Nash, Jay B.
Reduced work loads, increased technology, and higher economic standards have produced the problems associated with the disposal and use of leisure time. Education must assume a major role in providing future adults with the attitudes and skills necessary to enable them to make wise use of their leisure time. This document contains a review of the history, philosophy, and founders of leisure time education. Also included are discussions concerning the role of the Federal government, future trends in leisure time and outdoor education, and quotations relevant to various aspects of this type of education.
