluated from the viewpoint of lifelong education, general problems in promoting such education are pointed out. Chapters 3-5 deal with education for special age groups--pre-adulthood, adulthood, and old age. Problems are pointed out, and proposals are made regarding education at every stage of life to be carried out at home, at school, and in society. Chapter 6 reiterates the Ministry of Education, Science, and Culture's commitment to lifelong education. (YLB)
